DIY Natural and Organic Lip Balm

I have wanted to make my own lip balm for the longest time but I couldn’t get my hands on beeswax till I found the lovely Ekta’s shop, Green Junction on eBay. I am amazed by her customer service. She got my products to me in two days and she personally messaged me to let me know the tracking details. She is such a friendly person and I am glad I found her shop for some of my DIY needs. You should check her out if you are into DIY beauty projects. She sent me three lip balm recipes with my beeswax which was so thoughtful of her. Thanks Ekta! Here’s her Facebook page, if you would like to visit her and see what she sells. 

So, here is what I used to make my own lip balm:

1.5 tsp of beeswax

1 tbsp of raw cocoa butter

1 tbsp of coconut oil

1 tsp of sweet almond oil

6 drops of vitamin E oil

3 drops of lavender oil

I grated the beeswax and added it to the cocoa butter, coconut oil, almond oil, and Vitamin E oil. I melted this over a double boiler and then added the lavender oil. You can skip the lavender oil if you don’t want to use it.

I then poured the balm into old makeup jars I had lying around my house.

I love my first attempt at a lip balm. It is a heavy duty moisturizer and I think it is great to keep those chapped and flaky looking lips at bay.

 

 

 

Let me know if you try making your own lip balm, or if you already have a recipe I can check out.

Till later my lovelies!

    That’s a lovely and quite moisturising lip balm recipe, Patricia.
    I need lipbalm all year round , one of favourite lipbalm is with peppermint essential oil , I like cooling and refreshing after effect of peppermint oil after application on lips
