Homemade Lip Balm

This was one of the first homemade body products that we made and it was a huge success.  This is a pure and natural lip balm and goes on silky smooth and makes your lips feel so soft and moisturized.  One recipe made 10 tubes of lip balm!  Making your own lip balm saves a significant amount of money over purchasing a “natural” brand at a store, it’s so easy to make and you have control over exactly what goes into it.  It’s an all around benefit to everyone.


Homemade Lip Balm


2 TBS beeswax, grated or pastilles (I use pastilles to make it easier)
1 TBS coconut oil
1 TBS sweet almond oil
1 TBS cocoa butter
10 to 12 drops essential oil (Peppermint is yummy! Also try lime or orange)


Using the double boiler method, place a glass jar into a pot of room temperature water.  The water only needs to be a couple inches deep.

Measure all ingredients into the jar, except essential oils.

Bring the water to a simmer over medium heat. Stir the ingredients occasionally until melted.

Add essential oil and stir well.

Use a medicine dropper or small funnel to pour liquid into lip balm tubes.  Be sure to fill completely because the lip balm will shrink slightly as it cools.


Be creative with the essential oil you choose.  I use peppermint and love it.  Some other options might be wild orange/peppermint or lime.

  1. Great recipe! You have been pinned! :)

  2. I made my first chapstick ever at a make-you-own beauty product party a few months ago. I’m totally obsessed with chapstick and my homemade version is the best. I’m almost ready to replace it. Thanks for an easy recipe!
