DIY Lip Balm to Try at Home

| | 0 Comments

Everyone wants to get soft and luscious lips that won’t look dead dry, especially in cold environments or weather. The skin on your lips is sensitive compared to the rest of your skin, and it is likely to fall victim to a harsh lifestyle like the sun and other severe weather conditions. To pay some attention to it, why not provide it with some proper nourishment that they need, especially if you are suffering from peeling, dry, or chapped lips. You may have bought a lip balm from the market, and it does not quite match your sensitive lips, so why not prepare your lip balm at home itself with some regular ingredients. You can also gift them to someone if you lack gift ideas.

Here are five DIY lip balm that you can try at home!

1. Lavender Lip Balm.

The presence of lavender essential oil in the lip balm will give your lips a heavenly taste. It will also feel soft on your lips.

7 drops of lavender essential oil
¼ teaspoon vitamin E oil (you can do this by squeezing out a vitamin E capsule)
½ teaspoon colored lipstick (this is for a splash of color)
1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Method

Heat the oil (whichever one you choose) and the beeswax in a small stainless steel bowl. Make sure you heat it on very low heat. Stir until the beeswax is melted and whisk in the essential oil, colored lipstick, cocoa powder, and vitamin E. Place the small bowl with the bottom in a pan of ice water. Continue to whisk the mixture while adding the honey. Once the honey is mixed in, transfer the mixture to a lip balm container or tube. Let it set in the refrigerator for 3 hours. Your lip balm is ready.
