This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! Over the years I have spent a lot of money on Chapstick and lip balms that I end up losing, washing/drying and are all filled with nasty ingredients. I absolutely LOVE this lip balm because, as with all the other recipes I have shared with you, it is inexpensive, so quick and easy to make and works great! Also, I have absolutely no worry with my young kids using it or “accidentally” eating half a tube. Please be aware that using citrus oils such as grapefruit, lemon or orange on your skin prior to exposure to the sun or other ultraviolet light may cause a skin reaction or increased redness.

DIY All Natural Lip Balm
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 T. Beeswax pellets
  • 2 T. Shea Butter
  • 2 T. Coconut Oil
  • 5-7 drops Essential Oil of your choice (i.e. Aura Cacia Peppermint oil)
  • Lip balm tubes
  • Medicine dropper
  • Toothpick
Instructions
  1. In small pot, melt beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil.
  2. If using different kinds of essential oils, make sure to mark the bottoms of your tubes so you know which oil is in which tube.
  3. Turn burner off but leave pan on hot burner so the mixture does not harden.
  4. Carefully use the medicine dropper to fill a tube halfway with melted mixture, add drops of essential oil, stir with toothpick and fill the rest of the tube with melted mixture.
  5. Once the tubes cool and harden, the mixture will sink and there will be a space at the top. Make sure to leave a little of the melted mixture so you can go back and fill that spot in each tube.
  6. Replace covers once the tube is completely cooled.
