Fast & Simple DIY LIP Balm
I thought I'd share this fast natural way to make lip balm
I only used two ingredients, which at Christmas time I think we will all a have 1 tangerine spare 😄
Vitamin c is a good a alrounder for skin, hair and our bones.
Throughout winter we all need some tlc
Especially our lips
I like to try natural remedies.
If they turn out wrong, I won't post them.
But if i think, hang on i can save money i will share my creations.
I have chapped lips, I never use lipstick it just because our weather as changed I needed TLC 😍
Below are my tangerines or known by others as clementines.
What you will need
2. small jar to store
3. Sharpe knife
4. Organic coconut oil
5. Metal mixing jar
7. Spoon to mix
The small jar from marmalade is perfect to store the balm in.
I start by chopping my tangerine
I squeeze the juice of half a tangerine into the glass small jar
I chopp the tangerine peeling into small pieces.
I will use this later
I'm happy with the tangerine juice
I use one teaspoon of organic coconut oil usin a metal cup to mix
I add the tangerine juice
I added more juice
Back to the peelings
I cover only the bottom of the jar with peelings,
Below is the juice and coconut oil
I placed the mix into a eggcup and placed it in the microwave for 10 seconds only.
After it's been in the microwave it should look like below
More creamy ect
Pour the eggcup into your glass jar.
Covering the bottom layer of tangerine peeling, filling to the top,
You could add more peelings for exfoliating the lips aswell but I only need the balm.
Place into the fridge or freezer it will turn from liquid looking solid.
It will last up to a month.
It will nourish the lips leaving them soft, and ready for all of winter.
I am very happy with this tangerine juice coconut lip balm.
The citrus as a lovley taste.
And that's how to make a Christmas lip balm for chapped lips.
You can use this day and night! Even on your face, you could make a bigger batch.
Tangerine juice as meny benefits being extracted naturally by the fruit is better then essential oil.
Some might argue?
I did try this straight away it made my lips taste of tangerine and made them softer. I have been using this for 5 days now and dont have chapped lips nomore.
If you try this please leave a comment let me no what you think.
Thank you kindly
