Homemade Rose Lip Balm

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I couldn’t help but create a special something for those mama’s that want to wear something feminine but not full of chemicals.

Women wear an average of 515 chemicals per day. That’s a lot of chemicals!

This homemade rose lip balm has a sweet taste of honey and a soft fragrance of rose– nothing too overpowering. It’s edible and free of any chemicals. Oh, and it takes like 15 minutes to make.

Amazing, right?

I used a rose absolute essential oil instead of rose essential oil because little did I know when I was researching ingredients to create this, that true rose essential oil is like $100 for a few drops! Insane right? Apparently it takes a large number of rose petals to create very few drops of the oil.

I chose an essential oil that used jojoba oil in the mixture instead of grapeseed oil because I am not very comfortable using grapeseed. My good friend Scratch Mommy — the queen of DIY — uses and loves jojoba so I’m taking her word for it!

One last thing… In an effort to spice up this blog and ignite my creative side, I’ve created a short video presentation all about how simple making this lip balm is. Check it out and let me know what you think!

p.s. I’m still working on my video presentations so please don’t judge!

Homemade Rose Lip Balm
  1. Combine beeswax and almond oil in a pan on low heat; stir until melted.
  2. Add honey; stir for a few minutes still on low heat.
  3. Remove from heat and add rose absolute essential oil.
  4. While mixture is cooling, continue to stir so honey does not separate.
  5. Pour into desired container.
  6. I recommend a small glass jar because if you put the mixture into a chap stick tube, you can’t mix it and then the honey will fall to the bottom.

If you are wondering where I got that too-cute-for-words mini honey pot, you can find it HERE.
