Srubby Sweet Lip Balm

This is for the dry winter lips and the quick lip fix just before a lipstick. It’s a lip scrub, a lip balm and a lip primer all in one.

The Recipe White/Yellow beeswax 0.7oz Sweet Almond Oil 1.3oz Raw Unrefined Shea Butter 1oz White Sugar 2.5oz Vitamin E 0.2oz Sliver Glitter (optional) Flavour Oil 6ml Glass bowls Mixing Spoons Lip Pots/Containers/Jars   How To Measure out all ingredients needed. Combine the oil and beeswax.  Melt in a double boiler or microwave. I used the microwave, and it took 2 minutes in total for the wax to melt into the oil at 30 seconds interval. While the wax and oil are still melting, add the glitter to your sugar and mix while it’s still dry. This allows for an even distribution of the glitter. When the oil and beeswax have melted, add the Shea butter. The heat from the oil will melt the Shea butter, also add the vitamin e oil and flavour oil. …

Strawberry Lip Balm

First comes freshly scrubbed lips then comes a moisturizing lip balm.

Olive Rose Lip Balm

Hello everyone, I know a lot recipes of lip balm are all around, but I am putting a twist on this by adding olive butter and rose geranium essential oil. Olive butter is an amazing emollient and contains antioxidants, it is very light and easy to spread on the surface of the skin. If you are not too keen on using Shea butter, olive butter is a good alternative and softer one too. Rose geranium essential oil is a sweet floral scent oil that tends to relax the body and mind. It is also a cheaper alternative to rose oil. More information on rose geranium essential oil here http://www.experience-essential-oils.com/geranium-essential-oil.html What you will need: Beeswax (20g) Cocoa Butter (24g) Shea Butter (20g) Avocado Oil (5g) Almond Oil (5g) Rose Petals Vitamin E (2 drops) Rose Geranium (10 drops) Melt your beeswax and cocoa butter  in a double boiler or microwave oven, when they both melted down, add your Shea butter and olive butter and let the heat of the wax and cocoa butter melt the Shea …
