Can I mix vaseline with coconut oil?
Useful note, with respect to the choice and value of the ingredients: As Nel137 pointed out in the comments, “petroleum jelly & mineral oil are not moisturizers. They only form a protective barrier that prevents moisture from escaping the skin. The coconut oil will moisturize, so the combination works.”
Can I apply coconut oil on my lips overnight?

What happens if we apply coconut oil on lips daily?
The lauric acid in coconut oil has nourishing properties that seep into your skin. Some coconut oils absorb quickly, providing moisture to heal dry, chapped lips. Keep in mind that coconut oil can only do so much. You’ll want to determine the cause of your chapped lips so you can prevent it again in the future.
Can you make lip balm without coconut oil?
I make my homemade lip balm WITHOUT coconut oil (It’s not my favorite for face and beauty products, to be honest). Instead, I use a combination of beeswax, shea butter, cocoa butter, almond and jojoba oils. A couple times a day, tops, and your lips will be silky smooth.
Does coconut oil make your lips bigger?
Plump your lips naturally with a coconut oil and peppermint oil balm. Mix 1 tablespoon (15 mL) of coconut oil with 5 or 6 small drops of peppermint oil in a small bowl. Peppermint oil is technically an irritant, so it works as a natural lip plumper by stimulating blood flow to your lips and causing mild swelling.

What ingredients should not be in lip balm?

How do you harden homemade lip balm?
Using a syringe, fill each lip balm container as full as you can without overflowing. If it starts to harden before you’re finished filling the tubes, return the glass bowl to the microwave for 15 seconds to keep it melted. Once it solidifies ( about 5 minutes ) add your lip balm labels to the tubes and enjoy!
