DIY Organic Lip Balm

Image

Dry, chapped lips? This stuff is so nourishing and locks in moisture. It also creates a wind barrier and feels smooth and luxurious.

I’ll get right to it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Beeswax (organic)
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Organic Shea Butter
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Pure Organic Lanolin
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2-3 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil (optional)
  • 1-2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil (optional)

Directions:

  1. Melt Beeswax in a double boiler with Shea Butter, stirring occasionally.
  2. Add olive oil and Lanolin to the double boiler, and stir together.
  3. Once all combined, remove from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Immediately pour into lip balm tins or other jar and let cool.
  5. Once cooled, store covered at room temperature and apply anytime! 🙂

On a side note, just know that this is not a recipe to use in chapstick containers. It will be a little bit softer than chapstick, so it can get messy with any type of warmth from either the weather or your lips. Therefore, I recommend something you can easily use your finger with like a jar or a tin. ENJOY!!!! 🙂

xoxo, Jen
