Today it’s going to be all about how you can make your very own natural and moisturising lip balm! It only consist of 4 ingredients and it is super easy to make.
If you haven’t noticed it yet, then I can tell you that I love to make homemade skincare products. This time it was time to make homemade lip balm. I can absolutely not take credit for the recipe as I’ve mainly just followed ones I’ve found on the internet, but I’ve left out any kind of essential oils and just added some vitamin E oil. That is just my preference to leave out essential oils since I often find that lip balms can get too perfumed, and I actually just prefer the smell of more discrete and natural ingredients such as coconut oil and shea butter, this just smells divine, if you ask me!
- 2 tbs of shea butter
- 1 tbs of coconut oil
- 1 tbs of beeswax
- A few drops of vitamin E oil
This amount fills 4 of these small tin containers.
How to do it
You put all the ingredients into a doubled boiler and wait for it all to melt and mix. Pour it all into small tin containers, I bought mine from Naturligolie.dk, and then put them in the fridge for about 1/2 hour. Easy peasy, now you’ve made homemade natural and moisturising lip balm!
“This is also a lovely little gift idea, which you can either give alone or you can make a little gift basket filled with homemade body butter, a body scrub and lip balm!
