Chapped lips can be incredibly annoying, unsightly, and painful. No one wants to kiss or be kissed by someone with crusty, chapped lips, so it’s important to moisturize. With terpene-infused lip balm, you will have the knowledge that each and every ingredient is natural and safe.
These are easier to make in bulk, so in order to make 15 or so lip balms, you will need the following:
- 15 lip balm tubes (available online)
- 1 Tablespoon beeswax
- 3 Tablespoons or your favorite carrier oil (I prefer coconut oil)
- 2½ teaspoons Shea butter
- 5 drops vitamin E oil
- 5 drops of a terpene blend such as ‘lemonhead’ or limonene isolate
Using a terpene blends is ideal for this formula as they are a complex blend of terpene isolates and are precisely procured to have an abundance of flavor and profound effects.
First, set a glass measuring cup or a jar into a saucepan with an inch of water. Melt the wax, coconut oil and shea butter in the jar over medium heat. Remove from heat and quickly stir in the vitamin E oil and lemonhead terpene blend. Carefully pour the mixture into the empty tubes and let cool.
Beeswax is an amazing skin-healing ingredient. This gift from our yellow striped insect friends is filled with softening and emollient-rich vitamin A, which helps rebuild damaged skin cells.
This formula smells and tastes exactly like a lemonhead and works great on chapped lips. Smelling this lemon lip balm will get your mouth salivating and tempt you to twist it out and take a big chomp. However, I recommend not eating your lip balm.
