Have you ever made homemade lip balm?
You might be intimidated by it, but it is very easy and will cost you a mere pennies per tube. I made this batch and had 15 tubes of lip balm. I not only had plenty on hand for us, but I was able to give a ton away as well! 

3 tsp beeswax pellets (http://buff.ly/2a13ZeC)
2 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp cocoa butter (http://buff.ly/2a13W2E)
2 tsp oil - avocado, grapeseed, sesame, etc.
8 drops essential oil*
10-15 lip balm tubes
Pipette (optional)
Melt the beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter and oil together in a double boiler, stirring until smooth and melty
Remove from heat and add in the essential oils. Pour the mixture into the tubes and let cool for a few hours. If you want to make it really easy on yourself, buy this! There will be no mess. 

My favorite essential oil combinations are:
peppermint & stress away - smells like a mint cookie
thieves - makes a great fall lip balm
lavender & copaiba - luxurious
