Easy All Natural Lip Balm/Chapstick
OMG y’all this is the easiest thing to make. I will never buy lip balm from the store again! So start saving your empty tubes now.
Beeswax: 20 grams (2 tablespoons)
Shea Butter: 10 grams (1 tablespoons)
Cacao Butter: 20 grams (2 tablespoons)
Carrier oilCarrier oil: 40 grams (4 tablespoons)
Lanolin: 2 drops (optional)
Essential Oils: 20-30 drops*
*You can use any combo your little heart desires. Here are a few ideas:
– Vanilla & Peppermint
– Cinnamon, Vanilla & Honey
– Orange, Tangerine & Vanilla
– Peppermint & Rosemary
– Vanilla & Honey
Use your creativity and make up your own blend. Start small and add more oils as needed.
Start melting the beeswax and cacao butter first since they’re the hardest. Then add in your carrier oils. Once everything is completely melted, remove from heat then add your essential oils.
I use a tadka pan over a pot of boiling water but you can use any kind of double broiler or the microwave. If you’re going the microwave route just make sure you keep a close eye on it and only melt at small increments.
Yes, it’s that easy!! If you’re just refilling some tubes you can use a medicine syringe and add the leftover to a microwavable container to melt and use later. Or if you’d like to make a larger batch, check out this kit below . My only tip is to work quickly, once all ingredients have been added as it will harden fairly quickly.
