So, I thought, why not make my very own and I can even personalize it too if I wanted to. Today we’re going to make homemade lip balm. This how-to is quick and only takes a few ingredients. One of the primary ingredients in my lip balm recipe is coconut oil. Coconut oil is a good base for a lot of DIY products. I’ve also heard that the use of CBD products and coconut oil are a good pairing, considering they are both natural ingredients. A friend of mine recommended I used something like this Cbdistillery coupon code online if I was to try and incorporate CBD oil, for example, into my DIY lip balms. This could be something worth considering. Anyway, Coconut oil can be used for a variety of different DIY beauty hacks, but did you know that some people even use it to whiten their teeth? Coconut oil pulling, which involves swishing a spoonful of coconut oil around your mouth to remove plaque and toxins from your teeth and gums, is a natural remedy that can help to promote your oral health. Just remember that, when it comes to looking after your teeth, there is still no substitute for regular checkups with a Dentist in Alhambra or a dentist closer to home. You can definitely modify this recipe to your liking, but here are the basic instructions:
Next, you want to melt all the ingredients together. The quickest way is to microwave it, but many people melt it over the stove as an alternative. If you’re just going to make enough for one person, I would suggest microwaving your mixture. To fill up multiple cans, melting it over the stove may be the best. To melt over the stove, put these ingredients into a container that can withstand simmering water (ie. glass). Create a double boiler by filling a pot about an inch of the way up with water and letting that come to a slight boil. Put your ingredients in a glass container and sit it in the boiling water for as long as it takes until all the ingredients melt together.
For this tutorial, place the mixture in the microwave on medium-high for one and a half minutes, stopping every 30 seconds to check the mixture. I found that the coconut oil melted the fastest, the shea butter following that, and the bits of beeswax taking the longest to melt.
