What do you really want in your lip balm? Flavoring, color, nothing at all, a cool name on the label, it's all a matter of preference....but what chemicals do you want to put on your lips? Do you really know what all those ingredients are??
I know dry cracked lips in the winter is Horrible, and wind burn from the sun in the summer is miserable too. Lip balm is a year round maintenance to keep them as smooth and moisturized but can be difficult to find just the right balm.
Now flavoring is all good, if that is what your lips want, essential oils are amazing for healing and moisturizing your lips. There are tons of flavors and essential oils that you can pick from.
I made a blend that is as natural as I could get it so it would be firm but not too hard, and have the moisturizer from the oils and butters to soften and protect your lips at the same time. I added Vitamin E with the coconut oil because It contains fatty acid emollients, antioxidants. The emollients get absorbed into the skin very easily and keep the skin moisturized for longer hours. Vitamin E and antioxidants make your lips healthy and hydrated.
The almond oil is a rich essential oil extracted from the almond seeds. Almond oil is rich in healthy fats, minerals, proteins and vitamin B & E. Vitamin B2 restores the moisture to the skin or lips. Almond oil protects your skin from the sunburn. Its emollients soften and rejuvenate your lips.
Shea Butter is naturally rich in Vitamins A, E, and F, that helps calm inflamed skin and soothes dry, cracked lips. Pure Beeswax holds it all together .
Not all essential oils are to be used for your lips, here are a few to mention that are good to use :
Lime (distilled, not cold-pressed)
Lemon (distilled, not cold-pressed)
Vanilla Absolute I hope to experiment more with herbal plants that are great in healing so keep a look out for new ones soon. If you have a special order or request just send me a message and I will be glad to make it for you!
