Lip balm is always something that I carry around because I always have dry or chapped lips, no matter how many times I apply it. Usually I end up losing it eventually and then I have to go out and buy another one, and it can get costly. Instead, here is a way to make lip balm and the best part is that I can make more than one so even if I lose one, I still have more! Also, it’s a great gift for someone as well. Here is how to make your own DIY lip balm!
- 2 tablespoons of white beeswax pellets
- 4 tablespoons of sunflower oil
- Few drops of strawberry flavor oil
- Lipstick shavings (color that you want)
First you place the beeswax pellets and the sunflower oil in a microwavable bowl.
Heat it on low to medium heat until the beeswax pellets have melted and stir it with a metal spoon.
Gradually start adding the lipstick shavings. You can choose a color, but since it is strawberry flavored, a pink color would make the most sense.
Stir the mixture with a metal spoon and continue to slowly add the shavings until you reach the shade you want.
Using a clean pipette, transfer the lip balm to small pots or whatever container you’d like to put them in.
Torie Jayne, where I got the inspiration from, also has a great way of packaging the lip gloss for gifts and other reasons.
