DIY Natural Lip Balm | STYLE & HOME

This DIY natural lip balm only has 3 natural and pure ingredients (excluding the essential oil and tint if you add it – that makes it 5 ingredients). It’s silky, nourishing and moisturizing for your lips after you’ve used the lip scrub.

I’ve been on a DIY-binge lately, I mean why the heck not? It’s a great way to make the most of being stuck inside and still feel like you’re accomplishing something. I’ve found that “accomplishing” something daily is super important to stay positive and inspired.

This DIY natural lip balm only has 3 natural and pure ingredients (excluding the essential oil and tint if you add it – that makes it 5 ingredients). It’s silky, nourishing and moisturizing for your lips after you’ve used the lip scrub.

INGREDIENTS

• 1/4 cup beeswax beads

• 1/3 cup raw cacao butter

• 1/3 cup coconut oil

• A few drops of your favorite essential oil

• Optional: Add organic raspberry powder for color

INSTRUCTIONS

• Bring water to a boil and then reduce temperature to medium, slowly melt the beeswax. Then add cacao butter and coconut oil on medium heat.

• Once all ingredients are fully melted, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil.

• If you’re adding the tint, remove the mixture from the heat and vigorously stir in the color. You may need to put it back on the heat if it starts to solidify.

• Pour liquid mixture into jars. Store at room temperature for up to 3 months.

• For the extra jars of lip balm I’m not using, I keep mine in the fridge to stay fresh longer.

Happy DIYing
