DIY all-natural mango lip balm 

Despite the scorching sun ☀️ there is something I look forward to 😍 this season – what else could it be other than the sweet and juicy mangoes! No wonder it’s our <Indian 🇮🇳> national fruit… My love for mangoes made me experiment and so here comes the all-natural mango lip 👄 balm 😊.

But since I do not use preservatives, chemicals, artificial flavours and colours this was a challenge for me until I found the spray dried mango powder with shelf life of a year! 

Ingredients:

  • Grated Beeswax 
  • Raw & pure Cocoa butter
  • Raw & pure Shea butter 
  • Coldpressed & virgin organic coconut oil 
  • Coldpressed organic sweet almond oil
  • Coldpressed organic castor oil
  • Organic ghee
  • Spray dried mango powder 

How to prepare?

  • Follow my all-natural super-moisturising tinted lip balm recipe and instead of vanilla pod n alkanet root powder add a tsp of the spray dried mango powder. This will give a light mango fragrance & a golden yellow tint to the mixture.
  • Then as usual filter using a metal mesh into the mini glass jar.

However if you are not in a DIY mode, I do sell a very limited of these on my facebook buy sell group – eco friendly ma. Interested folks do join the group!
