Homemade Lip Balm using Essential Oils (more tips from Harvest Your Health Bundle Sale)


NOTE: This offer is no longer available.

If you saw my post on Monday and the other one on Wednesday, you know that I am helping promote the 'Harvest You Health' bundle sale.  I thought it would be fun to share a couple of recipes and pointers from some of the books.  Today I wanted to share a little bit from some of the non-cookbook ebooks.  If you follow my blog at all, you know my love for essential oils.  I've been on this path toward natural living, and I still have a ways to go.  Well, there are quite a few books I'm so excited about, that will help me on my journey, these include: Salve made Simple, My Buttered Life (4 books total), Natural Cleaning, Simple Scrubs to Make & Give, Homemade Health and Beauty, and The Holistic Mama's Guide to Homemade Skin Care.  It's a lot of helpful books, isn't it?  I now have so many ideas for shampoos, deodorants, face cleansers, lip balms, salves for wounds, and more.  To say I'm excited about these books is an understatement.

I thought I'd share one recipe from My Buttered Life: Gift Edition by Renee Harris, lip balm. It's simple and would make a fantastic gift or to just have on hand for those winter months, I know my family goes through a lot of lip balm in the winter, so I'm very happy I now have this recipe on hand. She also has a youtube video on how to make the lip balm:

Flavored Lip Balm
by Renee Harris

1 oz Beeswax
1 oz Shea butter
1 oz coconut oil (a little more during cooler months)
3/4 teaspoon essential oil of choice
18-20 lip balm tubes

Place beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil in double boiler.

Melt and stir with a wooden skewer.  Drop a small amount for testing on foil or wax paper. Once cool, test on lips.  If it's difficult to apply to lips, melt in a bit more coconut oil and repeat this step.

Remove from heat, wait a few minutes, and add essential oil(s).

Stir with wooden skewer and then drop liquid into lip balm tubes using a medicine dropper.
