There are many versions of homemade lip balms out there, but this particular one only takes a few ingredients and you will be amazed how it easy it is to make. Moisturising, tasty & all natural you really can’t go wrong, they also make perfect simple gifts.

 

For your containers you can use tubes or pots, have a look on etsy.com for cute tins and containers. You can even reuse tins like Altoid’s Minis, I have up cycled some craft containers, that had glitter in them, after my 4 year happily tipped the glitter all over the floor 🙂

 

Make sure you are clean equipment and your hands are also nice and clean, to avoid any nasties.
