Waxelene is probably one of my favorite products to use. A petroleum jelly alternative, waxelene is made up of organic soy oil, beeswax, vitamin E oil and organic rosemary oil.  I use waxelene for everything, from a lip balm to a foot cream.  I also love to use waxalene for my homemade skincare. In this post, I wanted to show you a super quick way to make your own tinted lip balm using waxelene and your favorite lip color.

make your own tinted lip balmIn a clean, sterile container, melt 1 teaspoon of waxelene and a small amount of your favorite lip color.  Mix well. Transfer to a clean container.

If you don’t have waxelene, you can combine 1/4 teaspoon of melted beeswax with 3/4 teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil.  Waxelene is fairly easy to find in places like Target, CVS, or Walgreens, costing about $10 for a 9 oz jar. Online stores like Amazon also carries them. Waxelene is definitely a beauty must have!
