I want to share with you how to make Amazing DIY Lip Balm
Will use natural & organic ingredients, so your lips will be softer and smoother, and reused containers. Recycling your empties is free and it's one of the ways to build good karma :)
Step 1: Ingredients
- Natural Beeswax
- 100% Organic Coconut Oil
- Liquid Vitamin E Softgel Capsules
- Jojoba Oil
- Shea Butter (Karité)
Essential oil (optional)
Lip Balm Containers: used or new
Step 2: Reuse Old Containers
You can buy new containers or challenge yourself to keep lip balm/lip gloss containers. You can really reuse them!
Tip: For reuse container: You have to disassemble it, clean off remaining balm, and wash the pieces in a warm or boiling water.
Step 3: Beeswax 100% Pure and Organic
Step 4: Recipe
Take a bowl and add:
15g (2 full teaspoons) Solid Coconut Oil
10g (4 teaspoons) Liquid Jojoba Oil
5g (1 teaspoon) Shea Butter
2 Capsules Vitamin E (puncture the capsules and squeeze)
Tip 1: Keep 1:1:1 proportion beeswax, coconut oil & other oils
Tip 2: Add a chunk of your favorite lipstick and you will obtain Tinted Lip Balm
Take a pot, add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, put the bowl inside (be careful that no water gets inside the bowl) and slowly melt the beeswax & oils, stir it slightly to let the heat melt it naturally.
This prevents you from overheating your base.
Tip: Add essential oils after removing from heat.
Step 6: Pour the Mixture Into the Upright Tubes.
If you have upright tube container, pour the lip balm mixture carefully into it using a teaspoon.
If you are using the container of same type (EOS, like an egg). Join the upper and the middle parts. You will have an upside-down container, ready to fill. Pour the lip balm mixture into the lid, filling it just past the grating.
Step 7: And There You Have It!
Allow the lip balm until solid (about 20 minutes in the fridge)
