How to make natural and best lip balm for pink or red lips
- Rinse beetroot under running water and peel with a sharp knife.
- Grate it into smaller strands, then place in a blender and blend into a paste without adding water.
- Use a fine strainer to and squeeze out all the water from the beet until you are left with only the fiber.
- If you wish, add about 4 tablespoons of water to the pulp and mix, then strain again. Strain the beet juice again with cheesecloth to make sure it has no residual in it.
- Pour the water you have strained into a pan and place on medium-low heat to boiling. Use a small spatula to stir from time to make sure it doesn’t burn or dry out too quickly.
- You will notice the water reducing and thickening as it boils, bring the heat on low and keep cooking until the content thickens and reduces to a tablespoon
- Take it off from heat and pour it out of the pan to cool in a bowl.
- Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to the beet paste and gently mix using a plastic spoon. This might take about a minute or so to get all the ingredients well combined.
- Pour the mixture into a small lip balm container and place it in the fridge for 25 minutes to set. Once it has set, it will become smooth and thick like the regular lip balm.
- Start using your homemade lip balm for natural pink lips or red lips
You can store it in a small container and use it whenever you need it. It can last for up to 3 months without preservatives.
