#HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN HONEY, CINNAMON & COCONUT OIL LIP BALM…

I’m sure we have all got a bit of honey in our cupboards, so why not have a go at making your own lip balm with it. It only requires a few extra ingredients…

Ingredients
1 teaspoon Honey
1 teaspoon Apricot Oil
8 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil
2 teaspoons Coconut Oil
1 tablespoon Shea Butter
1 tablespoon Beeswax

Method
In a small saucepan bring about a pint of water to simmer over a medium heat.
Place an oven-safe bowl over the saucepan to make a double boiler unless you have the pans for this.
Add the beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and apricot oil to the bowl and heat until the beeswax melts, stirring every now and again.
When the wax is melted, remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the honey and cinnamon essential oil then pour into lip balm tins.
When it’s cool it’s ready to use.

Some more benefits of cinnamon essential oil are :
 
  • Promotes circulation both internally and when applied to the skin
  • Maintains a healthy immune system
  • Promotes oral health
  • Helps alleviate sore muscles and joints
  • Long used to flavor food and for its internal health benefits

    The Body Shop Cool BB Cream which is a 12 hour quenching moisture and protection cream all in one. It gives a lovely glow to your skin but at the same time moisturises it.

    It costs £12 and only comes in the one shade and is 50ml. It’s very light and easy to blend onto your skin leaving you with a natural and fresh look. This is my first try at this product and I just love it, love it, love it.
