Lip care is high on the agenda these days, but why spend money to buy it when you can use your regular ingredients at home and combine them with some nuts to make your own?
Don't even start us on a reason to get some adorable new jars to store it in too like these Maxwell & Williams ones on BHG Shop. Now pucker up!
Macadamia oil is the star ingredient in this silky-smooth lip balm that once tried, you will not be able to live without. It adds a smooth softness and richness that other oils do not. This recipe is super easy and can be doubled or tripled, ensuring the ratio of the ingredients remains the same.
2 tablespoons macadamia oil
2 tablespoons shea butter
15g piece of beeswax or 2 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
3-4 drops of rose oil or other essential oil of your choice
Combine all the ingredients in the top part of a double boiler and melt over a simmering heat. When completely melted, pour into little pots and allow to set and cool before sealing.
Note: to clean your bowl, scrape out as much remaining mixture as possible and finish cleaning by rinsing with boiling water from a kettle.
