Lip Balms

I always carry lip balms with me but their effects never seem to last.

Now we have winter upon us and we are heating our houses the air can become very dry and lips become chapped.

I couldn’t ever imagine how making my own lip balms could be so easy.

If you love lip balms learning a great lip balm recipe can be a game changer.

Home made lip balms can be very purse friendly and now I make a whole batch to last.

If you love lip balms learning a great lip balm recipe can be a game changer.

Home-made lip balms can be very purse friendly and now I make a whole batch to last.

 

  1. Here’s my basic formula

  • I ordered a pack of 25 empty lip balm tubes (http://amzn.to/2ymPXdo )

  • I bought a tiny stainless steel funnel. Easier than a plastic funnel. You can remover any solid balm with a tooth pick.

  • 6 tablespoons Organic coconut oil or Shea butter.
  • 2 tablespoons Beeswax granules http://amzn.to/2Amk3zu

  • 30 Drops of our favourite essential oil.

  • I find it helpful to have a lip balm tray to hold up the tubes whilst the liquid sets.

  • Here’s where I buy mine from: http://bit.ly/2k719F3

    1. Simple method.

You’ll need only 10 minutes, honestly!

Melt coconut oils in a double boiler or pan with a Pyrex dish inside over a medium heat, stirring frequently until all is melted. Quarter fill the pan with simmering water.

Add your favourite essential oils.

You can also add vitamin E oil.

Carefully and slowly pour a small amount into each tube. NB Mixture will harden rapidly.

Let it cool for about and hour then use as normal.

Any extra balm left use on your feet and elbows.

Leave the tubes lying around the house.

As always please remember not all oils are created equal. I only use 100% therapeutic grade oils with active components and no fillers or chemicals.

DILUTE! DILUTE! DILUTE!

These oils are plant based medicine. Don’t misuse or abuse them.
