Beetroot is known for its many health benefits, but did you know that it can also be used to make a nourishing and moisturizing lip balm? Beetroot lip balm is an all-natural alternative to traditional lip balms that are filled with chemicals and preservatives. Making your own beetroot lip balm is not only fun and easy, but it can also save you money in the long run. In this article, I will explain how to make beetroot lip balm in detail.
- 1 tablespoon of grated beeswax
- 1 tablespoon of shea butter
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon of beetroot powder
- 1 teaspoon of honey (optional)
- Double boiler or a heat-safe bowl and a pot
- Small glass jar or container
- Measuring cups and spoons
Step 1: Melt the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil
The first step in making beetroot lip balm is to melt the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil together. You can do this using a double boiler or by placing a heat-safe bowl over a pot of boiling water. If you don’t have a double boiler, you can create one by placing a heat-safe bowl over a pot of boiling water. Make sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl.
Add the grated beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil to the double boiler or heat-safe bowl. Heat the mixture over low heat until everything is melted and combined.
Step 2: Add the beetroot powder
Once the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil have melted and combined, it’s time to add the beetroot powder. Beetroot powder is what gives the lip balm its beautiful pink color.
Add 1 teaspoon of beetroot powder to the mixture and stir until it’s completely combined.
Step 3: Add honey (optional)
If you want your lip balm to have some extra moisturizing properties, you can add honey to the mixture. Honey is a natural humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture.
Add 1 teaspoon of honey to the mixture and stir until it’s completely combined.
Step 4: Pour the mixture into a container
Once everything is combined, it’s time to pour the mixture into a container. You can use a small glass jar or any other container that you have on hand. Make sure the container is clean and dry before pouring the mixture in.
Carefully pour the mixture into the container and let it cool and solidify. This will take around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the temperature in your room.
Step 5: Use and enjoy!
Once the lip balm has cooled and solidified, it’s ready to use! Apply it to your lips as needed to keep them moisturized and nourished.
Beetroot lip balm is a great all-natural alternative to traditional lip balms that are filled with chemicals and preservatives. Making your own beetroot lip balm is easy and fun, and it can save you money in the long run. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make a nourishing and moisturizing lip balm that will keep your lips healthy and hydrated. So why not give it a try?
