how to make best lip balm,homemade lip balm,lip balm recipe
This morning I could finally make my homemade lip balm. In the previous post I told you already that I bought 10 sticks to make my own lip balm. I have long been searching, searching for information and and above all trying to find the ingredients. Obviously there are many shops online on-line that sell them, but did not want to buy large quantities without knowing the outcome. And after much looking and looking I finally found a shop in Barcelona that had everything I wanted, sell in bulk and small quantities so I bought everything I needed and this morning I have started to work.
Homemade lip balm recipes there are a few. In fact when I bought the sticks Joanne gave me several different recipes, that I will go little by little. But he had seen a recipe for some time and this is the one I chose.
I use lip balm lot especially in winter, so this morning when I got my own balm I felt very happy, because from now on I will be able to create the lip balm you want. It is fantastic.
Ingredients and amounts:
20 grams of sweet almond oil
10 grams of shea butter
10 grams of cocoa butter
10 grams of natural beeswax
Step 1: Put warm water bath beeswax until melted
Step 2: Once the wax melted, add shea butter and cocoa butter
Step 3: Once deterrida the above mixture, add the almond oil and mix.
Step 4: Fill the pots or sticks that you go to use and is already
I put this photo so you can see the color and texture. If you like the lip balm with a softer texture you can take less beeswax, and if you can put more consistent preferis more beeswax. With these quantities have come to me perfect texture.
With these quantities that I said I filled 5 sticks and small jar.
Why these ingredients to lip balm?
Cocoa butter is obtained from cocoa bean roasting. And it’s perfect for a lip balm that has emollient and soothing, which is excellent for treating dry, rough skin.
Shea butter is obtained from the seeds of a tree proviniente West Africa.
This butter is a natural cell regenerator. It acts by coating the skin with a film that prevents dehydration and protects from external aggressions. Also be used in hair and body.
