Have you ever made your own lip balm? There are a lot of different methods and ways to make all sorts of lip balm, but here’s a really simple, fun, and inexpensive way to make the basic stuff in no time at all!
What you need:
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. almond oil
- Â½ tsp. grated beeswax
Combine all the ingredients in a microwave-safe container and pop it in the microwave. In 1-2 minutes, the beeswax should melt, and that’s it! You just made your own lip balm.
If you want to get a little fancy… You can add a bit of your favorite lipstick for extra color by stirring a dab in with the heated mixture. Martha Stewart Living has some simple instructions for adding essential oils and honey for scent and flavor as well.
If you want to get a lot of fancy… Get creative with the containers you put your gloss in – even make some labels! You can usually find little containers and tins at most craft stores, otherwise, Specialty Bottle has a huge selection.
I hope to make a video on this when I get a chance, but for now, give this a try and see what you think! Post any fun suggestions or additional tips you have in the comments below. Have fun!
