I made a small batch of my favourite home made organic lip balm today! This recipe is simple, effective and all natural.
-1 tsp beeswax
-3/4 tsp coconut oil
-3/4 tsp coco butter
-1/2 tsp shea butter
-2 tsp olive oil
-2 drops peppermint essential oil
Place all ingredients in a double boiler and constantly stir mixture just till beeswax is melted. I personally do not own a double boiler so I use a glass bowl in a pot of boiling water instead which works just as well. Pour into tubes or pots using a funnel and cool. And that’s it. Super easy!
Tips: Keep in mind that the olive oil is yellow and can be replaced with another carrier oil if you prefer a more white lip balm. Feel free to add natural colour as desired.
