Fall through Spring my lips get so dry I can go through chap-stick like crazy. No matter what I’ve tried it doesn’t seem to work very well, or last that long. Why I haven’t thought about making my own Lip Balm is beyond me but the recipe has been sitting around my house just waiting to be made.
What you will need
Small containers to store the lip balm in. I used these clear plastic cosmetic containers from amazon.
Measuring cup to pour
1 cup shaved beeswax
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vitamin E oil
2 drops tea tree oil
Using the double broiler ( or simply put a saucepan over a pot of boiling water) Melt the beeswax. Once it’s melted add in the coconut oil and melt. Remove from heat. Add in the other oils mix and begin to pour into your containers. Let sit and cool before covering.
Easy, quick and it works better than anything I’ve picked up at the store. One application lasted for hours on end even through eating. Worked on my daughters dry lips as well. I was able to get 20 5 gram containers filled
