Ingredients

  • 3 TablespoonsCoconut Oil I recommend this natural, affiliate link
  • 1 Tablespoon Beeswax I recommend this all natural, affiliate link
  • 20 Drops Essential Oils These are the dietary essential oils I highly recommend
  • Materials Needed for Homemade Lip Balm
  • 10 tubes for lip balm I recommend these tubes, affiliate link
  • Wash and clean your lip balm tubes. Make sure they are completely dry before using them.
  • 8 oz Mason jar for melting
  • Pot of Water for melting
  • Pipette

Instructions

  1. Start with a double boiler or I just use a mason jar in a hot pot of water. Melt the beeswax and coconut oil in the jar.
  2. While the ingredients are melting, get all the tubes ready for the the melted concoction. Place two drops of your favorite essential oil in each tube. I made orange, lemon, lime and peppermint. These are the only oils I recommend to be used around the mouth area. They are safe for dietary consumption.
  3. With a pipette, or anything you can use to safely pour melted ingredients, fill the tubes nearly to the top. It starts to solidify quickly once in the tubes. So work quickly. Adding the essential oils first, allows them to mix thoroughly with the melted oil and wax. It is ok to mix the oil in with the melted liquid, if you are making a big batch of all one flavor. Use about 20 drops for this size batch. I wanted to make several flavors, so this method works perfect.
  4. Allow the liquid to cool for several hours before first use. I printed some cute little labels for each of the tubes to give to friends and my kids.
