·398 words·2 mins

Do you love wearing lip balm? Why not make your own customised whipped up lip balm at home. Not only is it easy to make, but it’s also a fun and creative activity for a rainy day. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the process of creating your very own DIY whipped up lip balm.

First things first, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 33g of beeswax
  • 33g of shea butter
  • 33g of mango butter
  • 0.5 g of vitamin E oil
  • 0.5g of your favourite flavour oil (must be suitable for use on lips)

A small glass jar or container with a lid Once you have your ingredients ready, it’s time to start making your whipped up lip balm. Here are the steps:

  1. Melt the beeswax, shea butter, and mango butter in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Stir the mixture until it has completely melted.

  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and add in the vitamin E and flavoured oil. Stir well to combine.

  3. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes, then transfer it to a mixing bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, whip the mixture until it becomes light and fluffy, similar to whipped cream.

  4. Pipe the whipped-up lip balm into a small glass jar or container and let it set for a few hours until it has hardened.

Congratulations, you’ve just made your very own whipped up lip balm! Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • If you want a firmer lip balm, increase the amount of beeswax in the recipe. If you want a softer lip balm, decrease the amount of beeswax.
  • Alternative waxes can be used for a vegan option
  • You can customise the scent of your lip balm by using different flavoured oils. Some popular options include lemon, tropical fruit or cherry
  • Store your lip balm in a cool, dry place to prevent it from melting.
  • You can customise this further with the addition of pigments/colours/pearls/glitters etc that are suitable for use on the lips. Add this in just before you whip it up
  • In conclusion, making your own whipped up lip balm is a fun and easy DIY project that can be customised to your preferences. So why not give it a try and see how much fun you can have creating your very own whipped up lip balm!
