This is the first time I have made lip balm and I was surprised how easy it was! My motivation was a block of beeswax I bought from a local farmers market over a year ago, and yes I bought it without knowing what I was going to do with it , but I was so impressed with the women selling it who was keeping hives here in our inner-city suburb that I took some beeswax home with me!
I am so pleased with the results of my first foray into natural beauty products I can’t help but share my results.
On the stove I warmed up half a cup of olive oil and then added 2 tablespoons of grated beeswax I then stirred in 1 teaspoon of New Zealand Manuka Honey. When the beeswax was all melted I poured the balm into an empty jar.
So easy with just 3 ingredients I created an all natural lip balm! Next time I would like to make natural scrubs and creams maybe using the herbs and flowers in our garden!
