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, I will never buy from a store again! Don’t forget to subscribe for new vids every M-W-F

Supplies:
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 (I purchased at Michaels in the jewerly section but you can find online in different shapes and sizes, options below)
Round:

 

Recipe:
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

Tips:
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
