Video Tutorial: Homemade Lip Balm

Let me present you with my very first tutorial video: how to make your own lip balm. The recipe is incredibly simple and very customisable. This recipe is inspired by these lip chap recipes that I wrote about on Urban Earthworm (but even more simplified).

Here’s a few other points to keep in mind:

  • You can buy beeswax online, or if you can get in touch with a local beekeeper, that’s even better! Look for beekepers in farmers markets or try looking them up online and contact them directly. If you go through a personal beekeper, the beeswax will probably be cheaper than online – some even hand it out for free! At the same time you support a local entrepreneur, and you can be sure where your wax comes from.
  • If you are vegan, or don’t want to use beeswax for other reasons, you can substitute the beeswax with a vegetable wax, such as carnauba, candelilla, jojoba or soy wax.
  • This lip balm recipe is good for one small jar of lip balm but you can easily double the amount to make more at the same time!
  • Pick any essential oils that you like, some suggestions are: peppermint, rose, lime or other citrus fruit, lavender.

Hope you like the video! And let me know if you have suggestions for other YouTube tutorials icon smile Video Tutorial: Homemade Lip Balm
