I am lip balm obsessed. I have purchased every brand, flavor, size and shape. I have them everywhere. They are in my car, purse, work bag, nightstand, bathroom, kitchen, everywhere.
I just could not stop buying them, because I knew I could find the perfect one. I don’t like them too sticky, fruity, waxy or thin. They need staying power. They need just enough scent and flavor. They need all natural ingredients. I know, it is a lot of thought over lip balm. Show me grace, it’s my thing.
I decided to make my own when nothing fit my requirements, and my husband was tiring of finding them everywhere.
Who knew it was easy to create lip perfection!
What you need:
shea butter (super cheap, can find if on amazon)
coconut oil (unrefined)
beeswax (amazon, farmer’s market, health food store)
essential oil of choice (I used a mix of citrus fresh and grapefruit this time)
12 empty lip balm containers (tubes, pots, whatever you prefer, again on amazon)
Now the fun part.
Take 2 tablespoons of the beeswax, Shea butter, and coconut oil and melt in a glass bowl in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes, in 30 second intervals, stirring in between.
Add a few drops of your oils. Stir. Pour into containers. Let it sit until firm.
Done! Lip perfection!
Smells just just like summer.
