Chapped lips aren’t a pretty sight, especially when the skin is peeling and there’s blood (ouch!). So, aside from drinking lots of water (don’t over-drink, though. Water poisoning isn’t pretty either), you give your lips a hand in the moisturizing department by applying lip balm 😍
Pssst, we’ve a printable recipe card for this one too, so grab it from down below!
What You’ll Need:
- Beeswax 👉 We used Natural Refined Beeswax Pastille (USA) here!
- Refine Shea Butter
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Refined Coconut Oil
- Pomace Olive Oil
- Peppermint Essential Oil by Yein & Young
- Mixed Berries Lip Balm Flavor
- (Optional) Craftiviti’s Lip Liquid – Red 👉 You can choose among various shades of red, but our go-to is Red 21.
- Glass Pipette
- Metal Scoop/Glass Beaker
- Cooking Pan/Pot
- Glass Stirrer
- 5 Lip Balm Tubes (5ml each)
- Kitchen Scale
- Add 2 tbsp of Natural Refined Beeswax Pastille and 1 tbsp of Refined Shea Butter in the metal scoop/glass beaker.
- Place the metal scoop/glass beaker over a pan of water on a stove, and melt the contents. Stir occasionally to make sure the contents melt evenly.
- Once melted, add 1 tbsp of Sweet Almond Oil, Refined Coconut Oil, and Pomace Olive Oil. Stir until it’s evenly blended.
- Remove the metal scoop/glass beaker from the pan.
- Add 5 drops of Mixed Berries Lip Balm Flavor, and 2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil. Stir to blend.
- (Optional) Add in up to 5 drops of lip liquid to give your lip balms a light tint! Stir to blend again.
- Pour mixture into lip balm tubes. Set it aside for it to harden and cool before capping the lip balms.
*Note: Make sure that your lip balm containers are screwed all the way down before pouring your mixture in, or you’ll end up with short lip balms!
