DIY Lip Balm Recipe
Do you love yummy lip balms as much as I do?
Especially during summer, keeping our lips hydrated after being in the sun….and I love something with all the summer feels!
This is a really fun lip balm DIY, and the best thing is, you can add whatever essential oils you want and make it just perfect for you and your friends! These make PERFECT gifts for friends and family….so special and soooo good! Everyone is sure to rave over them, so go ahead and make a bunch at a time! I like to keep extras in a drawer for those last minute gift needs! Giving something so small can say so much, just to be thought of! (And don’t forget to put back a stash for yourself)
You’ll need to create a little double boiler if you don’t already have one. Just add a couple inches of water to a saucepan and put a glass bowl on top, making sure that the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Bring the water to a boil, and then add in your ingredients.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/3 cup shea butter
1/3 cup cocoa butter
2 tablespoons beeswax
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
Tangerine & Lemon EO
Once the water is boiling, add in coconut oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, and jojoba oil. Stir occasionally until everything is melted and combined. Remove from heat and stir in your essential oil!
Once it’s cooled a bit, transfer to a container of your choice. Apply as needed!
