Recipe ideas: make lip balm yourself? You use these ingredients to create your own products

Natural cosmetics are becoming increasingly important: In contrast to conventional cosmetics, organic care products do not contain any chemical or artificial ingredients, some of which are suspected of being harmful to our health. In addition, they are usually manufactured in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner - and that comes at a steep price. For this reason, you can take lip care into your own hands and make your own lip balm. This saves money and you also know exactly which (natural) ingredients have been used. Below you will find three different recipe suggestions that you can easily copy at home.

1. Recipe

You need the following three ingredients:

10 g coconut oil

10 g shea butter

10 grams of beeswax

You will also need a few small jars (about six) or empty lipstick tubes in which you can then fill and store the lip balm. And if you like, you can also add two to three drops of an essential oil (e.g. from cocoa) to the finished mass - for an individual scent.

Now it's time to prepare:

2. Recipe

You need the following four ingredients:

5 grams of honey

5 g cocoa butter

5 grams of beeswax

10 ml jojoba oil

Here, too, you need an estimated five jars of five milliliters each if you make this lip balm yourself. It is also a good idea to use essential oils to round off the fragrance in this recipe. Which fragrance is best suited is up to your personal taste. In this case, vanilla, for example, would fit quite well.

Now it's time to prepare:

In the same saucepan, melt the beeswax and then the cocoa butter over a bain-marie and stir the contents.

As soon as a homogeneous mass has formed, take the container out of the water bath and stir the jojoba oil evenly into the quantity.

The honey is only stirred in at the end before you pour the finished lip balm into the cans and let it cool down in the fridge.

3. Recipe

You need the following four ingredients:

2 TL Vaseline

1 TL Honig

2 tsp almond oil

1 TL Lippenstift

The lipstick is primarily used to give the lip balm a nice color. This makes approximately two cans - if you want to make more, just adjust the ingredient amounts upwards.

Now it's time to prepare:

Again, take a small, heat-resistant container such as a glass or mug and pour all the ingredients into it.

Here, too, the ingredients have to be melted again over a water bath and stirred until an even mass is formed.

Finally, the finished mass is divided between the cans and stored in a cool place until the lip balm hardens.
