A complete novice when it comes to making homemade beauty products? This easy coconut oil lip balm recipe has just three ingredients!
Making your own products is a handy skill to have if you’ve committed to a zero waste lifestyle as all of the ingredients can be sourced from bulk stores or comes in glass packaging.
Here’s our super easy zero waste coconut oil lip balm recipe.
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp beeswax
- 1 tsp certified organic extra virgin olive oil
You can add a few drops of an essential oil of your choosing, such as peppermint, should you wish.
Combine the coconut oil, beeswax and olive oil together and heat in a double boiler over low heat. If you don’t have a double boiler you can simply place a smaller saucepan in a larger one like here.
Watch as the beeswax and oils melt together, stir occasionally.
Once completely melted mix well and pour straight into a small glass pot.
Let it cool before using or refrigerate to speed up the process.
