Now with the arrival of the cold, the care with the lips must increase to avoid the cracks. There are several lip balm options on the market. However, if you want to try a natural moisturizer, I will pass a nice recipe for you to make at home.
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon shea butter
- 1 teaspoon almond oil
- 1 drop of lemon essential oil
How to prepare the lip moisturizer?
Heat the coconut oil and the karite butter until melted. Add the almond oil and mix well. Add the drop of essential oil and mix well. Put in a clean dry pack and place in the refrigerator for an hour to harden.
You can use another essential oil if you prefer. In cold weather store in a cool, dark environment. In the heat, leave in the refrigerator. Lasts up to 2 months.
Apply to lips when dry or needing moisturizing. Also, go through bedtime to moisturize at night.
The combination of coconut oil, karite butter and almond oil softens, moisturizes and nourishes the lips. The balm forms a protective layer helping to retain water, leaving lips moisturized and soft. The refreshing and fruity lemon essential oil has a delicious aroma and mild antimicrobial effect. And the smell is delicious!
Once you have the ingredients is very simple and quick to do. How about experimenting?
