D.I.Y Natural Lip Balm

  • Ingredients:

    * 2 oz. + 1 heaping Tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or Almond Oil

    * 1.5 tsp vitamin E Essential Oil (You can use the gel caps or the dropper formula)

    * 2 oz Cosmetic Grade Beeswax

    * Plastic Lip Balm Containers

  • Extra:

    Optional: 25 drops vanilla essential oil or peppermint essential oil (or a scent you prefer, just make sure to use an essential oil for fragrance)

    Optional: A slice of your favorite colored lip stick if you’d like to add a slight tint to the balm.

  • Equipment:

    * Sauce pan
    * Metal mason jar lid ring
    * Wood spoon

  • Step one:

    The first step is to place your coconut oil, beeswax, and vitamin E oil into a glass measuring cup. The vitamin E will act as a moisturizer and preservative, the coconut oil is our moisturizer, and the beeswax will hold everything together.

  • Step two:

    Next, get a pan and fill it about half way with water and bring it to a boil. I also put a metal mason jar lid inside of ours to create a homemade double boiler type contraption.

    * You do not want to place the glass measuring cup right in your pan as it may crack from the heat.

  • Step three:

    Once the water is at a slight boil, place your glass measuring cup into the water to melt the oils. After all of the oils are melted together, the beeswax will take the longest, you should have a nice golden liquid.

  • Do this while your balm is still over the heat so that the cooler oil doesn’t cause your balm to solidify again.

    Add either a vanilla essential oil or peppermint essential oil scent to it using essential oils. You can also add in flavoring.

  • Fragrance:

    some oils are stronger than others, so you might consider adding a few drops at a time until the scent is to your liking.

    Flavoring: To test the flavor of your balm, you can dab a small amount onto your lips. Keep in mind that the flavors get a bit stronger as the balm solidifies.

  • Finish product:

    Now pour in your mixture of your very own custom lip balm. Nothing more better then making and achieving your own product!

    Suggestion:

    Best to make puffy Lips secret ingredient (find out on my older tip) with peppermint oil.
