Homemade Lip Balm & Gloss: {Recipes & Tips}

Posted By Tipnut On November 15, 2010 @ 10:55 am In Home Spa | 8 Comments

With just a few simple ingredients homemade lip balms can be made that incorporate favorite flavors and colors…they’re super easy to whip up and make great gifts too!

ContainersHere’s a list I put together of recipes and tutorials…there are also a few tips for moisturizing at the bottom of the page.

First up, here are a couple goodies I found tucked away in my files (both chocolate flavored), yum!

Gloss:

1 1/2 tsp grated cocoa butter
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/8 tsp vitamin E oil
3 chocolate chips

  • Microwave the first three items until melted–watch so it isn’t heated too long.
  • While still hot, add the chocolate and stir until melted and well blended.
  • Pour into a small clean container and cool completely before using.

Balm:

3 TBS Cocoa Butter
5 Chocolate Chips
1 Capsule Vitamin E

  • Gently melt items in a microwave then blend well with a spoon.
  • Put into a container and cool completely in the refrigerator before using.

Winter’s coming and that means: chapped lips! Here are a few different tips to try:

  • Dab on some Vaseline, take an old toothbrush and rub the vaseline gently over them. Doesn’t hurt ;).
  • Rub the gel from a cracked open vitamin E gel capsule on them.
  • Try rubbing on some sesame or olive oil.
  • It also helps to keep well hydrated–drink lots of water!
