Homemade lipbalm.

I dag har det blåst og regnet som en skikkelig høststorm. 
Ikke vær til å gjøre noe i hagen, og det ser ut til at de fleste urtene jeg hadde planer om å høste regner bort.
Istedet har jeg heklet litt ekstra i dag, og bunken med bestemorruter vokser :)

I ettermiddag har jeg laget leppepomade. Hjemmelaget leppepomade er enkelt og raskt å lage, og virker mye bedre enn de man får kjøpt i butikken.
Vanligvis lager jeg leppepomade av bivoks og solsikkeolje, som blir en nydelig leppepomade med god virkning, men i dag har jeg prøvd ut en ny og litt mer avansert oppskrift.  

30 g bivoks, 45 g kokosnøttolje, 15 gram sheasmør og 30 g jojobaolje.


Today has been rainy and windy, it's been like a real autumn storm.
No day for working in the garden or for picking herbs. (Now it seems that most herbs I was planning to harvest are lost to the rain).
Instead I have done more crochet today, and the pile of granny squares is growing :)

In the evening I made lip balm. Homemade lip balm is quick and easy to make, and in my opinion it work much better than store bought ones.
I use to make lip balm from just beeswax and sunflower oil, which is very nice, but today I tried a new recipe with more ingredients.

1 oz beeswax 1,5 oz coconut oil, 0,5 oz shea butter, 1 oz jojoba oil.



Bivoks, kokosnøttolje og sheasmør smeltes over vannbad.

Melt the beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter in a double boiler.



Når det er smeltet tilsett jojobaoljen, rør godt og ta av varmen. (Tilsett evt om ønsket noen dråper essensiell olje. Jeg tilsatte appelsinolje).

Once melted add the jojoba oil. Stir well and remove from the stove. (Add some drops of essential oil of your choice of desired. I added essential orange oil).



Helles raskt på tuber og settes til avkjøling.
La avkjøles helt før korkene settes på.

Etter litt klin fikk jeg til slutt fylt 23 tuber. Resultatet ser fint ut, og de dufter nydelig :)
Leppepomadene bør oppbevares i kjøleskap for best holdbarhet.


Pour quickly into containers.
Let cool off completely before putting the caps on the containers.

It filled 23 lip balm containers. Pouring into the containers is always a bit messy, but the result was very nice, and they have a lovely scent :)
Homemade lip balms should be stored in the fridge for best durability.

When I first saw your photograph, I thought you were making sweetcorn soup! Never seen lip balm containers for sale. I used to make it (using a ready made base unfortunately) and pour it into small round glass containers.

Takk for besøk og hyggelige kommentarer :)

Thanks for stopping by and for your nice comments :)

Kristin: I totally agree; these are so fun to make and they are much better than the store bought ones.
No, I never made herbal lip balm, only herbal salves.
