How to make homemade lip balm


homemade-lip-balmChapped lips are always an unseemly sight, let alone the fact that if you don’t keep moisturising them, they could end up bleeding. Here are some homemade coconut lip balm you can try.

– Take 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of beeswax, 1 tablespoon of shea butter or cocoa butter, and a small container to place your lip balm in.
– Melt the coconut oil, beeswax and butter together over a pot of simmering water, and stir gently.
– Once the mixture is smooth, you can add a scent of your choice like lemon or vanilla. You add pink colouring to your lip balm, but can also opt for vibrant colours like purple.
– Once the colours and scent is mixed, transfer the mixture to the container, and let it cool.
