I have perpetually dry lips and have trouble finding the perfect moisturizing lip balm that’s not full of yucky additives. So yesterday when I was experimenting with all my new supplies, I came up with this amazingly moisturizing lavender lip balm blend. The mix of oils, butters, and vitamin E nourish the skin and the lavender lends its soothing properties. Let me know how you like it!
Lavender Lip Balm
- 1 1/2 tsp. shea butter
- 1 1/2 tsp. cocoa butter
- 1 tbsp. jojoba oil
- 2 tsp. beeswax pellets
- 7 drops lavender essential oil
- 3 drops Vitamin E oil
- Containers (I use these 5 ml pots)
Combine beeswax and oils in a glass bowl and heat slowly in microwave or double boiler until beeswax has melted and combined with oils. Remove bowl from heat and drop in essential oil and vitamin E oil. Immediately transfer the balm into your desired containers. Allow to cool completely before capping and using. This recipe will fill 4 of the 5 ml pots.
- Be sure that all of the products you use are pure, food grade, and safe, preferably organic
- Don’t forget to sterilize your containers
