The Easiest DIY Lip Balm Recipe

grapefruit peppermint lip balm

Some of the most well-known inventions were simply mistakes made by scientists on a different quest.  Without these happy mishaps we would be living in a world without silly putty, slinkys, or post-it notes – you know, the important stuff.

I was trying to make a lotion when I ended up with the greatest lip balm! (Although I didn’t realize I had lip balm at first, I just thought I had a jar full of mistake) It’s emollient and shiny and perfect for soothing chapped lips, or giving your non-chapped lips just a little shine.  And it is super easy to make.  You can add any essential oils that suit your tastes.  My current batch is a Grapefruit/Peppermint oil combo, although Lavender/Peppermint is always a favorite too…get creative!

Simple Lip Balm Recipe

  1. DIY Lip BalmMelt coconut oil and beeswax over low heat in a jar placed in a small pot of water (basically a double boiler)
  2. Add olive oil and stir until everything is melted and combined
  3. Remove from heat and add essential oils
  4. Use dropper to fill lip balm tubes or tins, work quickly since this recipe begins to solidify pretty fast
  5. This recipe makes about 32 tubes of lip balm

That’s all there is to it!  Now you’ve got lip balm for days or a lot of lip balm for sharing with friends.

* I only use and recommend therapeutic grade essential oils from Young Living.
