Make your own vegan lip balm at home and express your crafty divaness

February 26, 2008By 4 Comments

So I wanted to let you all in on a cool, crafty secret. Anyone can make vegan lip balm at home. It’s simple, cheap and fun!

Okay, here’s what you’ll need…

Ingredients:
2 oz. hemp seed oil, avocado oil or almond oil
1 oz. virgin coconut oil
1.2 oz candelilla wax
1/4 tsp. rosemary extract
few drops of vitamin E oil
few drops of an essential oil for that perfect scent (peppermint, orange, lemon, grapefruit, rose, vanilla, etc.)

Melt the candelilla wax in a pan over low heat (but don’t let it boil). Once melted add the remaining ingredients except for the essential oil. Heat through and transfer to a heat safe container with a pour spout. Add essential oil and then stir well and pour immediately into lip balm tubes. Top off the lip balm (but not with your hands). Let it cool and enjoy. This recipe makes about 5 ounces of lip balm – enough to share with all of your gal pals.

This recipe can also be found on The Ponte Vedrea Soap Shoppe page.

One more recipe for my vegan lip balm-a-holics:

*Creamy Cocoa Lip Balm*
4 oz. extra virgin olive oil
3 oz. candalilla wax
1/2 vitamin E capsule
1/2 tsp. cocoa

Follow the same directions as mentioned above and ta-da! This is a guarnteed way to ensure your lip balm is vegan, cruelty free and ready to wear! Talk about taking matters into your own hands. ;)
