  • Delune's Pure Essential Oils of your choice
  • Small lip balm containers or tubes
  • Double boiler or microwave-safe bowl

Choosing the Right Essential Oils:

When selecting essential oils for your homemade lip balm, consider scents that are pleasant, soothing, and have beneficial properties for the delicate skin of your lips. Here are a few popular options to inspire you:

  • Peppermint: Cooling, refreshing, and invigorating
  • Lavender: Calming, soothing, and gentle
  • Sweet Orange: Uplifting, energizing, and bright
  • Rose: Nourishing, hydrating, and romantic

Experiment with different combinations of Delune's Pure Essential Oils to create your perfect lip balm scent.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. In a double boiler or a microwave-safe bowl, melt 2 tablespoons of beeswax pellets (or grated beeswax), 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon of shea butter or cocoa butter.

  2. Once the ingredients have melted and combined, remove the mixture from heat.

  3. Add 10-20 drops of your chosen Delune's Pure Essential Oils to the melted mixture. If you're using a blend of oils, divide the total number of drops between them. For example, if you're using two oils, you might add 5-10 drops of each.

  4. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, ensuring the essential oils are evenly distributed throughout the lip balm mixture.

  5. Carefully pour the liquid lip balm into small lip balm containers or tubes, and allow it to cool and harden completely.

Tips for Usage and Application:

  • Apply your homemade lip balm to your lips as needed for hydration and nourishment.
  • Customize your lip balm by adding natural colorants like beetroot powder or cocoa powder, or by experimenting with different essential oil blends.
  • Homemade lip balm makes a thoughtful and personalized gift for friends and family.

Safety Precautions:

  • Keep the homemade lip balm out of reach of children and pets.
  • Use caution when using essential oils around pregnant women or individuals with allergies.
