Homemade Lip Balm Recipe


  • 5 mg coconut oil
  • 10 mg beeswax
  • 20 mg shea butter
  • a few drops vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 5 drops of essential oil I used vanilla


  1. You'll need a double boiler so as not to burn the ingredients.*
  2. Once the water is boiling, place the beeswax and shea butter in the metal bowl or mason jar (in that order), one at a time.

  3. Leave the beeswax and shea butter in the bowl/jar until they melt and turn into a liquid form. Once liquefied, add the coconut oil, turn off the burner and remove from heat.

  4. After you've removed the oils from the heat, add the vitamin E and essential oil(s). Add the mixture to your tubes/jars.* Voila! Your homemade lip balm recipe is complete.

Recipe Notes

*You can make a double boiler by puttingĀ some water in a saucepan/pot, turning the burner on medium to high and placing a metal bowl on top of the pan. Alternatively, you can place a glass jar (mason jar) in the saucepan.

*You'll have to be quick adding the vitamin E and essential oils and with pouring the mixture into the tubes as the ingredients will solidify quite quickly.
