DIY moment

Lotion and lip balms are an obsession of mine so I decided to start there.

My first lip balm recipe.

2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp beeswax
1 tbsp cocoa butter
1 tbsp honey

Melt all ingredients in a double boiler, pour into small tins, let cool, done!
Fills 6 tins.

I can't believe how easy this is and how amazing the lip balm feels!

My first lotion bar recipe.

5 oz coconut oil
4 oz shea butter
4 oz beeswax

Melt in double boiler, pour into molds, let cool, done!
2 square bars. 

I've been using this for a week now and my skin loves it!



  1. I'm so impressed by your lip balms and would you consider to sell them in your etsy store? :)

    (The tin packing with the signature stamp is so cute!)

  2. Your too kind Hybrid J! If I do decide to sell them I'll let you know...need to test them first.

    I was surprised by how nice a tiny stamp could look...glad you like!
