lipbalm DIY

January 16, 2018 at 12:38 Leave a comment

hey guys. just jumping on here quickly to share my lipbalm recipe before my good intentions fall flat.

i love making my own products, not because they’re superior or cheaper or cleaner (although they are all of that). making my own products totally meshes with my “i hate shopping” and “i hate making decisions” personality. there’s no redeeming the number of hours i’ve lost to zombie-mode in the pharmaceutical aisles! plus, i’m a creative sort. playing with ingredients in my kitchen is so much more my speed.

here’s the recipe!

  • 20g beeswax
  • 20g coconut oil
  • 10g sweet almond oil
  • 12 drops wintergreen eo
  • 2 drops rosemary eo
  • 2 inches aloe vera

heat the first 3 ingredients in a double-boiler, and add in the last 3 before it cools and sets. really really easy! let me know if you have any questions!
