This fun recipe will give you a great organic lip balm! All you need are a few simple ingredients. You can add in more essential oils to this recipe if you want to, or other things you think would go well with the “recipe”. This will make 3 lip balms.
- 1/4 cup of beeswax
- 3 tbs organic shea butter
- 2 tbs organic safflower oil
- 2 tsp essential oil (I used peppermint)
- 3 containers
Microwave the beeswax, shea butter and safflower oil until it has turned into a liquid.
Once all melted, mix in your essential oils, and some food colouring if you want it. Make sure you do this quickly, because the liquid will cool very quickly.
Pour all of this into your containers and let cool. I put mine into the freezer just to make sure it was all done!
Create your own little label like I did, or just leave it blank. This is a great way to reuse old lip balm containers, and is a great Christmas/birthday present idea!
