I love not having chapped lips in the winter...but I don't like regular lip balm from the store. I know their are alot of natural choices out there but most of them have sunflower oil. (And I just happen to be allergic!)
It turns out that it's really easy to make your own though! It only takes a few ingredients and you can "flavor" it any scent you want! I love vanilla scented anything so I was happy to find a vanilla essential oil on Amazon to use. It didn't mix in as well as I wanted but it still scented the lip balm.
So here's all you need to make a batch of at least 6-8 lip balms depending on the size of the containers you have to put them in.
Vanilla Lip Balm
Melt together the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil. Add in the drops of essential oil depending on how strongly you want it flavored. (Or you don't have to add any!) I only added about 12 drops to mine.
Use an eye dropper while the liquid is still hot and fill your containers. If it starts to cool before you finish just heat it back up again to the liquid state.
Remember that in warm temperatures this lip balm might melt so keep it in a cool place or in the fridge if you have to. Enjoy!
