Guest and Giveaway: Homemade Lip Balm and Body Balm

The following is a guest post from Joanna at Be Creative Mommy

I love homemade cosmetics, so I do it quite often.The ingredients are simple and it really doesn’t take much time.

I love that all the ingredients are completely natural and good for me. The beeswax provides a tiny bit of sun protection naturally { not replace a sunscreen }. The rest of the ingredients are perfect for dry skin.

what you'll need for BODY BALM
  • 0.5 %  coconut butter
  • 95 %  shea butter
  • 4.5 % cocoa butter
  • containers or glass jar
what you'll need for LIP BALM
  • 0.3 %  almond oil
  • 0.2 % coconut butter
  • 55 %  shea butter
  • 4.5 % cocoa butter
  • 40 % beeswax
  • containers or glass jar
  Play with the ingredients to get what you want.

What you do:
  1. Grate your beeswax.
  2. Place a glass bowl in a pan filled with 3 - 6.5 cm of water and heat on medium. 
  3. Add shea butter, cocoa butter, almond oil, coconut butter, beeswax.
  4. Melt until all the beeswax flakes are melted. Stir with a wooden spoon that you will only use for making balm.
  5. Add almond oil.
  6. Pour into containers {I bought containers in craft shop} 

Do the same. According to me, balm in these proportions are great for the face, hands and feet. If you want to used the lotion easier to add more coconut butter.
