We're getting all DIY over here for so many reasons, including that it's fun, cheaper than the alternative and a GREAT way to get creative with your hands and mind. I'm all for all of the above.
This lip balm is also super easy to make and makes a LOT to share with friends and family, so I tend to make them around the holidays and birthdays....
Of course you know this, but when you're using and making products for your body and skin, please only use the very best. And know that not all essential oils are created equal. Especially if you're trying to go chemical free, you may not know that store-bought essential oils are not always reliable and in fact contain chemicals themselves. Well, that's a conundrum. If you ever have any questions on where you can get your oils, do reach out and I'll give you the inside scoop!
So without further ado...
2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
2 Tablespoons Beeswax
2 Tablespoons Sweet Almond Oil
Melt the above in a double boiler, then set aside and add:
3 drops Young Living Lavender Essential Oil
3 drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil
Pour into lip balm tubes (I love to use tubes that come with a holder ~ like this one ~ since they sit up straight and cause less mess). Let sit at least 30 minutes to harden.
Just a couple of notes:
1. You can easily double or half this recipe, as needed.
2. I bought some cute labels such as these, on Amazon, but I'm sure you can find loads of other ones too.
Enjoy and pucker up!
