Make Your Own Lip Balm
No matter the season, lips need hydration. Be sure to drink plenty of water and use only natural products.
Here is a receipt that is perfect for adding your personal favorite flavor AND using something that is safe for the entire family!
2 tsp beeswax
2 tsp oil (Jojoba, Sweet Almond, Coconut, Olive Oil)
5 drops essential or flavored oil
2 drops pure vitamin E oil
Melt beeswax and oil together. This can be done in by placing these two ingredients in a zip-lock bag and placing into gently boiling water. When melted, set aside until lukewarm. Add essential oil and vitamin E to the zip-lock bag. Knead ingredients in bag until well mixed. Cut off a corner of the bag and squeeze into a lip balm pot.
- To make a stick balm, add 1 or 2 additional teaspoons of beeswax.
- In place of oil, shea or coco butter can be used.
