Lip Balm

The colder weather always leaves my lips dry and I can never seem to find a lovely lip balm that suits, they are either too oily, too thick, too sticky or too bright in colour.

I decided to try making my own and I was surprisingly stoked with the out come so I thought I would share!

Here is my scrummy lip balm recipe:

You will need:
2 Tbs Beeswax Pearls
2 Tbs Coconut oil
1/4 tsp Honey
1 Black current tea bag

What to do:
In 1/4 cup of boiling water place the black current tea bag and let sit.

In a saucepan melt the beeswax, coconut and honey. Add 1 Tbs of the black current tea for colour and flavour.

Transfer mix into containers and leave to cool. 

(I used a medicine syringe measurer to transfer the hot mixture)


  1. This looks lovely. I love the subtle purple tint, too. Holly.x

  2. Thank you Holli for this lip balm recipe.
    I'm going through the Paw Paw ointment so I shall give this lip balm a go soon. Would make cute gifts too.


I love that you have stopped by, and love reading your thoughts and opions, thanks for sharing. xx
