The 100% natural lip balm

The 100% natural lip balm

by Annie Roy

4 years ago

The trick to avoiding dry lips in winter is to make yourself a 100% natural homemade lip balm. Very easy to make and ready in 5 minutes. Here's what you need:

  • 4 tbsp. of beeswax
  • 4 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 C. liquid vitamin E
  • A few drops of essential oil if desired

You will find everything at Avril. And here are the steps to follow:

  1. Grate beeswax if purchased in bulk and pour into a glass measuring cup.
  2. Add coconut oil to the same cup.
  3. Heat 1 minute in the microwave. It is necessary to obtain a melted and uniform texture without boiling.
  4. Add vitamin E and essential oil drops and mix well.
  5. Pour into small containers and wait for everything to harden. (2 hours)

Small containers can be purchased from Amazon but why not try recycling small containers you already have?
