DIY Lip Balm

Caring and nourishing your lips with a lip balm, softens as well as adds shine. Applying a lip balm should invariably an everyday routine. Lip balm’s can well be made at home. Let’s have a look at what to start with;
  • A small tin
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon beeswax pellets
  • 1 teaspoon almond oil
  • 15 drops of cinnamon essential oil
  • 3/4 tablespoon of raw honey

Once you have everything together, here’s how you make the lip balm:

Start with mixing together the coconut oil, beeswax pellets, and almond oil. Next, microwave or heat the mixture on the gas for about 1-2 minutes.

Once the mixture is heated up, remove it from the gas and immediately add 15-20 drops of your essential oil. Now pour the mixture in the container tin. Allow to cool for 15 minutes, until solid. We like to let ours cool for at least 45minutes to be on the safe side.

Once it’s solid, it is all pretty and ready to use. You can experiment with a variety of lip balms.
