Stella was very fortunate with all the gifts she received for Christmas. One of her gifts was a book with recipes on how to make our own bath and body products! With it being winter – Stella tends to get very chapped lips – probably would help if she did not lick her lips all the time -but it is what it is! Looking through the book we came across a recipe to make your own lip balm – so – of course – we had to give it a try!
Moisturizing Lip Balm (thanks EcoBeauty by Lauren Cox)
(to make 3 oz.)
6 tsp beeswax
6 tsp coconut oil
3/4 tsp vitamin E oil
3/4 tsp vanilla
Glass containers (I washed and re-used the jar for my eye and face cream)
1. Place a glass measuring cup in a pan with several inches of water.
2. Measure the beeswax, coconut oil and vitamin E oil and place in the measuring cup. Turn the burner on medium-low and melt the ingredients – stir to help it along.
3. When all is melted turn the heat off and add the vanilla and stir until well mixed.
4. Pour into containers and allow to cool completely.
Stella put some on and wanted to eat it! It is so creamy and feels so good and the smell is wonderful! Enjoy!
