Winter Heal and Protect Lip Balm Recipe

Keep lips looking and feeling great with this heal and protect winter lip balm recipe. Natural ingredients come together to to help keep lips moisturized to protect against chapping while a tiny hint of sheer color lends lips a healthy glow.

Ingredients:

.25 oz. grape seed oil
.15 oz. sunflower oil
.1 oz. refined (76 melt point) coconut oil
.2 oz. beeswax
.05 oz. lanolin
1/4 teaspoon alkanet root powder
10 drops spearmint essential oil
6 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax. Place in double boiler or in a small one cup glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power until the beeswax has melted fully.

Now weigh out the lanolin and coconut oil and mix into the melted beeswax. You may need to heat the mixture again so all of the ingredients are liquified.

Measure out the alkanet powder with a measuring spoon and stir into the hot melted beeswax, lanolin and coconut oil. (This winter lip balm recipe, while it looks dark, actually goes on very sheer with just a tiny hint of red. For darker color use more alkanet root powder. Alternately you may omit it all together if you want a completely clear product.)

Next, weigh the grape seed and sunflower oils and stir into the other ingredients.



Use a dropper or transfer pipette to add the essential oils. Give one final stir then pour into empty lip balm tubes. Allow to cool completely then decorate your tubes as desired. (I used this clip art from Citrus & Mint.)

This heal and protect winter lip balm recipe yields five lip balms. To use simply apply to lips as desired.
