We suggest you pick a characteristic, hand crafted lip analgesic. It is anything but difficult to prepare and it contains great quality components, which will enable you to keep your lips hydrated.
In a basic and characteristic way we can make at home an exceptionally compelling lip medicine to avoid and treat dry lips. Some ingredients, for example, coconut oil, and lavender fundamental oil will help keep them generally hydrated and ensured.
A natural or a conventional lip balm?
If we usually use a conventional lip balm, you should know that among its ingredients may be present some synthetic vaseline, which derives from petroleum, artificial flavors and preservatives.
These components can not only harm us in the long term, by crossing the pores of the skin, but you also run the risk of consuming them slowly by applying to the lips.
These products are tested to certify their use on our body. However, they are not considered foods, although we consume them gradually because they are so close to the mouth.
For this reason we recommend opting for a natural lip balm , made with good quality ingredients, which are not harmful for your body and health.
Homemade lip balm
To make the homemade lip balm we will need the following ingredients:
- 1 spoonful of bee wax (a piece of about 20 gr)
- 1 teaspoon of extra virgin coconut oil (7 gr)
- 1 teaspoon of calendula oil (7 gr)
- 5 drops of lavender essential oil
We will need a suitable container for our balm. It can be a small container, as those for lotion for the eye area, or we can use the container of a lipstick that is already empty and fill it up.
To prepare this lip balm we must follow the following steps:
To mix the ingredients well we will have to melt the bee wax and also the coconut oil, in case it is solid.
Mix these two ingredients well and add the calendula oil and lavender essential oil.
Before the mixture is cold, place it in the container that you have chosen for our balm.
When it cools it will harden, and you are ready to use it and keep your lips hydrated and beautiful.
