Homemade lip balm – Handmade by Livia

Back in October I went to Homemade Beauty Products Workshop organised by Midas Touch Crafts and got inspired by it to make some beauty products myself. The workshop covered how to make hairspray, lip balm and scrub, and body scrub. Out of all of those I decided lip balm was the easiest and started to look up recipes online as I didn’t particularly like the contents we used at the workshop.

As the obsession suggests, I like lavender so I definitely wanted a recipe including lavender essential oil. I found one that had very simple ingredients:

  • Lavender and peppermint essential oil
  • Beeswax
  • Shea butter
  • Coconut oil

All the ingredients including tins are purchased from Amazon or eBay and I got the stickers made on Instantprint.co.uk. Lots of people received them as presents this Christmas. My husband claims his lips are always dry and agreed to be my guinea pig for testing the first batch. He approved and now I’ve made a whole batch for him too ;). I store them in the fridge. As a thank you, he took a few snaps of my products (“styled” by me).
