Heating air, insufficient fluid intake and icy wind. These are just a few of the causes of dry and chapped lips. If you also start to tug at it, painful wounds and sometimes even inflammations can develop.
To counteract these circumstances we have put together a recipe in which you can make use of the positive properties of CBD oil in combination with nourishing beeswax, jojoba oil and cocoa and shea butter.
Ingredients (makes 4 pens and a 30ml can)
- 20g beeswax pellets
- 10g cocoa butter
- 10g shea butter
- 20g jojoba oil (or almond oil)
- 1-2 drops of vitamin E oil
- Hempamed CBD Oil
- Natural essential oil (optional)
- Water bath
- Empty lipstick tubes or small containers for filling
- Melt the beeswax, cocoa butter and shea butter in a water bath or microwave. The beeswax takes the longest to melt completely.
- Wax, butter and jojoba oil are best mixed together in a water bath. Note that the beeswax becomes solid again very quickly, so it is recommended to have the water bath ready until the end.
- Prepare your vessels for filling. In your own interest these should be disinfected.
- Remove the mixture from the water bath and add any amount of CBD oil and the vitamin E oil. If you would like to give your balsam another taste you can now add a drop of mint oil for example. Make sure that the oil is suitable for skin contact.
- Now fill the mixture quickly into the containers. If the beeswax solidifies too quickly, you can always reheat the mixture briefly in a water bath, taking care not to overheat it, so as not to destroy the oils.
- Let your balm cool down well, then it is ready for use.
Note 1: If the balm has become too firm for you, you should reduce the beeswax content or use more jojoba oil in your next attempt. The same applies in reverse. For lip balm in pencil form it is recommended if it is rather firm, in a jar a softer mixture is more suitable.
Note 2: If you want to avoid the use of animal products, carnauba wax is a good alternative to beeswax.
