How to make an easy lemon meringue lip balm recipe.  This recipe and materials is included in the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box Starter Box.

How many lip balms do you have?  I have one in the car, one in my purse, one beside my bed, one in my desk drawer, and at least two more floating around the house or in a pocket.

When I saw this lemon meringue essential oil lip balm recipe in the Simply Earth Essential Oil Starter Box, I was so excited.  I love bakery scented lip balms.



I'm not a huge fan of lemon, but this sounded really good.  And it is so yummy smelling!

This recipes makes two lip balms.  One for your purse and one for beside your bed.  Or give one to a friend.

I'll keep your secret if you want to keep them both for yourself.  I wouldn't blame you.

Lemon Meringue Essential Oil Lip Balm

This lip balm recipe is from the Simply Earth Starter Box.  I'll also be sharing another recipe from the Starter Box next week.

What is the Simply Earth Starter Box?


Simply Earth is an essential oil company that sells oils, blends, and other accessories.  They also have a monthly subscription box.

When you subscribe, you'll get four essential oil bottles plus other supplies to make six natural DIY recipes.

If you subscribe and use my code EVERYTHINGPRETTYFREE, you get a free bonus box with more supplies plus a $40 gift card to purchase more oils later.

When you subscribe, you'll get that month's box if it's still available.  If it's sold out, you'll get the Starter Box.

The Starter Box is just like the monthly box with 4 oils and supplies to make 6 recipes, including this lemon meringue essential oil lip balm recipe.  Learn more about the Simply Earth Starter Box here.

You can also buy just the Starter Box with no monthly commitment.  This is a great way to try it to see if you like it and get four oils that you'll use for other DIY projects.



Beeswax


Beeswax is what gives this lip balm its structure and bulk.  It's also great for your skin.  It's moisturizing, and it is an antioxidant.

Beeswax also forms a protective barrier on your lips.  This helps seal in moisture and hold the other ingredients next to your lips so they can work longer.

Coconut Oil


Coconut oil also helps harden this lip balm.  It's moisturizing on your lips.  Sometimes I use plain coconut oil to moisturize my lips.

Like the beeswax, it also helps form a barrier and lock in moisture.

Coconut oil can help reduce inflammation.  It's also antibacterial, so it can protect your lips from a secondary infection if your lips are cracked or chapped.



Almond Oil


Almond oil is a great all purpose oil for your skin and lips.  It's not a heavy oil, so it won't leave your lips feeling oily.

Almond oil has vitamin E to keep your lips healthy and protect against damage from UV rays.

Almond oil can also help exfoliate the lips.  If your lips are dry or chapped, it can help remove dead skin cells.

I highly recommend using a lip scrub recipe if your lips are dry or chapped.  It really helps the lip balm work better for me.

Frankincense Essential Oil


Frankincense essential oil is one of my favorite essential oils for the skin.  It helps tone the skin and strengthen it.  It's also naturally anti-inflammatory and can promote tissue regeneration.

If you have chapped lips, frankincense can help promote the formation of new skin cells for healing.

It's no wonder frankincense made my list of best essential oils for skin!

Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon essential oil is high in vitamin C, which is an antioxidant that helps fight free radicals.  It helps even the skin tone and acts like astringent.

It also helps tighten the skin for smoother looking skin.

Do note that lemon essential oils is considered photosensitive.  If you use it and are exposed to UV light too quickly, you can get redness, itching, burning, and inflammation.

Do not use this lemon meringue essential oil lip balm if you will be outside for extended periods or going tanning or be otherwise exposed to UV light.

Ingredients



(Note: The Simply Earth coconut oil is very firm.  If you are using a coconut oil that is soft at room temperature, decrease  the almond oil to 1 teaspoon.)



Tools


Directions


Step #1


Melt beeswax and coconut oil in a double boiler.




Step #2


Once it's melted, carefully remove from heat.  Stir in the almond oil and essential oils.




Step #3


Carefully pour into lip balm tubes.  If there is any left over, I pour it into a small mold and use it as a solid lotion.  I had quite a bit left over and could have made three tubes since I used more almond oil, but I'll use it as a solid lotion at my desk.



This recipe is from the Simply Earth Essential Oil Recipe Box Starter Box.  If the monthly box sells out, you'll get the Starter Box.  The following month, you'll get the regular box subscription.

Or you can order just the Starter Box to get what you need to make this Lemon Meringue Essential Oil Lip  Balm plus 5 more DIY recipes.

Simply Earth also just released a full course to learn more about essential oils.  For one price, you get 12 full sized oil, 3 carrier oils, beeswax and other supplies, containers, a diffuser, and more.  You'll also get access to their Essential Oil Hero Course that explains everything you need to know to get started with essential oils.
