{diy} luscious lip balm


Have you ever made homemade lip balm before? It is {seriously} one of the easiest and quickest homemade beauty products you can make. It took me less than five minutes to make over 20 tubes!

Well, except this last time. I had an extra six little hands in my kitchen, so it took me slightly longer. But still, so easy and my kids love helping!

My 22-month old daughter has been fascinated with lip stick, lip gloss, and lip balm lately, and every chance she gets she grabs some of mine, and smears it all over her {precious} little face! Since I’d much prefer that what goes on her skin is all-natural and safe, I hand her our homemade lip balm, and let her have fun! What doesn’t make it on her lips, can surely do no harm to her. So now, whenever our naturally adorable little girl wants to be a little glamorous, she certainly {and safely} can! My boys love it too, and each one has a few tubes on their nightstands, and often in their pockets!


  • lip balm tubes
  • double boiler
  • utensil to stir {I just use a popsicle stick to skip the messy clean up}


  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon organic beeswax pellets
  • 1/2 teaspoon nourishing oil {almond, jojoba, or olive}
  • 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil {my favorites for lip balm: peppermint, lavender and lime, or eucalyptus!}


  • Heat all ingredients in your double boiler over low heat.
  • When all is melted, remove from heat and add the drops of essential oils. I usually wait a few minutes until the mixture has cooled just a bit.
  • Using stirring utensil, mix in essential oils.
  • Pour into lip balm containers and let cool for a few minutes.

Viola! That’s it.. Your lips will thank you :)

    Looks awesome and easy! About how many tubes does the recipe as written fill?

      It is! I’d say it makes about 10 tubes! I wasn’t too precise when I made it last.. my three kids were helping and it got a little crazy ;)
