DIY LIP BUTTER homemade recipe

That's my new favourite recipe for a wonderful lip butter (a little bit like the "Baby Lips", coloured and flavoured... but healthier and with just natural ingredients! xD) to make at home with few ingredients!
If you speak Italian I do recommend to watch my video: here. If you can't... no problem! :-) Just read below...

All you'll need (for 1 tube of lip butter) is:

- Natural Beeswax: 1/2 teaspoon
- Shea Butter: 1/2 teaspoon
- Cocoa Butter: 1/4 teaspoon
- Coconut Oil: 1/4 teaspoon
- Castor Oil: 1/2 teaspoon
- Vitamin E: 2 drops
- A tube or a container of your liking for the lip balm.
And if you want your butter to be flavoured & coloured:
- Natural Mica (cosmetic grade!) for colouring  (or you can use a little bit of a lipstick you like)
-  2 drops of aroma for lip gloss of your choice (of food flavouring... but it must be in OIL!)

First things first: a couple of hours (or more) before starting the preparation of your lip butter mix the mica with the castor oil and leave it to rest! This will make everything easier!
Another tip is to use a milk-frother to stir all the ingredients, and remember... you HAVE TO mix the ingredients thoroughly, milk-frother or not!

Let's start by melting the beeswax in a double boiler, and when the wax is almost melted add the shea butter, the coconut oil and the cocoa butter... stir everything while the mixture melts.
Last, when the ingredients are liquefied, add the castor oil that you have already mixed with the mica... and again stir, stir, stir!
Now remove the mixture from the heat, add the vitamin E and (if you want) the flavoured oil.
Carefully pour the mixture in your container of choice, and leave it to set for an hour (you can put it in the fridge if you want).

Ta-dah! Your lip butter is made! Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

I'm quite in love with this recipe: I have ordered just yesterday a lot of mica to try new colours... I can't wait to make more and to show you the results! >_<
