Prepare yourself (and your lips) for the dreamiest chapstick!.. Ever! And, it’s so easy to make in your own kitchen! And, its cheap! Yea! Another Win! Win! Win! Seriously, this is so easy, and you’re going to love it! But, this is not a project for kids. Hot oil on skin = a LOT of pain. So, for adults, only.
Awesome, ok, time’s a wasting, so lets do this! I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs, The Elliott Homestead. I did tweak it just a tad.
What you need:
2 Tablespoons of organic coconut oil (I bought mine here)
3 Tablespoons of organic shea butter (Need some? Get it here)
2 drops each of dōTERRA Lavender and Peppermint essential oil**
1 Tablespoons of bees wax (I got mine from my hubby’s bee’s, but here is a link where you can purchase it)
1 Tablespoon of honey
1 medicine dropper or syringe
**Side note, but super important. Buying essential oils from Walmart & Amazon is dangerous. There is no way to ensure that the oils you are purchasing are pure, free of impurities, and dangerous synthetics. I experienced this personally when I bought several brands of EO’s (including dōTERRA) from Amazon, The smell and viscosity of the oil was very different from the real dōTERRA oil. I experienced dizziness with the Amazon bought oil, which I do not experience with the same oil bought from dōTERRA.
I encourage you to do your own research into buying essential oils. This is an excellent (non brand biased) site that will provide you with loads of information! Don’t put your families health at risk. Buy directly from the brand!
Several drops of an essential oil of choice. I used lavender (calming) and peppermint (soothing). Totally yummy!
12 chapstick containers (you can purchase them here)
I feel like I need to add some type of disclaimer that I have no affilation to amazon.com in any way, but for a girl without a Tarjay, it’s the next best thing. Love it!
Melt the beeswax, then add the coconut oil and shea butter. Everything will melt in 1-2 minutes.
Add a few drops of essential oil and the honey. Take the mixture off of the heat and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
Use a medicine dropper to put the melted oil into your chapstick containers.
This can get messy, so take your time and be careful. The mixture will shrink and solidify in several minutes. You can top off each container as it cools.
Voila! You have just made homemade, deliciously organic lip balm! Go you! Now go make your lips happy!
