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 (3 tablespoons)
Cacao Butter: 20 grams (2 tablespoons)
Sunflower Oil: 45 grams (1/4 cup)
Lanolin: 2 drops
Essential Oils: 3 drops of Rosemary & 15 drops of Peppermint (feel free to use any essential oils you’d like, but this combo is my favorite)
Since I don’t own a double broiler, I just used a glass bowl over a boiling pot of water to melt the wax. Since beeswax and cacao butter melt at a higher temperature, start by melting them together first. Once melted, remove from heat, add additional ingredients and stir very well… that’s it!! Yes, it’s that easy!! If you’re just refilling some tubes you can use a dropper and add the leftover to a microwavable container to melt and use later. Or if you’d like to make a bunch of it at once, check out this kit below . My only tip is to work quickly once all ingredients have been added as it will harden fairly quickly. And place the bowl over the boiling water again if you need to melt it more.
