Easy DIY Lip Balm

Living in high and dry Colorado can really do a number on lips and skin.  I tend to use a lot of lip balm and have been able to get by with what I already had on hand up until recently, I've just started to run low so have started making my own, and its super easy!


  1. 1 part grated beeswax
  2. 2 parts coconut oil
  3. 2 parts shea or coco butter
  4. 15-20 drops of essential oil of choice (optional)
    • I used lavender
  5. 1 pinch dried flowers of choice (optional)
    • these are really more for aesthetics than anything else but they should continue 


  1. pour about an inch of water into a pan
  2. place a small glass jar into the pan and set stove heat to medium
  3. once warm, add beeswax, coconut oil, and shea/coco butter
  4. once all components are melted add in the essential oil
  5. Pour into reusable jars and let cool completely (1-2 hours) before using

And that's it! Enjoy your new, non-toxic, homemade lip balm!
