Lime Lip Balm

When I shared these Lime Lip Balm photos on my personal Facebook profile, I had friends and family asking if they could buy some of them. I told them “no, but I’ll give you some and show you how to make them yourselves!”. I’m not in the business of selling beauty products. I’d rather make them for personal use and then show you how to make them at home. It’s not very hard at all!

    I melted the ingredients in a glass Pyrex bowl over a pot of water on the stove at medium heat. You don’t want your ingredients to burn so this is the best way to do it. The beeswax and cocoa butter took the longest to melt completely. You could add those first if you want and give them a head start. I put all of mine in at the same time though and it turned out fine.

    After you pour them into the containers, let them sit for at least one hour to cool off. Then put the lid on and apply a pretty label. I used my Brother P-Touch label maker to make these ones.

    I love the fresh lime scent and how soft it made my lips feel. I gave a bunch away to my friends and family because there is no way I’ll use that much lip balm in the next few months! To make less lip balm, just halve the recipe so you don’t have as much leftover.

    Have you ever made your own lip balm?

    1. I made chocolate one year. But, lime sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing at this week’s Inspiration Spotlight party. See you again soon. Pinned & shared.

    2. I’ve been wanting to make my own lip balm for sooo long now! I’m definitely going to try your tutorial, it seems quite easy and with natural ingredients – great! 🙂 Also, I’m thrilled to let you know that you have been featured again this week at the Friday Favorites linky party!!

    3. Can I use lemon essential oil instead?

    4. Lime sounds delicious but I have a serious negative reaction to coconut favor/scent after too many summers (and in Las Vegas “summer” lasts a long time) with my sister soaked in various coconut lotions, sun tan oils, etc. 
      Any suggestions for replacing it?
      Thanks
