Clean Living // Lip Balm

Monday

Creating lip balms is an easy beauty product to make a lot of different flavors and create extras for gifts for friends! Here's how it's done: 

Peppermint:
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil
   1 tbsp beeswax pearls
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil 
10 drops peppermint essential oil
*optional. Organic food coloring for red tint.

Honey + Chamomile:
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil

   1 tbsp beeswax pearls

2 tsp honey

1/4 tsp vitamin E oil 
1 tsp chamomile* you can find in the herb section at your local health store

Lavender + Vanilla:
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp beeswax pearls
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
5 drops lavender essential oil 
5 drops vanilla essential oil

Chocolate: 
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil 
1 tsp honey
2 tsp cocoa powder 

On the stove top, begin heating a pan with four cups of water on medium. Mix all of the ingredients together in a small glass bowl. Place the glass bowl inside of the pan of water. Mix the ingredients as they begin to melt. Once the ingredients are a consistent texture, remove from the pan and pour into a small container (I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby). Let this cool at room temperature for one hour, and then cool in the fridge for three hours. Enjoy!

  1. This is one I have to try! I'm a sucker for lip products, but I know many of them contain harsh ingredients. The honey + chamomile sounds great for me.

  13. i think it's so important that lip products are as natural as you can get them. think of how many times you lick your lips everyday. ew to chemicals.
