If you’re tired of expensive lip balms that seem to contain nothing but chemicals, try making your own! Although it may seem like a chore, making lip balm is super simple. In fact, the hardest part may be finding little containers to keep them in!
- 2 ounces of Coconut oil or beeswax
- ¼ teaspoon of vitamin E oil
- your favorite essential oils (peppermint is wonderful!) or flavor
And that’s it! You can flavor the lip gloss with honey, dried tea leaves, dried flower petals, cocoa butter, or even a few drops of essential oil.
Put a pot of water on medium heat on the stove. Take a smaller pot and fill it with the coconut oil or the beeswax you want in the lipbalm, then set the pot into the water so it is not touching the bottom, and the ingredients aren’t getting wet, but the side of the pot are mostly submerged. Once the oil or wax has melted, mix in your other ingredients. Have a little jar ready, and dump the mixed ingredients into it, then let it harden. And you have yourself a cute little jar of the best, cheapest, lip balm you’ve ever owned!
