Cooler winds will be whipping around soon enough and my lips always get chapped. This year, I thought I would try making some lip balms to help combat my dried lips. First one I tried was a Lavender Lip Balm Recipe.
I have thought about making my own lip balms so many times. However, I was always scared to do it. I thought it would be hard to make. Boy, was I surprised at how easy it was!
These will make wonderful gifts as well. Perfect for stocking stuffers or for something additional to give.
With just a few simple ingredients and some boiling water, you have your own lip balm!
Lavender Lip Balm Recipe
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- 1/2 ounce beeswax pellets
- 1/2 ounce coconut oil
- 1/4 ounce shea butter
- 1/4 ounce of cocoa butter
- 5 drops of Lavender essential oils
- 10 round lip balm containers
- glass measuring cup
- a large sauce pan (big enough to set the measuring cup in)
- popsicle stick to stir with
Step 1: Measure out beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter and place them in your glass measuring cup. (photo shows each one individually)
Step 2: Fill your large sauce pan with about an 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water and bring the water to a boil.
Step 3: Once the water is boiling, place the glass measuring cup with the ingredients into the center of the large sauce pan.
Step 4: Stir every few minutes until everything is melted.
Step 5: Once it is all melted, remove from heat and let it sit for 3 minutes. While waiting the 3 minutes, line up our lip balm containers so you can fill them.
Step 6: Add Lavender essential oil and stir.
Step 7: Pour mixture into the lip balm containers and let them cool before capping. Be careful not to over fill. It is easy to do, trust me.
Step 8: Once the lip balm is cooled, you can put the caps on and add labels. (Keep reading to get the free printable)
