DIY : Make Your Own Nourishing Lip Balm

I have used :

1. Coconut oil 1/2 tsp
2. Honey 1tsp
3. Cocoa butter 1/2 tsp
4. Beeswax beads 1tsp
5. Saffron 2-3 strands

\Add the Cocoa butter & the Coconut oil to the Beeswax beads\

\Melt them together for about 45secs in the microwave or whatever duration is appropriate depending on your microwave settings\

\Once molten add a teaspoon of honey. Mix well\

\Add saffron\

\Now pour it into a clean container. I used an old container from Lush, that I had brought samples in. You could also use an empty Altoids container\

\Let it solidify\

\Now rub your finger tip into it and apply\

During winter, a lip balm is the key to survival. I can in fact take it to the next level of paranoia. I have one at every corner of my little apartment. So that when I am in need I can quickly reach out for one. Naturally, I need lots of them, and making them at home is the most cost effective way to do it. This container, for someone like me would last at least for 4 weeks!

please do leave behind your comment, suggestion, insights, love notes... I am listening.
