How to Make Your Own Lip Balm
I have always wanted to make my own lip balm, probably because I’m obsessed with it. I have lip balm in every purse, every bathroom, and in my car. I think it’s an addiction. The kits I have seen in the past look so fun, but for some reason I’ve never pulled the plug and bought one. Thanks to Skinny Cow and my Spa Night Mission, I was able to try a make tour own lip balm kit from Herban and Crafts. Here’s how I made it.
Materials: (Provided in your kit)
- Cocoa Butter
- Sunflower Oil
- Spearmint Essential Oil
- Pyrex Measuring Cup
- Metal Spoon
- Paper Towels
- Lip Balm Tins (Provided in your kit)
First I put water in my saucepan and placed the measuring cup inside. I put the beeswax, cocoa butter, and sun flower oil in the cup.
I allowed the mixture to heat and melt.
Once it melted, I removed it from the stovetop and added my essential oil, mixing it with my spoon. I poured it into the metal containers.
I decided to make my own personalized labels. I used scrapbook paper, a circle cutter, double sided tape, and monogram stickers. Here are some after photos.
I have to admit, that I loved making these and I didn’t realize how easy it was. Thank you to my sponsor, Skinny Cow for providing me with this kit! I loved it!
Those are ADORABLE, Dinah! They would make such great gifts for Christmas! Great job 🙂
