Easy 10 Minute DIY Moisturizing Lip Balm

Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins

Ingredients

  • 1.5 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • 1.5 tbsp Jojoba Oil
  • 2 tsp Beeswax
  • 1/8 tsp Hemp Seed Oil
  • 1/8 tsp Vitamin E
  • 10-20 drops Peppermint Oil
  • 15-20 Lip Balm Tubes or Tins
  • 1 Plastic Pipette (not needed, but helpful)

Instructions

  • Put all of the ingredients (except for the peppermint oil, that will go in last) in a double boiler or oven safe bowl
  • Melt the ingredients and mix together. If you don't have a double boiler, you can place a glass oven safe bowl over a pan of simmering water or simply use your microwave - just be sure to microwave for 30-60 seconds at a time, take the bowl out and stir, then microwave/stir some more until everything is melted
  • Once your base is melted and mixed, remove from heat and add 10-20 drops of peppermint oil (or other oil of your choice! Sweet almond oil, orange blossom, lavender, lime, coconut, and vanilla are all great options. Just be sure to use a fragrance/extract that is cosmetic grade and safe for lips!)
  • Line up your lip balm tubes or tins and using a pipette, transfer the lip balm base to the containers filling right below the top edge
  • Once the base has cooled, take the pipette and top off the container to cover any sunken in areas that have settled (this happens especially on lip balm tubes)
  • Let them cool for a few hours until they are firm and that's it!
