Personal care products are one of those things that can be intimidating to make at home. Sure, I can whip up a loaf of bread or some spaghetti sauce in no time and without much thought, but what about shampoo? Homemade lotion or deodorant? Or lip balm?
On the surface, a lot of these items seem like they would be hard to make or that the ingredients may not be readily available. However, I have discovered that this is just not true.
I recently made lip balm, and not only was it easy, I think it came out nicer than some types sold at the store, and I know exactly what ingredients were used in making it. Further, it is so customizable that I plan to do another batch that is softer and tinted!
Homemade Lip Balm
1 tbsp coconut oil (I use this.)
1 tbsp beeswax (I use this.)
1 tsp olive oil
1/8 tsp peppermint extract **
Some type of container to hold the lip balm (These are very similar to the ones I use.)
