Let’s get started making this Homemade Lip Balm!
You will love his easy this Shea Butter Lip Balm recipe is. It is so moisturizing and easy to make.
It’s the perfect remedy for dry winter skin.
How to Make Homemade Lip Balm:
It’s so easy. You will not believe how simple and quick this is!
Ingredients for DIY Lip Balm without Shea Butter:
- ½ Cup Grated Beeswax
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp Almond Extract or Almond Oil or essential oils
- Clear Lip Container (found in target travel section or HERE)
- Double Boiler (I recommend these)
How to Make Lip Balm with Beeswax:
1. To make your Homemade Lip Balm you will need a double boiler to melt down your beeswax and coconut oil. I highly recommend one of these boilers.
2. Fill up the bottom portion of your double boiler with water and set on high fire and bring to a boil. While you’re waiting for your water to begin boiling you need to take your beeswax sticks and grate them up finely.
This will help them melt much faster and smoother.
3. Pour your beeswax into the top portion of the double boiler and add in your coconut oil. Allow it to melt down to a liquid and then add in your almond extract or essential oils.
4. Give it a quick stir, remove from heat and immediately pour into your clear lip container.
5. The liquid will set up to a lip balm base in about 5 minutes. Once it’s solid it’s ready to use, enjoy.

Going to try the lip balm. What do you use to add color to it?
I have seen where some people add kool-aid to it.
To add colour you can use an old lip stick or scrape an unwanted eye shaddow into warm oil.
Love this idea going make my friends some these for Christmas this year hah .Love it
I’ve just tried this and it worked as a charm.
I halved the ingredients and I added 3 drops of vitamin E oil to my mixture. Instead of almond extract I used blueberry essential oil.
I also tried to experiment adding some pink food colouring but it didn’t dissolve. It stayed at the bottom of my mixing jar so didn’t get into my lip balm (which was good cause I didn’t want pink chunks in it).
Thanks for this easy recipe!
Carrie I tried your lip balm recipe .I thought it was great. Made it for my daughters and Granddaughter Thank you again for the recipe
I put my ingredients in a cleaned out pasta sauce jar & sit it in a pam of simmering water with the lid just resting so no water gets in. I pick it up once in a while using a dry towel close the lid down & swirl it. When I’m done filling my containers I throw the jar out – no clean-up!
Where will i find the beeswax?
Where do u buy the beeswax?
I get mine on amazon. Thank you!
I buy it at Mountain Rose Herbs.
We buy it directly from beekeeping personnel
Oh great idea – Thanks for sharing!
What can you add to it to make a flavor lip balm. I love this idea
Kool aid or gelatin mix
I was thinking of adding peppermint essential oil to make a candy cane lip balm! with a drop of green food dye. The possibilities are endless with essential oils, blue raspberry and vanilla would make cotton candy!
They sell lip balm flavors at Bulk Apothecary.com
Wooooow me encantó tanto!
Muchas gracias por compartir tus recetas con nosotras!
If you have a Sprouts Store nearby. I find they have all u need for any E O. Recipe s.
Definitely trying this.
Thank you for sharing.
Great simple recipe, feels good.
Living in Arizona I go through a lot of lip balm, so glad I found your recipe.
Next time I will try it with some flavor.
If I wanted a lavender or fruit smell would I just add essential oils? How can I change the color?
You can add essential oils as long as they are the ones that can be ingested. On the color, you can use food dye or mica for the color on the lip balm. Thank you.
How many tubes of lip balm will this recipe make?
This makes about 3-4 depending on how much you put in each container.
i think there is a typo in the list of ingredients. i made this and had to keep adding coconut oil because 1/2 cup grated bees wax waa too much. i used the bees wax beads but should not have made such a diff. i ended up with so much lip balm i could open up my own business! hope this was helpful.
How much more coconut oil did you add.
I tried this recipe and it is a little difficult to get the product on my finger. I think it needs another oil or butter maybe. I did add peppermint and the smell is wonderful.
Carrie, will this consistency stand up in a roll-up lip balm tube?
Do I add the essential oil instead of the almond oil? Or all together? And how much of the essential oils should I use?
You can use essential oils instead of Almond oils. I would use 2-3 drops. Thanks.
Coconut oil will start melting once it gets warmer than room temperature I believe so will this mix melt if it’s a little warmer than usual? I’m worried the balm will turn into liquid like coconut oil does sometimes.
The beeswax helps the lip balm stay in the solid form so it won’t melt at room temperature. I have made this several times and have never had an issue with it melting. Thank you!
I’m having a little trouble getting the product on my finger to apply. Can I add something else that will make it a little easier?
The beeswax makes it thicker, I would recommend adding more coconut oil until it’s the consistency that you prefer. If it has already hardened, you can transfer to a microwave safe bowl and re-melt it down to add in more coconut oil. Thanks!
Do you measure the coconut oil in solid form and then melt it. Or do you measure it already melted? Mine turned out very wet and oily….I measured mine solid then melted it???!!
I measure the coconut oil in its sold form. If it’s very wet and not solidifying, I would add more beeswax as this is what helps it turn into a solid. Thanks.
I’m going to give this recipe a try!!! I Love EO’s and I make plenty of blends with them! This simple recipe sounds to good to be true 🤗!! I will post an update, once my product is made!!
I hope that you love it and can’t wait to hear what you think!
