It’s been a busy few weeks leading up to this holiday season for me. All that has really kept me grounded is trying to keep up with posts for all of you. And I haven’t been very good at that either :/ Nevertheless, I owe you the second half of last week’s recipe. I hope you enjoy this Citrus & Sandlewood Lip Balm.
If you missed last week’s post, go read my Lip Scrub post first. It makes your lips ultra smooth so they are all ready for this rich lip balm. As usual, this post contains affiliate links. Which means at no additional cost to you, I make a small percentage of any of your purchases. Thank you for supporting my blog.
If you have a question about the brand of essential oils I use, send me an inquiry here. Due to policy regulations, I am not allowed to tell you directly. I promise to only answer your questions and WILL NOT pester you with newsletters and sales gimmicks. I honestly don’t have the time to be a multi-level marketing guru.
Here is what you need:
- 45 grams Unrefined Organic Shea Butter
- 30 grams Sweet Almond Oil
- 20 grams Organic Beeswax Pastilles
- 10 grams Vitamin E Oil
- 20 drops each Citrus and Sandlewood Essential Oils (or any oils you prefer)
In a quart size pan on the stove, bring two cups water to a boil. In a heat-safe glass bowl, combine all ingredients, except the essential oils. Place glass bowl in pan of boiling water and allow to melt completely. Remove from heat and allow to cool ten minutes.
Set up your Lip Balm Containers for pouring. I added one drop of each essential oil to the bottom of the container before pouring in the melted lip balm. This recipe makes approximately twenty 5-gram pots of lip balm. Hello, perfect last minute gift!
As with most of my recipes, you can choose different essential oils for your recipe. The combination of the warm sandlewood and punchy citrus made me feel like I was in a warmer place with a beach just waiting for me. Wishful thinking. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I’m going to be taking a little break over the holidays, but I will return with a new post for 2015. Stay safe everybody!
