LemonGrass Lip Balm Recipe

by Lesley Kim

The scent of lemongrass just takes me back to a relaxing spa.  This calming scent seems to just dissipate all my stress away, which is why I probably like to use this essential oil in many of my DIY homemade skincare.  Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite homemade lemongrass lip balm recipe, featuring of course, the lemongrass essential oil.

In a clean, microwave safe bowl, combine 6 parts coconut oil to 1 part beeswax.  Melt in a microwave in 5 seconds interval until the two ingredients are melted.  Be careful as the mixture will be very hot.  Gently stir and mix with a spoon.

Once  the coconut oil and beeswax have mixed and slightly cooled, add a few drops of Vitamin E oil.  Add about 3-5 drops of lemongrass oil, depending on the strength of your essential oil.

Gently pour the mixture in your lip balm containers and allow to harden, which should take approximately 15 minutes.  Your lemongrass lip balm is ready to use!  I hope you enjoy this LemonGrass Lip Balm Recipe. =)
