If there’s one lip balm I’d love to eat it’s this one. It’s scent is so beautiful that I just have to smell the balm every time I’m going to use it and I don’t seem to get tired of it. If you like the smell of honey, too, and if you want a lip balm that is 100 % natural, let’s make the natural honey lip balm together.
- 7 g of virgin beeswax
- 3 g of raspberry oil
- 12 g of wheat sprout oil
- 7 g of sweet almond oil
- 6 lip balm containers
The virgin beeswax gives the lip balm the necessary solidity and the marvellous honey scent. Sweet almond oil has a softening effect and it’s full of vitamins. Wheat sprout oil provides vitamin E and elasticity. Raspberry oil is also full of vitamin E and protects the lips especially from the effects of winter temperatures.
How to make the natural honey lip balm
As always, before you start desinfect all the tools.
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and place the bowl in a water bath until the ingredients melt. Make sure the water doesn’t find its way into the bowl!
Stir the mixture a little and very carefully, you don’t want to stir fast and make bubbles. When everything is melted, switch off the stove and fill the lip balm containers. I find the syringe to be the best tool for this.
When the balm becomes solid, the center will lower and there will be a little hole. With these amounts you’ll be left with a little more to use and you can fill the containers some more to even the lip balm.
Put the finished lip balms in the fridge and your natural honey lip balm is ready to use!
