Pour 1/4 cup almond oil into the measuring cup.
Place measuring cup in the saucepan of warm water and heat gently.
Slowly add 1/4 ounce of beeswax to the warm oil, and wait for the wax to completely melt. (Make sure you keep enough water in the saucepan as the wax melts! Add more water if needed.)
Using an old metal spoon, mix the now liquid wax and oil potion together.
Flavor the balm by adding five drops of flavor oil and stir to blend.
Remove measuring cup with mixture from heat and set aside.
Now test the consistency and strength of your lip balm!
Pull your spoon out of the blended mixture, allowing a small puddle of balm to remain in spoon.
Carefully place spoon in refrigerator to cool.
When cool, gently run your finger over the hardened balm mixture.
If the Balm is too hard (waxy), add more oil to your mixture.
If it is too soft, add more wax.
Do this until you've reached the desired consistency.
A few more drops of flavor oil can be added at this time if desired.
Place measuring cup in the saucepan with water and back onto the stove to re-warm and melt any ingredients you may have added.
When all ingredients are thoroughly melted and mixed together, have an adult spoon balm into small jars.
Set aside to cool.
