Cranberry Lip Balm
The holidays are upon us, and it’s a cheerful time of year! One of the most fun parts of the holidays is gift giving. Sometimes, you can find a gift at a store for someone. However, it is extra special to have a gift hand made by you for the person you are thinking about.
Give your favorite people the gift of soft, supple lips this holiday season. A rich mixture of Shea and Cocoa Butter moisturizes and heals dry, chapped, or damaged lips. Note: We recommend keeping this soft lip balm in small jars instead of lip balm tubes. If you want to use tubes, just double the amount of beeswax you include.
1 tablespoon each of:
5 drops of cranberry fragrance (or 25 drops of spearmint or peppermint essential oil)
1 teaspoon of pink eatable glitter (used to decorate cakes) or mica powder
Using a double boiler, melt the beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, and castor oil.
Continue to stir until everything is melted, then take off of the heat.
Wait about fifteen minutes for the mixture to cool off, but not too long to let the beeswax harden. Then, add the fragrance or essential oil and your coloring agent (eatable glitter or mica powder). Stir well.
Pour the mixture into your lip balm containers, let it completely cool off and harden for three hours, and voila! Your lip balm is ready.
