When bees gather nectar, they usually build their nests first, and beeswax is the main material for their nests. It can actually be seen in many skin care products we use, especially beeswax lip balm. Whether in winter or summer, the use of beeswax lip balm is very common.
Beeswax is a substance secreted by bees and specially used to build honeycombs. It has natural antibacterial properties, so it is not easy to deteriorate. It is commonly used in skin care products to increase hardness and moisturizing effect. It is a pure natural moisturizer. This ingredient has been used in cosmetics for two thousand years. It can form a protective film on the surface of the skin to prevent the skin from being damaged by external environmental stimuli. Almost all lipsticks and lip balm have beeswax ingredients.
When you make your own beeswax lipstick, you can add your favorite olive oil and other essential oils, such as lavender essential oil with a light floral scent, and add 4-8 drops of pure plant essential oil for every 10ml of lip balm. This can increase the moisture of the lipstick.
Materials: 5ml (1 teaspoon) of beeswax, 40ml (8 teaspoons) of natural vegetable oil, olive oil is recommended. Buy: beeswax, chemical material store; coconut oil, chemical material store.
Cost: about 1 yuan per 50ml beeswax olive oil lipstick.
Production: The first step is to pour olive oil into a measuring cup.
In the second step, add beeswax to olive oil.
In the third step, put the measuring cup containing the olive oil and beeswax into a boiling pot, heat it over water until the beeswax is completely melted, and the color of the melted solution is slightly darker than that of pure olive oil.
The fourth step is to add vitamin E after melting. Use scissors to cut it first, and then squeeze the solution in.
The fifth step is to add honey at a fast speed. If necessary, put it in the pot and continue to heat and stir, otherwise the honey will not melt into the olive oil and will form agglomerates.
Step 6: Add plant essential oils. After adding and mixing, you are almost done.
The seventh step is to pour the finished solution into the lipstick tube. If you don't need essential oils, pour a part of it into the lipstick tube before adding essential oils.
The last step is to cover the lipstick tube filled with the solution, and then put it in the freezer of the refrigerator for 10 minutes, and you are done.
