If you’re tired of shelling out money for store-bought lip balms that sometimes contain harmful chemicals, why not make your own lip balm at home? Making your own lip balm may sound complicated, but with a few simple ingredients and steps you can craft your own moisturizing, chemical-free lip balm.
To make your own lip balm, you’ll need beeswax, almond oil, shea butter, and essential oil. You’ll also need a double boiler to melt down the beeswax and other ingredients. Once the ingredients are all melted down, use a lip balm container to pour in the liquid and let it cool and harden.
First, you’ll need to put a few tablespoons of beeswax, shea butter, and almond oil into the double boiler. Turn the stove onto medium heat and allow the ingredients to melt completely, stirring the mixture occasionally.
Then, once melted, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and stir everything together. Once the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, turn off the heat. Next, take your lip balm container and slowly pour the melted lip balm mixture into it.
You can buy lip balm containers at most craft stores. You may also want to pick up some colorant if you want to add a bit of color to your lip balm. Fill the container with the melted mixture and let it cool.
You’ll need to let the lip balm cool for a few hours until it’s solid.When your lip balm is finally cool and hard, your homemade lip balm is ready to use! Make sure to keep your lip balm in a cool, dry place for best results. This lip balm is perfect for providing your lips with extra moisture and nutrients.
You don’t need to settle for store-bought lip balms filled with harsh chemicals. Instead, make your own nourishing and chemical-free lip balm at home in just a few easy steps. Enjoy.
