Lip Balm

Harsh, cold winters can be very hard on the skin. This winter has been exceptionally cold in Canada. A good lip balm is a must to protect our lips from the elements and from becoming chapped and sore. If you are like me you will want a natural product, especially when you are applying it to your mouth with the high likelihood that you will be ingesting it. This is a great and easy recipe for a natural lip balm. Be creative and experiment with different flavours.

1 ounce beeswax
1 ounce coconut oil
½ ounce shea butter
½ ounce cocoa butter
30 drops doTERRA Essential Oil or blend of oils.  Wild Orange, Peppermint, Wintergreen are great choices.

    1. Line up empty containers. If using a lip balm stick, make sure it has been twisted down.
    2. Measure butters and oils and place in glass jar.
    3. Fill a large saucepan with 1–1 ½ inches of water and bring to a boil.
    4. Once the water is boiling, add a glass jar to the center of saucepan.
    5. Stir every few minutes until ingredients are melted and combined.
    6. Once wax is melted, remove from heat and let sit 3 minutes then add essential oils.
    7. Pour mixture into lip balm containers and let cool.
Tip: If you want a harder lip balm, add an additional ½ ounce of beeswax. For an even softer lip balm, add an additional ½ ounce of coconut oil.
