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.
Good morning Devon. Your lip balm sounds wonderful. I am already a subscriber to your blog. How do I get the printable labels?? Thanks for sharing your recipes
Good Morning! Connie, check your email. I have sent you the link. Thanks!
This is absolutely AWESOME!!! I had noooo idea that making lip balm was so easy! I totally have a love/hate relationship with lip balm because I’m not a huge fan of the added ingredients like alcohol and preservatives. I bet this feels so refreshing, can’t wait to give it a try. Thanks for sharing! <3
You’re welcome! Hope you enjoy it!
I’m a huge fan of Coconut, how would I go about achieving a coconut-vanilla lip balm?
Hmmmmm….Well it has coconut oil already in the recipe. You could make it like the Orange Creamsicle Lip Balm (since it has vanilla), but just do not add the orange essential oil.
Can I double the shea butter? I don’t have cocoa butter and I really want to make this ?
I have not made it without the cocoa butter. You can always try it. I don’t know how it will turn out.
Is there a way to print the recipe and instructions? I am a paper person!
I don’t have a printable version at this time.
