DIY Breakfast Lip Balm
Lip Balm. Such a simple item that feels so luxurious to put on. Ever since I started making my own, I’ve become somewhat of a junkie. All I know is I will NEVER pay $3 for a tube of organic lip balm again—not when I can make it for mere cents!!
As a foodie, pastured bacon is a staple at my house. This means I end up with a lot of white gold, AKA pastured bacon fat. This year I decided to spread the wealth to friends and family and make this tasty, aromatic, and moisturizing lip balm for Christmas gifts. They were a HUGE hit!
I personally love Young Living oils (read more about why I chose this company HERE). And if you haven’t joined my private essential oil Facebook group, get access HERE, so you can receive tips and updates about new uses for oils I am discovering!
DIY Breakfast Lip Balm
- 2 liquid oz. pastured bacon fat (I reserve it from the sugar-free pastured pork bacon I order from HERE)
- 32 drops of orange essential oil
- 2-1/2 T. organic beeswax
- 15 lip balm containers
- 1-cup glass measuring cup
- rubber band
- Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.
- Place the bacon fat and beeswax into the Pyrex measuring cup and put into the oven (on a cookie sheet if you wish)
- Heat until oil/beeswax until fully melted (about 10 minutes).
- Remove from oven and place on stove top or stable trivet/heat proof flat surface.
- Add essential oils and stir.
- Pour IMMEDIATELY into lip balm containers (for pouring ease, place a rubber band around all 15 tubes so they are more stable as you fill).
- Allow to cool to room temperature.
- I place my balm in the fridge overnight and then use/give as gifts as needed.
