DIY Lip Balm



1/2 ounce beeswax

1/2 ounce coconut oil

1/4 ounce shea butter

1/4 ounce cocoa butter

30 drops essential oils (my faves are spearmint and wild orange)

Lip balm containers (I buy these)


  • Place everything, but essential oil and vanilla extract into glass measuring cup or bowl, or mason jar.
  • Fill large saucepan with 1-1.5 inches of water. Bring to boil.
  • Once boiling, place glass measuring cup in center of saucepan.
  • Stir every few minutes until ingredients have melted and are combined.
  • Once all wax is melted, remove from heat and let sit 3 minutes.
  • Add essential oils
  • Pour mixture into lip balm containers and let cool.
