After making the Rosemary Lip cum face Scrub for my lovely cousins, I was asked to make a batch of lip balm which is highly nourishing and moisturizing to those luscious lips of ours. So I browsed through a lot of recipes of net for various flavors and types. I also went through the ingredient list of a few commercial lip balms like Burts & Bee’s, Forrest Essential etc to see what all they have.
- 1 tbsp Cocoa Butter
- 2 tbsp Sunflower Oil
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1/2 tbsp Beeswax
- Dried Rose Petal
- Rose Petal powder
- 15 drops of Rose Absolute Essential Oil
- 2-3 drops of vitamin E Oil (optional)
- Melt Beeswax in a double pot boiler or microwave
- Add Melted cocoa butter to it.
- Now add Sunflower & Olive oil
- Add rose petals and lil rose petal powder for added decoration
- Now let it cool for 2-3 minutes, now add vitamin E oil and Essential oils
- Pour the product in small containers
- Let them solidify at room temperature
Here’s your own home made Lip balm is ready to use.
