    DIY Chamomile & Hemp Lip Balm Recipe

    Ingredients

    Method

    1. Place the camomile flowers into a medium glass jar. Pour in the hemp seed oil. Seal the jar and let it infuse overnight. Shake occasionally. The next day, strain the infused oil through a fine sieve or nut milk bag into another glass jar or jug. Squeeze out any excess oil. You should be left with about 2 tablespoons.
    2. Place a separate jug into a saucepan with about 5cm of water in it. Add the wax, shea butter and coconut oil. Turn heat to medium and stir until melted.
    3. Remove from heat. Add the infused hemp seed oil and essential oils and stir.
    4. Carefully pour the chamomile and hemp lip balm
      mixture into a 15ml reusable lip balm containers or lip balm tubes. Allow to cool and set.

    How To Use

    This recipe will make enough to fill approximately 15 x 15ml reusable lip balm containers. You could fill one 15ml container and store the remainder in a larger glass jar. When you are ready to refill your lip balm container, melt it down, refill and leave to set.

    For a subtle splash of colour, add 1/2 teaspoon of either red or pink clay just before adding the hemp and essential oils. Stir until completely dissolved.

    Keep in a cool spot. Store out of direct sunlight. Use within 6-9 months.
