As I begin to phase out of the small business world of making all natural skin care products, I thought I’d s l o w l y start sharing some of my best recipes. They’re too good to retire and while I plan on giving a select few away to my fellow mompreneur in the same business, I’ve chosen a few to share here.
My lip balm is one of my biggest sellers. It’s smooth without being waxy, hydrating without becoming addicting (damn you Chapstick!), longlasting and safe for everyone to use, even your little if she/he happens to get into it like mine tends to do!
3 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP + 1 tsp Beeswax
1 generous TBSP Avocado Butter (the secret ingredient to making it the best!) You can order it online here
Add any essential oils you like for flavour. I like vanilla mint, pink grapefruit etc.
In a double boiler or simply a metal bowl set on top of a pot with about an inch of boiling water in it, add all ingredients except flavour/scent. When everything has melted, stir and add in EO’s. Give a good sniff test to see if that meets your desire and pour into lip balm vessels. Voila!
SO. FREAKING. GOOD.
