Hey guys! This lip balm recipe contains SPF so it’s perfect for taking it with you to the beach this summer! Not just our facial skin, we also need to protect our lips from cracking and drying up in the heat.
What you need:
(choose organic whenever you can)
- 1 cup coconut oil
- 2 tbsp green tea powder
- 2 oz green tea essential oil
- 1/4 oz beeswax
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp avocado oil
- 2 tsp zinc oxide powder
Heat up the coconut oil with a water bath by placing the coconut oil in a bowl. You can use a steamer if you want. Mix the green tea powder into the coconut oil evenly, making sure it is all mixed. Filter the mixture with a sieve to ensure there are no lumps.
Next, using the same water bath, place the beeswax together with the mixture. When the beeswax has completely melted, take the bowl away from the heat. Next, add in honey, green tea essential oil, avocado oil and zinc oxide and mix evenly. Lastly, pour the mixture into a lippie jar.
