Japanese Matcha Green Tea Lip Balm Recipe


Make your own DIY Matcha Green Tea Lip Balm!

The lip balm contains beeswax which gives the balm a lovely thick consistency, pure Shea butter for a mega moisture injection and sweet almond oil to give those lips a lovely soft feeling. I didn’t add any essential oils to the batch I made but you could always add a few drops of vanilla, grapefruit, orange or any edible oil. It really is lovely and so easy you should give it a try!

Ingredients  (makes 2 – 4 tins):
  • 1 tablespoon of Shea butter
  • 1 tablespoon of beeswax pellets
  • 2 tablespoons of sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Green Tea powder
  • 10 drops of an edible essential oil (optional)
Method
  1. Melt shea butter, beeswax and sweet almond oil in a heat-safe bowl over a pan of boiling water
  2. Mix ingredients well as they are melting
  3. Once all ingredients have melted entirely remove from the heat.
  4. Stir in your Matcha Green Tea powder and essential oils quickly before the mixture starts to set
  5. Pour mixture into your tins
  6. Leave the mixture for around 1 hour to set by this point they should be ready to go!
