Hello everyone! I just received my order from Bulk Apothecary so I thought I’d show you what I got. I’ve been wanting to make my own lip balm and lotions ever since watching some videos on YouTube, so I ordered a bunch of oils and butters so I could try it. Ok so I didn’t just get this stuff, I’ve had it for a little over a week. I’ve made a few lip balms and can’t wait to try some different recipes. So here’s a list of what I ordered:
Beeswax for the base. This is definitely a necessity so your lip balm isn’t like jelly (unless you like that).
- Shea Butter
- Cocoa Butter
- Coconut Oil (I got the wrong one so it doesn’t smell like coconut) 😦 If you order from this site make sure you get the extra virgin coconut oil not the 76 degree one unless you don’t want it to smell like coconut. I do so I will be ordering some more.
- Sweet Almond Oil
- Grapeseed oil
- Jojoba oil
- Essential oils: Grapefruit, Vanilla, Rosemary, and Sweet Orange
- And an unscented lotion base to make my own lotion. I haven’t worked with that yet but will soon.
I will be making some more lip balms soon and will be trying some lotion concoctions as well. I’ll keep you posted on the outcome. I will also be posting how I made them in case anyone wants to try it. 🙂
