I like a pleasant fresh minty feeling with lip balms but you can experiment with your own lip balm oils. In addition to peppermint and wild orange, you could try one or a combination of two of these: ginger, lime, bergamot, spearmint, lavender, and frankincense.

One to three weeks ahead of time: To make vanilla infused jojoba oil: simply slice open a vanilla bean and drop into a bottle of jojoba oil. Do this up to three weeks in advance to infuse the oil with a rich vanilla aroma. This is optional. Just plain-old jojoba is fine!
Equipment: You'll need either little tins or one of these lip balm tube trays. This one comes with 50 empty tubes. A pipette to fill the tubes is handy but not absolutely necessary.
