In my pre-mommy days I was a serious shimmery lip gloss user. It didn’t have to be a wild color or filled with glitter, maybe just a tint and a bit glossy. It left me feeling put-together an honestly, rather lady like.

Over time, I’ve grown sensitive to just about all chemical fragrances and additives. With lip gloss, this expanded to the way they would taste until finally I couldn’t bring myself to use even things labeled as natural. Luckily, with a little experimentation, I started developing my own wonderful homemade lip balm recipes, and I wanted to share one of my favorites, this easy-to-make lemongrass lip balm recipe.

Lemongrass lip balm

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon organic beeswax
½ teaspoon vitamin E oil
5-10 drops lemongrass essential oil (or your favorite oil)


Small containers and a medicine dispenser/dropper (we have a bunch of these left over from vitamins and medicines and they work super for this!


Directions:

The balm will start to harden fairly quickly so you’ll definitely want to make sure you have everything out before starting the project.  Create a double boiler with a small pot of water and a heat safe dish on top.  Melt down the beeswax and coconut oil slowly but completely.  Remove from the heat and add in the vitamin e oil and essential oil, stir thoroughly and then quickly start to fill the containers.  Let rest while they set up and harden, this will likely only take 5 to 10 minutes depending on the size of your containers.
