New & Improved Lip Balm

lipbalmAfter finding another recipe for lip balm, I decided to try it out and make two batches, one using lavender essential oil and the other using peppermint essential oil. I also bought some lip balm tubes for easier application and am just ecstatic with the results!

I love this lip balm! With the added ingredients of cocoa butter and vitamin E oil it is very moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling luxuriously soft. Both the peppermint and lavender smell equally wonderful. I use the lavender at night before bed and the peppermint during the day for a little pick-me-up.

Ingredients: sunflower oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, peppermint or lavender essential oil, vitamin E oil.

Lavender Lip Balm

Lavender Lip Balm

I just ran out of my last stick of Chapstick, so it was time to make a replacement. Fortunately I already had all of the ingredients at hand so I was ready to go without any shopping and it was incredibly easy to make. Once again I make use of my favorite essential oil. Every time I apply some lip balm I smell the calming scent of lavender and a wave of relaxation washes over me.

Ingredients: coconut oil, beeswax, lavender essential oil.
