Homemade Lip Balm

I absolutely love Homemade products and next on my list is this easy Homemade Lip Balm.

Homemade Lip Balm

I live in Sunny Southern California and right now we’re battling warm days and winds that are really taking a toll out of my skin and especially my lips.  Not a day goes by that my lips aren’t dried out and chapped and it’s really putting a burden on me.  Sure you can run out to the store and pick up some lip balm but do I really want to spend $5+ dollars on a little tin?  I decided it would be best to make my own Homemade Lip Balm that costs less than $5 to make and will last me months.

Homemade Lip Balm

What you need:

  • 1 Tbsp grated Beeswax
  • 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tsp Raw Honey
  • 5 Drops Lavender Essential Oil (optional)
  • Double Boiler
  • Hand Grater
  • Clear lip gloss containers (Found in Target travel section)

Directions:

Grate 1 tbsp of Beeswax and set aside.  Place your double boiler on the stove with water and place on medium heat and wait until it starts to boil.  Once it boils add in your beeswax, followed by your coconut oil and top off with a drizzle of Raw honey.  The mixture will melt very quickly and you want to stir several times during this process.  If you want to add in some essential oil now is the time to do this, I added in 5 drops of my favorite Lavender Essential Oil.  As soon as all the products are completely dissolved quickly remove from the stove and pour into your lip containers.  The Homemade Lip Balm will set in about 10 minutes and be ready to use.  Place the lip on your homemade lip balm and it’s good to go for a good 6 months.  Enjoy.

  1. I always thought homemade lip balm had a short shelf life, which was the main reason putting me off! But if it is good to go for 6 months, it is definitely worth trying it out. Thanks for the recipe! Regards
    1. It's definitely lasts a while as long as it isn't left out in the heat. Plus it's so easy to make and you can customize any scent you love! Enjoy and thanks for stopping by Mark!
  2. What happens when it goes bad? Does it go rancid or anything? Or is it just the texture? Is it bad to keep using it?
