Home Made Lip Balm Recipe

Most people nowadays prefer All Natural Cosmetics since it is the safest way not to damage skin and for those environmentalist, this is one great way in utilizing Nature’s Gift. Let’s try doing our own Lip Balm at home. Apart from it’s easy to do, making your own cosmetics is also a great gift idea. Talking about Personal Touch :).

So anyway, before I give you the ingredients, remember that because we are making a lip balm, it only requires small quantities of ingredients we need to find a VERY small pan to use for melting. Often using the double boiler method is a good solution.

Find some mini pots to use for filling with lip balm–you can find these at craft stores or through suppliers of home remedy/natural products. And if you want to add a little tingle to your lip balm, try SMALL amounts of menthol or tea tree oil. Below are three recipes of homemade lip balms for you to choose.
