PostSubject: DIY: Craft Your Own Lip Balm   Thu Nov 17, 2016 7:23 pm



Let's make lip balm!

It’s fun to concoct lip balm recipes using your favorite botanical ingredients and essential oils!
As a general rule, blend 3 parts carrier oil to 1 part beeswax, and add 1 part butter if using. Coarsely chop the beeswax or use beeswax pastilles. Place beeswax, butter, and oils in a small pot or glass Pyrex measuring cup and gently heat in the top of a double boiler until the beeswax and butters have melted. Once melted, remove from the stovetop and add essential oils and vitamin E oil. Immediately pour the mixture into clear or white lip balm containers. You can also purchase tins or glass jars. Allow to cool completely before placing caps onto the lip balm containers.
If your lip balm is too soft, re-melt it and add more beeswax. If it is too hard, re-melt and add more oil. You can also adjust your recipes with the seasons: harder lip balms are better for warm summer weather and softer lip balms are great during cold fall and winter months. Add essential oils at your discretion. A general amount is 2 drops per container, but this varies depending upon the essential oil used. Less is better when it comes to essential oils, as you don’t want to end up with lip balm that will sting or irritate your lips.

3 Lip Balm Recipes…

This sweet, citrusy, and warming lip balm has just a hint of spice. Made with organic mandarin and nutmeg essential oils, mango butter, sunflower oil, and other botanical ingredients.
