Thrifty Beauty: All natural, two ingredient lip balm

Anyone who reads my other blog, will know I am a fan of coconut oil. Perhaps the biggest fan in the world. I kneel at the alter of coconut… It is my deodorant, hair conditioner, teeth cleaner and moisturiser.

I have recently bought some bees wax and it has taken my use of coconut oil to the NEXT LEVEL!

Bees wax sounds like a tricky thing to get hold of but it is all over the internet and is dead cheap. I got a small hunk for £2. Splash out because you can really do stuff with beeswax…

For now, here is a super basic but AMAZING lip balm recipe. I tend to avoid lip balm as my lips become so needy, wanting more and more of it. So I only bust it out on windy as days or days when I am doing a lot of talking. (Erm… That’s most days.)

This is kind of where the tutorial gets a bit ridiculous. It is so easy.

Take some coconut oil, and some bees wax- in equal measures. So a spoon of coconut oil and a spoon of bees wax- or more if you are super keen. Put in a sauce pan and gently heat until it mixes together.

TADA! Yep, that’s it!

The coconut oil is so very, very moisturising and the bees wax acts like a barrier. It smells and tastes pretty yum and I think you are going to LOVE IT.

And now you’ve bought your bees wax you will be ready for all the other DIY natural beauty recipes involving bees wax coming up over the next month or so.
