DIY - The Good Stuff Lip Balm

One thing you need in your life no matter the seasons or age? Lip Balm! 

Lip Balm is a beauty basic and the price range goes from few cents up to even hundred (and who buys that one must be totally insane). 

Fortunately enough you can make the best quality lip balm at home with only few ingredients for very low price. 

We all know in beauty it's all about high quality oils in other words fats (never thought of it this way, huh? Take that skinny bitches!). Every oil carries little bit different minerals and vitamins and you have to evaluate what do you need your lip balm to do. I went for the olive oil because I had it at home.

So what you'll need: 

  • beeswax 
  • coconut oil
  • oil of your preference (olive, almond, rose, calendula, ... )
  • aroma oil 
  • some case
  • small heat resistant bowl 

And you can also add: 

  • lipstick you won't cry for to get colour
  • spice for exfoliation
  • glitter for effect

Step 1

In the small bowl mix 2 tbs of coconut oil with 2 tbs of second oil and 5 drops of the aroma oil.

Step 2

Cut beeswax on small chunks if you didn't buy it like that already and add 2 tbs to the oil mixture. If you would like your lip balm to have some colour take some old lipstick into the mix and remember more you add more intense the result colour will be. Put all this to microwave or stand the bowl into a pot wit hot water and let it melt.

Step 3

When properly melted, add some spices or glitter if you wish and pour mixture into some tin or plastic case (I personally love mint cases for their size). Let it all cool off and harden. 

Note: If you are not happy with the result for it's colour or consistency you can always melt it again and add more base or oil only.
