By Heather

I love making homemade lip balm, especially because I can't find the right flavors or tastes at the store! Have you ever wanted to make homemade lip balms yourself? Do you know how? Well now you do! I've got the top 7 homemade lip balms that you've got to try and make and they are super easy!

1 Luscious Lavender Lip Balm

Luscious Lavender Lip Balm Lavender is absolutely one of my favorite scents and it's so calming for your chapped lips! If you can't find the right lavender lip balm in the stores, why not go with homemade lip balm that smells just like lavender? This recipe is super easy to make and it's so good for your lips!

Ingredients:

4 Tbsp jojoba, almond, or olive oil
1 Tbsp grated beeswax or beeswax pearls
1 tsp honey
1/4 tsp vitamin E oil (or 3 punctured, squeezed out liquid vitamin E capsules)
7 drops lavender essential oil (or other essential oil)
1 tsp cocoa powder (optional)
1 tsp colored, natural lipstick (optional, if you want it to have a hint of color)

Preparation:

Warm the oils, beeswax and honey in a small, stainless steel pot or bowl. Be sure to warm it on VERY low heat. (You can use a double boiler, if you’d like.) Stir until the beeswax is completely melted. Remove from heat and quickly whisk in the essential oil, vitamin E, cocoa powder, and colored lipstick. Place the bottom of the bowl into a shallow pan of ice water and continue whisking quickly as you add the honey. Once the honey is incorporated, quickly transfer the balm into your lip balm container (tube or tin) and allow to set for 3 hours.

4 Coconut Lip Balm

Coconut Lip Balm This homemade lip balm is actually one of my complete favorites because I love, love, love the small and taste of coconut. If you're looking for a little bit of beach with your lip balm, this is it!

What You'll Need:

2 tablespoons beeswax (about 1 oz)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons shea butter
12 lip balm containers

A dropper

Optional: Add 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil or a couple drops of your favorite flavoring, such as chocolate or vanilla extract.

What to Do:

Melt beeswax in a small pan over low heat. Add coconut oil and shea butter, melting the ingredients together. Add your essential oils here.

Using a small medicinal dropper, pour the melted liquid into your lip balm containers. Add a few extra drops to the top after filling each container as the ingredients will shrink as they cool.

Cool completely to harden. Cover with cap and decorate or label if you'd like. Distribute as desired.

5 Honey Lip Balm

Honey Lip Balm Honey is another flavor that I absolutely love. Not only does it taste good, but this awesome homemade lip balm is also great to keep your lips in shape. The cool thing about this lip balm is you'll be able to lick it without worrying about any chemicals at all!

What you’ll need:

4 tablespoons beeswax, grated or finely chopped
2 tablespoons coconut oil
5-10 drops of essential oil of your choice
2 teaspoon honey (for flavor, optional)

What you’ll do with it:

Put some water in a pot (about 1½ cups) and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, place the grated beeswax and coconut oil in a glass container with a pour spout (a small glass measuring cup worked well for me) and put it in the water, double-boiler style. As the wax and oil melt, stir the mixture with a metal spoon to fully incorporate the two.

Once they’re completely melted, remove the glass container from the water (you’ll want to use oven mitts) and set on a flat, heat-safe work surface. Pour in your essential oil of choice and the honey if you’re using it, and stir well

Pour the mixture into your selected container. The lip balm is ready when it solidifies.
