Lipbalm seems to be one of those things that people hoard, myself included. I can never resist a pretty pot or unusual smell. That’s probably why i’ve wanted to make my own for so long. Here’s an incredibly simple recipe and method. These will last up to 2 years so make up a batch and keep them on hand for quick gifts, party favours, stocking fillers, teacher gifts, fundraising, anything you like!
Makes: 20 (easily halved or quartered)
You can find all of these ingredients online really easily. This is a great website, they even sell their own pre-packaged kits.
Quick warning: You’re free to use these lipbalms yourself (obviously!) or gift to other people, but if you’re hoping to sell them, as with all cosmetics, you need to have a safety certificate. Some companies sell pre-certified mixtures that you can melt down and re-package to sell, but I think that kind of takes all the fun out of it.
How easy was that? Have fun mixing up crazy flavours!
