DIY lip balm recipe: Lately I’ve tried different #diy lip balm recipes and I am going to share them in one post today. I’ve already shared some of them before, they have all the same ingredients, with some variations that I hope you’ll enjoy.
🔸 Cacao lip balm
Smells delicious! I used again the coconut oil, olive oil, beeswax (1tbsp of each) and a capsule vit E, then I just added a tsp of raw cacao.
The high levels of antioxidants protect and repair the skin from damage and premature aging. And as a potent anti-inflammatory, it soothes redness and blemishes, improving the skin’s complexion.
This time I’ve tried a new ingredient, the rice wax. I wanted a vegan recipe but the result was so compact, I finally added some beeswax to have a smoother recipe.
Ingredients: 1 tbsp beeswax, 1tbsp rice wax, 1tbsp coconut oil, 1tsp olive oil, vit E, and 10 drops of lemon essential oil (without furanocoumarins if you want to use it at day, because it’s a photosensitive oil).
I love the smell and the lemon has a lot of benefits ( stimulating, calming, astringent, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant and anti-fungal…)
The third one is actually a #fail, because it didn’t worked it. I saw on Pinterest so many posts about honey lip balm and I wanted to try. Except that the honey did not bind to the mixture when cooled and remained separated on the bottom.
Next time I’ll use a powder of honey just to be sure !
Hope you liked it!xX
