I have been having trouble with honey mixing in very well in my lip balm. I am using beeswax, sweet almond oil and honey and once I get to the end of my batch, I have mainly honey left over. Is there a particular temp that I should heat these up to or another trick to get it to mix better? Thanks in advance.

Like maremare said, honey is water soluable and doesn't like to play well with oils.  You might want to look into a honey powder.
