A while ago I started the process of making my own lip balm. It fits right in with all of my bath and beauty product being natural and organic and I love that it can so easily be handmade. After experimenting with a few variations, I have come up with my personal favorite blend. Of course you can adjust to make it fit your preferences. I do add just a little color to mine with a natural color stick. You can also use pure mineral powder blush or a touch of your favorite lipstick color. Remember that the yellow of the olive oil will change the color a bit. If you replaced the olive oil with all coconut oil, you would be able to get a clearer pink. I like the added olive oil so I don’t mind. Another option for those who are allergic to coco butter is lanolin. I will be trying this in the next batch and will report how I like it.
