DIY Day: Lip balms and scrubs!

I’m on a quest to find the perfect lip balm (and scrub) recipe!

I experimented with different ingredients and quantities, and although they came out a bit messy at first (see first batch on the left), they looked decent when I set them out to solidify.

Lip balms

Here are the recipes, starting from the left, and a note on their outcomes =)

First: This came out great!

  • 3 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp beeswax (beads)
  • 5 drops peppermint oil
  • 3 drops Vitamin E oil
  • Lipstick shavings


Second: This one also came out with a good consistency.

  • 1 tsp. shea butter
  • 1 tsp. beeswax
  • 2 tsp. sweet almond oil

Note: You can try using 1/2 tsp beeswax for a more liquid consistency.

Also, I like Michelle Phan’s recipe. It calls for 1 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp almond oil, and 1/2 tsp beeswax.


Third: Don’t try this at home. It never solidified!

  • 1 tsp. sweet almond oil
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1/8 tsp. beeswax
  • 4 drops vitamin E
  • 1 tsp. honey


Fourth: A liquidy mess!

  • 1 tsp. sweet almond oil
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. shea butter


Fifth (scrub): from the website Alyssa and Carlacan’t go wrong with sugar scrubs!

  • 1 tsp. sweet almond oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1.5 tsp. sugar
  • 2 drops peppermint oil
