DIY Organic Beauty Recipe For Your Lips with Marigold and Rose

As the colder weather moves in, so do the chapped lips, right? Your skin, including your lips face some harsh elements all year long, but when colder temperatures, wind and drier air come together in the fall and winter, chapped lips easily take center stage. They need some TLC and you can treat them to some love with organic skin care.

Homemade Natural Beauty Products Are Good To Your Skin

Did you know our lips are the only area of our body that only has one layer of skin? Because of that single layer of thin skin, and our tendency to lick our lips, this tender area chaps faster and more severely than anywhere else. So, how can you keep your lips soft and plump while still adhering to an organic skin care regimen?  Lip balm, right? Not so fast. 

Homemade Natural Beauty Products Are Good To Your Skin

Not all lip balms help moisturize your lips. Some can even increase the dryness of your lips. Then you add more balm, which further dries your lips and on it goes. To avoid this problem, you need a lip balm that isn’t drying, but actually adds moisture and protects your lips. What’s a girl to do? 

Dr. Spiezia has a solution. He knows that homemade, organic beauty products are good for your skin. He’s created an entire line of 100% organic skin care products for this very reason. While, you’re always safe choosing an Inlight product, like Inlight’s Deep Moisturizer, which does wonders for moisturizing the lines around your eyes and lips. But, Dr. Spiezia takes an extra step so you can have a homemade, organic lip balm to keep your kisser soft and luscious. Here is his very own recipe for an organic lip balm you can make yourself.

Recipe For Your Lips

Many commercial lip balms use petroleum jelly as a base. As lovers of organic products, this just won’t work. Although petroleum jelly is approved by the FDA, did you know it was first discovered by workers on an oil rig? This is NOT something you want to use on your lips. You can learn more about heavy metals in commercial beauty products in my report, “Why YOU Don’t Have Radiant Skin (and what you need to do about it)”  Instead, Dr. Spiezia suggests using beeswax for your foundational product. Beeswax is 100% natural and has been used for hundreds of years.

To make your homemade lip balm, you will need the following utensils:

  • 10 - 10ml jars and lids (aluminium or bakelite)
  • 2 small glass measuring cups, like a Pyrex 2-cup measure
  • Food thermometer
  • 2 saucepans
  • 1 stainless steel spoon
  • goggles and latex gloves

Make sure your utensils and containers are all clean and dry.

DIY Organic Beauty Products Start With 100% Organic Ingredients

Here are the ingredients for your lip balm. You should be able to find all of these items at your local health food store. You can also order them online.

  • 30 grams (approx 1 ounce) coconut oil. This is for moisture
  • 25 grams (8/10 oz) Shea Butter. Shea butter repairs your skin.
  • 16 grams (approx. ½ oz) White Beeswax. This is used as a protective barrier.
  • 10 grams (approx 3/10 oz) Calendula oil. Calendula oil is often diluted in sunflower oil. It is used for its healing properties.
  • 18 grams (6/10 oz) jojoba oil. Jojoba oil is rich in antioxidants, especially Vitamin E
  • 24 drops Rose essential oil. *dilute in 10% jojoba oil* Rose Oil is an astringent and also repairs the skin. You can substitute Peppermint Essential oil for the Rose oil. Use 15 drops of peppermint. This will give you a refreshing, energizing scent.

Use gloves and, if possible, eye protection, when handling and pouring ingredients..

  1. Put the beeswax in one of the small glass measuring cups.
  2. Put all other ingredients, EXCEPT THE ESSENTIAL OIL, in the other measuring cup.
  3. Put an inch of water into each saucepan and place one of the measuring cups in each pan.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. As the beeswax melts, check the temps of your contents. They should be approximately 65 degrees C or 149 degrees F.
  6. Carefully remove the measuring cups from the heat and from the saucepans. Do not let any water into the cups with your ingredients.
  7. Gently pour the melted beeswax into the other measuring cup, with the oils and stir carefully.
  8. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Add the essential oils and stir again.
  9. Pour mixture evenly into your 10 ml containers.
  10.  Let mixture cool completely. It will begin to become solid in a few minutes. Let cool for an hour. You may begin to use the lip balm. Store tightly covered
