Peppermint Rose Lip Balm

This recipe has been kindly provided to DIY Beauty Diva by Jan from the Nerdy Farm Wife.

This Peppermint Rose Lip Balm is a step up from the basic lip balm recipe because it uses a rose petal oil infusion at its base. Making a herbal infusion is a great DIY beauty skill and this recipe takes most of us back to our childhood when we collected rose petals to make potions.

Alkanet root imparts a deep red colour to our DIY cosmetics and the beauty of using it in this lip balm is that you can use a little bit to get a pink tinted lip balm, or a lot to make a deep red coloured lip balm. The peppermint essential oil gives this recipe a lovely freshness but you can also add rose geranium essential oil to stay in-keeping with the rose and pink theme.
