Homemade Lip Balm Recipe


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


  1. You'll need a double boiler so as not to burn the ingredients.*
  2. Place the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in the metal bowl or mason jar.
  3. Leave the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in the bowl/jar until they melt and turn into a liquid form. Once liquefied, 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 putting 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.
