COMMENT

I love making homemade lip balm, especially because I can't find the right flavors or tastes at the store!

Have you ever wanted to make homemade lip balms yourself?

Do you know how?

Well now you do!

I've got the top 7 homemade lip balms that you've got to try and make and they are super easy!

1. Luscious Lavender Lip Balm

Luscious Lavender Lip Balm

Lavender is absolutely one of my favorite scents and it's so calming for your chapped lips!

If you can't find the right lavender lip balm in the stores, why not go with homemade lip balm that smells just like lavender?

This recipe is super easy to make and it's so good for your lips!

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp jojoba, almond, or olive oil

1 Tbsp grated beeswax or beeswax pearls

1 tsp honey

1/4 tsp vitamin E oil (or 3 punctured, squeezed out liquid vitamin E capsules)

7 drops lavender essential oil (or other essential oil)

1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)

1 tsp colored, natural lipstick (optional, if you want it to have a hint of color)

Preparation:

Warm the oils, beeswax and honey in a small, stainless steel pot or bowl.

Be sure to warm it on VERY low heat.

(You can use a double boiler, if you’d like.) Stir until the beeswax is completely melted.

Remove from heat and quickly whisk in the essential oil, vitamin E, cocoa powder, and colored lipstick.2

Place the bottom of the bowl into a shallow pan of ice water and continue whisking quickly as you add the honey.

Once the honey is incorporated, quickly transfer the balm into your lip balm container (tube or tin) and allow to set for 3 hours.

2. Coco-Rosey Homemade Lip Balm

Coco-Rosey Homemade Lip Balm

Are you looking for something that smells just like roses?

Oh yeah, this is it!

It smells so light, so sweet and so beautiful, but it also is great for your lips too!

This homemade lip balm will keep your lips kissably smooth and so, so soft!

Ingredients:

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 Tbsp grated cocoa butter

1 Tbsp dried rosebuds (or any dried flower, green tea, etc.)

1/4 tsp vitamin E oil (or 3 punctured, squeezed out vitamin E capsules)

3 drops rose essential oil (optional, or substitute lavender, vanilla, or sweet orange)

Preparation:

On very low heat, melt the coconut oil in a small stainless steel bowl or pot.

After the oil is liquid, add your roses (or other dried flowers) and stir well.

Allow to steep (again, on very low heat) for 1 hour.

Strain oil into a bowl through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth.

Wipe out your original heating pot/bowl, pour oil back in, and return to heat.

Add cocoa butter and stir until melted.

Remove from heat, add vitamin E oil and essential oil and stir well.

Transfer to a small container and let set for 3 hours (or until completely set).
