Did you know that cannabinoid hemp oil from Colorado can be turned into lip balm? Apart from nourishing and hydrating dry and chapped lips, when you use CBD hemp oil as a lip balm, it also has the capability to regenerate cells that have been damaged by sun exposure and harsh chemicals. It works similarly to collagen, in the sense that it makes your body repair itself from within by promoting regrowth instead of leaving the job to an external substance.
Also, it's a fun DIY project that you can do at home! Follow this recipe for CBD hemp oil infused lip balm:
150 g beeswax
150 mL castor oil
150 mL almond
½ C + 1 tsp coconut oil
1 ½ tsp + 10 drops vitamin e oil
1 ½ tsp + 10 drops essential oil OR use 50 drops of CBD oil
2. Measure out your Beeswax, castor oil, almond oil, coconut oil and place into the double boiler. You need to wait until the wax and oil melt and homogenize.
3. Once the concoction has melted, drop in your Vitamin E oil. Mix until it's fully incorporated.
4. Turn off the heat and add in essential oils and CBD oil. Note that the more essential oils and/or CBD hemp oil you add, the softer the lip balm will become once it's cured. Lessen the amount of coconut oil if you want to add more essential oils or CBD into your lip balm.
5. Take a clean pipette and suck up the melted lip balm and fill your lip balm containers. This type of lip balm is better stored in a lidded pot in case it melts. If ever this happens you can pop it back in the fridge until it sets again.
6. Once filled, you'll see divots in the tops of the containers. Fill your pipette again and add lip balm to the top until it creates a dome. Or, if the divot doesn't bother you, just leave it!
7. Leave overnight in the fridge to cure.
8. This step is optional: wipe off containers, add stickers/labels.
This lip balm will last you a good six months after opening and keep for up to a year; you can preserve the shelf life by keeping it in the fridge and using your fingers to apply the lip balm instead of swiping it directly on your lips.
