Homemade Lip Balm Recipe

Lip Balm Recipe:

First, let me say that I purchased all the ingredients except for the coconut oil on Amazon. Nice and easy! This recipe will make enough to fill up 24 lip balm tubes, which is how many there was in the package.

  • 1/4 cup beeswax pellets
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1½ tsp vitamin E oil
  • Essential oils of your choice or vanilla extract

Start by adding the beeswax and coconut oil to a double boiler to melt them together. I used a glass measuring cup so that it would be easy to pour once they were melted.

Once the oil and wax have melted together, remove from heat and add the Vitamin E and stir.You can now fill up your lip balm containers and add about 5 drops of your essential oil of choice per tube. It’s messy, I recommend putting your tubes on a cookie sheet.

You will have to add a bit more of your oil and beeswax mix to make your tops smoother once it starts hardening.

That’s it! You are all done!
