In the previous article, we talked about the fun of homemade natural perfume and the simple steps required to produce your own bottle. Sticking with the topic of homemade personal beauty products, we will in this article teach you the basic craft for making a homemade Organic lip balm.
From summer to winter, lip balms are required all year around to help protect your lips from the dry cold winter months and the harsh summer heat. Unfortunately, a lot of commercial lip balms found in chemist and shops are petroleum based, and this ingredient should be avoided due to its links to cancer, reproductive damage, immune system toxicity, endocrine disruption and neuro-toxicity.
The beauty of making your own lip balm is that you’ll know that it’s free from petroleum jelly, artificial colours, artificial flavouring, preservatives and other questionable ingredients. What you’ll be using in replacement are natural organic ingredients such as beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, honey…… the list is endless.
