What you will need to make the Lemon Lip Balm:

To make the lip balm you will need:

1/2 oz Beeswax (this one is high quality cosmetic grade)
1/4 oz Shea Butter (this one is USDA organic pure)
1/2 oz Coconut Oil (this is a USDA organic one)
1/4 oz Cocoa Butter (this is a pure organic one)
12-15 drops Lemon Essential Oil (make sure you are using food grade essential oil, so it is safe to place on your lips – such as this one)

Small jars or tubes (jars are easier to fill) or you can use small metal containers (with lids)

As you are making a beauty product that you will be placing on your body, I always recommend buying and using organic grade ingredients as much as possible.

Many essential oils can be harmful if used inappropriately, therefore always make sure you are using a food grade essential oil, or one that states it is approved for cosmetic use.

Many of the supplies that you purchase can be used time and time again for many different beauty and body products.

 

How to Make Lemon Lip Balm

Fill a saucepan with about 2 inches of water. Place the Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter into a glass container, such as a glass measuring jug. Set the glass container full of the ingredients down inside the saucepan. Boil the water. As the water is heating stir the ingredients inside the glass measuring jug to melt them.

Be very careful not to burn yourself during this step.

Remove the glass container from the saucepan (caution it will be hot so make sure you use an oven mitt or similar)

Add 12-15 drops Lemon essential oil to the mixture. Stir well.

Pour the mixture into the glass jars, tubes or containers.

Let the mixture cool down and harden inside the jars.

You now have wonderful gorgeous Lemon lip balm! (just try not to eat it – it smells so good!).
