2 Ingredient Homemade Lip Balm
  • 1 part organic beeswax {for example, .50 oz}
  • 2 parts organic coconut oil {for example, 1.00 oz}
  • Optional: essential oils, honey, beet root/hibiscus powder, etc.
  1. Use dedicated materials for all the following.
  2. Grate the beeswax.
  3. Melt the wax low and slow in a double boiler or in a heat proof vessel in the microwave. Use a vessel with a spout like a measuring cup. Heat until just melted, no more.
  4. Stir in the oil.
  5. Wait 5-10 seconds to stir in the optional add-ins if using.
  6. Carefully pour into desired containers and allow to set for 30 minutes.
About .10 oz wax to .20 oz oil yields one tube.
Mine last for about a year when stored in a jar in a dark, cool place.
Steer away from camphor or menthol as they dry out the lips.
