Going Balmy

My next step in my beauty adventure is to create lip balms.  Lip balms are really easy to make, no need for preservatives and I already have all the products on hand.

So I set about experimenting with different types of oils, those being beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil and castor.  I began testing different quantities and then worked on the combinations (as you can see from the state of the pots below, there was a lot of testing done!)

My aim was to get a balm that had gloss, and was fairly soft for easy application, as well as being ultra moisturising

 I found a winning combo - first one is flavoured with wild berry the second has real chocolate.

My hunt for packaging is now on!!
