A DIY Natural Lip Care Recipe for Homemade Chocolate Mint Lip Balm.
My journey to find an effective natural lip balm that nourishes my lips, rather than makes them dry, has taken years. Yes, years. Why is it so hard to find a safe natural lip balm that deeply moisturizes dry lips?
Did you know that you can make homemade lip balm? And it’s definitely cheaper than buying it in stores or online.
One of the best things about homemade lip balm recipes is that you can make these natural lip care products for your friends and family. And that’s especially great at Christmas. These natural lip balms are perfect stocking stuffers, or small presents when you want to gift a friend something but not spend too much.
When they find out that you made it at home, your friends and family will absolutely love your gift even more!
So, are you wondering how to make lip balm at home with natural ingredients?
Ask no more!
This is the simple DIY recipe for lip balm with beeswax and coconut oil, two deeply nourishing and moisturizing natural ingredients. And the cocoa butter is great for natural skin care, too!
You can customize your lip balm tubes depending on your preference. Traditional lip balm tubes come in round and oval shapes, as well as colored lip balm tubes. Or, pour the homemade lip balm into lip balm pots to apply with your finger or lip brush rather than in a twist-up tube.
