Home Made Lip Balms

A hand bag essential, lip balms keep your lip soft. A little while ago I checked out the ingredients in a store bought version and here is what I found

  • Oxybenzone- derived from petroleum is a UV absorber, associated with endocrine disruption, produces damaging reactive oxygen species upon exposure to sunlight
  • Mentyl Anthranilate- synthetic UV absorber not assessed for safety in cosmetics. produces damaging reative oxygen species upone exposure to sunlight
  • Fragrance- synthetic scent which contains phthalates
  • parabens- synthetic preservatives- suspected endocrine disruption, contact dermatitis and skin irritation in some people

I am not happy about any of these ingredients going on my lips or my families for that matter. Here is the good news. It is really easy to make your own and the recipes are good enough to eat. Chances are you will already have some of these ingredients in your pantry. Here are a couple of recipes and places I have sourced my ingredients from. These recipes are great for nourishing your lips and are quick to make.

Choc Mint Lip Balms ( approx 18 tubes)

  • 15 g beeswax
  • 15g Shea Butter
  • 15g Cacao Butter
  • 15g Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp cacao Powder ( or more)
  • 18 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Melt beeswax, coconut oil and butters in a glass pyrex dish over a pot of simmering water. Once melted, remove from heat and stir through Cacao Powder and Peppermint Essential oil. Use syringe to fill lip tubes and set in the fridge.

Lavender Lip balms ( approx 18 tubes)

  • 20g Shea butter
  • 20g avocado Oil
  • 20g Beeswax
  • 15 drops lavender oil

Melt beeswax, butter and oil together in pyrex dish. Remove from heat and stir in lavender Essential oil. Syringe into tubes and set in the fridge

Tips

  • Use a ramekin to stand your lip tubes in
  • pick up a syringe from your local pharmacy
  • decorate your lip tubes with washi tape
  • work fast before the lip balm sets. You can always re-melt
  • make sure lip tubes are wound down fully before filling

Nourishing Night time Face Serum

 

A little while ago, I started making a face serum as I had read about the great benefits it can have for your skin. I absolutely love it and use it daily. My skin has improved and making my own is economical and I customise it each time. I apply 4 drops of the serum after cleansing and follow with a moisturiser before bed.  I have had rave reviews over this super simple face serum you can make at home. Go on give it a try.

Here is what you need

Jojoba Oil– a golden liquid wax that mimics the skin’s natural oils, penetrating deep into the skin’s layers.

Rosehip Oil– absorbed quickly into the skin, it is pressed from seeds. Perfect for mature and sunburnt skin. Beneficial for healing scars

Lavender Essential oil;  Fabulous for all skin. Lavender has been used for centuries in personal products not only for it’s beautiful scent but it’s ability to support skin.

Frankincense Essential oil; promotes the regeneration of healthy cells, a powerful anti-aging oil.

Copaiba Essential oil; has astringent properties that help tighten the skin. Copaiba infuses the skin with powerful nutrients and organic compounds that can eliminate the appearance of blisters, marks, and pimples

Use a  glass bottle with a dropper in it (like these or try Centaurpackaging.com) I use  a 2% concentration of Essential Oils, which is recommended for daily use. Download dilution chart here

Basic Face serum

20ml dropper bottle 12 drops essential oil

4 dops Lavender    Essential Oil*                                                                                                                   4 Drops Frankincense   Essential Oil*                                                                                                        4 Drops Copaiba Essential Oil*

When mixing your serum add the essential oils to the bottle first, lightly swirl to combine before adding the carrier oil.

Fill with Jojoba oil or carrier oil of choice

For the winter month’s I use a half half mixture of jojoba and reship oil for extra nourishing. Fill with 1/2 Rosehip and 1/2 Jojoba oil, purchase these here

Other Oils to consider

Cedarwood Essential Oil; has anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, reduces skin irritations, promoting relaxation and balance.

Myrrh Essential oil; moisturising and soothing, great for ageing skin

Geranium Essential oil; increases circulation, tighten and smooths skin and is an excellent choice for problem skin, not to mention it smells divine!

This is not a complete list, there are so many fabulous oils, but start with what you have and you will reap the benefits!

If making your own is not for you, Young Living Essential Serum is an excellent serum ready to apply straight on your skin. perfect for dry and acne prone skin and affordable!
