Coconut Oil Lip Balm Recipe - Made With Essential Oils

Coconut Oil Lip Balm Recipe - Made With Essential Oils

Got dry, chapped lips? Treat your lips to this all natural, homemade lip balm and say goodbye to chapping.

I love making my own beauty products, not only is it great for natural living, it is also rewarding and fun! This DIY beauty recipe takes only a few ingredients and about 15 minutes to make. So, NO EXCUSES!

We choose coconut oil for the base of our recipe because it has many health benefits. It will get your lips soft and revived. It is also very healing as well as moisturizing to dry skin. Coconut oil works great as a lip gloss too because it leaves a nice shine.

If you are allergic to coconuts you could try shea butter, olive oil or jojoba oil instead as a substitute.

For natural coloring of our lip balm we used burts bees lip shimmer in apricot. You can use any favorite lipstick brand you prefer to tint your balm or omit this step completely. I think it adds a nice touch, especially for gift giving.

Essential oils are fabulous in this recipe because they can add in additional benefits. We used tangerine oil for a Citrus Lip Balm (wild orange would work too). Here are some other great essential oil options for lip balm recipes:

Coconut Oil & Beeswax Lip Balm: omit essential oils completely

Healing Lip Balm: use 10 drops of lavender essential oil

Invigorating Peppermint Lip Balm: use 10 drops of peppermint essential oil

Cleansing Lip Balm: use 5 drops of tea tree oil and 5 drops of lemon oil

DIY Lip Balm Recipe:


1. Melt beeswax and coconut oil together using double boiler method. Place both into glass pyrex measuring cup and place measuring cup into pan with gently boiling water.

2. Stir with popsicle stick.

3. Once melted, remove from heat.

4. Stir in slice of lipstick if desired to tint lip balm.

5. Mix in drops of essential oil.

6. Pour evenly into four lip balm containers. Allow to cool completely, place lids and labels on (see below how to get our free printable labels).

To use, apply small amount to finger and rub onto lips. Shelf life is up to 6 months (less if the ingredients you used expire before then). Store in a cool, dry place away from sun and heat.
