DIY Christmas Presents: Organic Beeswax Lipbalm
If you are anything like me, you also walk through winter with seriously chapped lips, looking like sausages someone left them on the grill for too long. Well, no more!
And also: No more buying stupid jumble for acquaintances/work colleagues/distant cousins who invite you last-minute to a Christmas party. Here's the perfect little prezzie for them!
Organic Beeswax Lipbalm
85g organic beeswax
5-6 Tbl. cocoa oil
40 drops of orange oil
First of all, you need small containers. I bought mine on Amazon. Simply google "lip balm container" and see what pops up.
You then start by gently heating the beeswax in a container. I heated it in the oven, at a balmy 100°C, until it was liquid. I then added the cocoa oil, stirred until it was fully incorporated and then added the orange oil.
Then I filled it all into the containers and waited for it to fully cool off. Aaaand scene! That's it! Easy as finding your own buttocks in the dark!
The balm is not as oily as other lipbalms but it smells incredible and my lips are now smooth as a baby's bottom (weird fixation on butts today. Sorry for that..). Hooray!
