Homemade Lip Balm

Hope you all had a great weekend! I for one did until...yesterday...I woke up with my head splitting and my leg hurting and today...my head is still throbbing but not splitting.  I did however accomplish some organizing goals and managed to make my own lip balm....which I ADORE!

I will be having some of my friends test it to see how they like it...I used beeswax, coconut oil and honey with some essential oil that can be used on body products...its important that you don't use essential oils that are made for candles in your soap and beauty products....not a good idea!

Hope you all have a GREAT day...this week I will be making a tri colored soap and a different lip balm!

 You could use lipstick to color it...but I like the white look to it!

  1. Where did you get those cute little tins for your lip balm? I would love to know your recipe for the lip balm as well. I made some a while back, but it called for aloe vera, vaseline and coconut oil. Yours sounds much better:o) Just found your blog and thinks it's pretty awesome. I have been thinking about getting into soap making, but wasn't sure if it would be worth the investment. It seems like you really love doing it. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
