DIY – 5 Minute Lip Balm

DIY – 5 Minute Lip Balm

Did you know that you can make homemade lip balm in 5 minutes?! Plus you can customize your color and scent.

Beeswax (I purchased at Michaels but you can buy online as well)
Coconut Oil (you can find at any grocery store)
Vitamin E Oil
Peppermint Oil (or any scented essential oil)
Lipstick or Crayons for color
Plastic pots

4Tbs Beeswax
4Tbs Coconut Oil
1Tsp Vitamin E Oil (optional)
6-8 drops Peppermint (or an flavor oil) for scent
*this makes about 6-8 lip balms…you can use any 1:1 ratio of wax to oil to make smaller or larger amounts

If you don’t want to use the microwave a double boiler works as well. Just place your (heat safe) measuring glass in a pan filled with almost boiling water and stir until ingredients are all melted. Add Vitamin E oil and essential oils at the end so that they don’t evaporate.

If you are re-using your old EOS container add any leftover EOS balm in the mixture and it will have an even silkier texture.

This recipe makes a firm balm so use less beeswax if you want to make a lip gloss
