Sunny Lemonade Lip Chap

| |

This homemade lip chap is my friend Shelby’s recipe. It’s a great homemade gift and a more natural substitute for store-bought balms.

Lip chap of any sorts is a necessity of mine (you can check out my favorite here!). But as the weather warms up here in Canada I was in need of a new scent!

I’ve always preferred a lip chap (in a self pushing container) versus a balm (where you dip your finger in) simply because I never know what to do with my finger once it’s sticky with balm! And since I’m a chapstick addict it’s no wonder I’m always on the hunt for more variations. I normally have about six on the go at once.

This particular lip chap is simple. Simple ingredients, a simple scent and simply perfect. It’s a very soft lip chap which means it melts right onto your lips and the lemon scent is an extremely nice pick me up. Plus, lemons have been shown to have all sorts of antibacterial and healing properties making it the perfect addition!

Materials to Make Sunny Lemon Lip Chap

Makes seven lip chaps.

  • 1 Tablespoon shea butter
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon beeswax
  • 2 four inch long strips of lemon peel
  • 17 drops lemon essential oil (depending on your brand)
  • Double boiler
  • Small whisk
  • Lip chap tubes <– this set comes with a tray that makes dispensing the mixture into the tubes easier
  • Small funnel

How To Make Lemonade Lip Chap

Combine the first four ingredients into a double boiler and heat until everything is liquid and mixed. This takes roughly six minutes but I leave mine going for ten to better infuse the lemon rind.

While this is boiling, set up your lip chap tubes and funnel. Have everything ready because you don’t have a lot of time to pour before the mixture starts to harden.

Remove from double boiler, with a small knife or fork remove the rinds and whisk in essential oil.

Moving quickly, pour the mixture into each individual tube slowly making sure to stop about a drop from the top.

Let the tubes cool on the counter for one hour, place the tops on them and let them sit for twenty four hours.

Enjoy!
