Lips balm is the most important product that helps us maintain our lips soft and hydrated. Instead of buying one I choose to go the homemade hippie style with this beauty product as well :)

Here is how you can make in just a few steps your own lips balm – quick and simple and most important natural:

  1. First of all, you need beeswax (2 teaspoons) which is the main ingredient for lips balm – buy some from a beekeeper or a store you trust that really sells natural products.
  2. Add some oil – you can choose between extra-virgin olive oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, coconut oil.
  3. Melt the beeswax and oil using the bain-marie technique or in the microwaves (I prefer the first option).
  4. After these two ingredients are fully melted and you managed to combine them, leave the mixture to cool for a while.
  5. When the mixture begins to harden slightly it time to add the other ingredients which are the honey and essential oil.
  6. Add only a few drops of honey, because otherwise the lips balm will be too sticky.
  7. The final ingredient is the essential oil that will make your lips balm smell so wonderful – you can choose whatever aroma you like (orange, almonds, vanilla, coffee, peppermint etc.). A few drops are enough as well.
  8. Place the mixture in an appropriate recipient and leave it for a few hours to cool very well.

That’s it. In just a few steps you can make your own lips balm.

Enjoy! :)
