How do you make your own lip balm from scratch? Well now you’re going to find out.
What You’ll Need
- Your EOS/Lip Balm container
- Olive oil or Coconut oil
- Flavouring of your choice (optional)
- Fragrance of your choice (optional)
- Colour lipstick or crayon of your choice
- Pot filled with water
- Teaspoon to measure
- A small heat proof container (e.g. glass bowl or metal measuring cup)
Light your cooking and put it on low heat. Put your pot of water on it so it can heat up slowly. Cut a tablespoon of beeswax and put it into your small heat proof container. Add 4-5 teaspoons of olive oil or coconut oil
Place your small heat proof container into the pot of hot water and stir your mixture until melted. Add in half a teaspoon of your fragrance and when that’s all been mixed in, add in a little bit of your colour crayon or lipstick and stir until it has melted and your mixture has become a consistent and rich colour.
Pour your melted mixture into your empty EOS container until the mixture has covered the grate. Put the lid back onto your EOS container, turn it upside down and pop it in the freezer. After 1 hour, take your lip balm out of the freezer and unscrew the lid slowly to reveal your new EOS Lip Balm
