Homemade lip balm with a hint of lavender and peppermint.
If you are needing a simple lip balm recipe, you have come to the right place. These are easy to make and everyone will love them.
I have been creating several different lip balms to give as gifts this Christmas. Who couldn’t use a good lip balm this winter? It is a little homemade to add to gifts.
Quick Tip: Make sure to have a kitchen scale on hand to measure out the ingredients.

Step 1: Measure out beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter and place them in your glass measuring cup. (photo shows each one individually)
Step 2: Fill your large saucepan with about 1 to 1 1/2 inches of water and bring the water to a boil.
Step 3: Once the water is boiling, place the glass measuring cup with the ingredients into the center of the large saucepan.
Step 4: Stir every few minutes until everything is melted.
Step 5: Once it is all melted, remove from heat and let it sit for 3 minutes. While waiting the 3 minutes, line up our lip balm containers so you can fill them.
Step 6: Add lavender and peppermint essential oil and stir.
Step 7: Pour mixture into the lip balm containers and let them cool before capping. Be careful not to over fill. It is easy to do, trust me.
Step 8: Once the lip balm is cooled, you can put the caps on and add labels. At the bottom of this post, you can get the labels I created for FREE!
