Hi friends! Yesterday, I told you about how I made homemade peppermint lip balm using my essential oils. In case you missed it, you can check it out here.

I couldn’t wait to share this incredibly easy recipe with you! I’ve always been super picky when it comes to lip balm. I used to use Blistex Naturals, but they no longer sell it in stores. I had to start buying it in bulk online. Needless to say, it was no longer convenient. Plus, since I’ve been more aware about the ingredients I put on my body, it made sense to start making my own. Boy, am I glad I did! Not only is it super easy to make, but I can control the ingredients that go into making it (and it saves some money)! It’s a win-win situation!

The other great thing about this recipe is that the possibilities of flavors/scents are endless! I’m thinking of making a lavender lemon lip balm next.

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • 3 tbsp. Beeswax (the little pellets are best because they melt pretty quickly)
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa butter
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 10 drops of Young Living peppermint essential oil (like I said, you can really use any kind of Young Living essential oil scent)

Directions:

1. Melt beeswax, coconut butter, coconut oil together using a metal double-broiler (I also read that you could place a metal bowl inside of a slow cooker if you don’t have a double-broiler…be careful as it is very easy to burn yourself when melting the wax & oils).

2. Once melted, add essential oils.

3. Using a dropper (or small funnel), pour into lip balm tubes. Let harden. Attach a cute label & enjoy!

As a lip balm addict, I can honestly tell you this lip balm is moisturizing and leaves your lips feeling so soft!
