Tired of paying for lip balm? Why not make your own?
Licensed esthetician and host of Ulive's "EstheKitchen" Jessica Bartley shows us how to do just that … in your own kitchen!
Not only is it super simple and inexpensive, it makes for a great gift!
Here's what you'll need:
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil
- 3 tablespoons beeswax (which you can find at any craft store or Etsy.com)
- 1 vitamin E capsule
- Scented essential oil (Jessica uses peppermint)
Step 1: Combine olive oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and vitamin E in a microwaveable jar. (Use a pin to puncture the vitamin E capsule)
Step 2: Microwave jar for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until contents are melted. Remove from microwave.
Step 3: Add 15 drops essential oil and stir to combine.
Step 4: Pour into lip balm tubes or recycled mint tins. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
And that's all there is to it!
Watch the video above and never buy another tube of lip balm again.
