This DIY All Natural Lip Balm Makes for a Great Gift

Make your own DIY lip balm with all natural ingredients.

lip balmThe DIY lip balm makes for a great gift for family and friends and is super simple to make. Take eight tablespoons coconut oil, three tablespoons beeswax and one-and-half tablespoon honey and place in a double boiler. Alternatively, take a bowl and place it on top of a saucepan with boiling water. Heat gradually until all the ingredients have melted. Please note that beeswax does take a while to melt – so be patient and ensure all the ingredients have mixed completely. Remove the mixture from the heat and add around thirty drops of essential oil of your choice. If you want to add color, add half a stick of natural lipstick like Jane Iredale. Stir and ensure the mixture blends. Place the bowl in a bigger bowl filled with ice water. Stir quickly until the mixture becomes thicker. Pour the mixture into lip balm containers and place the covers on. Let it sit to cool.
