Crafternoon – DIY Peppermint Lip Balm

lip balm cover

What you will need:

2 TBSP beeswax
2 TBSP coconut oil
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
chunk of lipstick (A lot goes a little way)
1/2 tsp. of shimmer powder (Optional.. but lets be real, essential.)
10 drops of essentail oil (I used peppermint because it gives your lips that minty tingling feeling)

Melt everything except the essential oil in a double boiler (A pot on top of another pot with boiling water underneath) until it is all completely melted.

Make sure not to overheat (Beeswax will ignite if it gets too hot). Stir with something that you can throw away, I used a bamboo skewer.

Remove from heat and add essential oil. Use a syringe or pipette dropper to fill up your lip balm containers. I bought mine off Ebay you can also get them from craft stores.

Time taken to make: 10 minutes
