Today I am going to share my easy natural lip balm recipe. This DIY project will have you making your own all natural lip balm in just a few minutes. This recipe is a lip balm moisturizer that works wonders on my lips during our cold Montana winters. And the best part? It can be made with three simple ingredients in five easy steps.
A long time lip balm addict, it wasn’t until two years ago that I first ventured into figuring out how to make all natural lip balm. I was amazed at how easy it was! It also helps to save money because making your own natural lip balm at home costs a fraction of the price to buy it at the store. This cost is even lower if you reuse old lip balm tubes and don’t purchase new ones.
I’ve seen a lot of lip balm recipes online that call for ingredients that the average person does not have at home unless you regularly make homemade body products. While ingredients like jojoba oil, avocado oil and Vitamin E are probably quite lovely for your skin, I never have them on hand and don’t have the time or money to drive into town trying to find them or order them online.
I began experimenting and came up with this super easy, skin moisturizing recipe for all natural lip balm. I’ve been making it for the last two years and I LOVE it! We also sell our homemade lip balm in our Etsy shop and wholesale it to stores and have received a lot of positive feedback from folks who love our all natural lip balm.
Easy Natural Lip Balm Recipe:
This recipe makes approximately seven standard size lip balm tubes.
2. Grate the beeswax if you did not purchase the pellets.
3. Place the beeswax and oils in a double boiler. Heat on medium until they are all melted and mixed together. You can also put all your ingredients in a glass measuring cup and heat them in the microwave.
4. Pour the wax into the lip balm tubes. I prefer to put the hot wax in a large glass measuring cup with a pour spout for easy tube filling. Fill the tubes to the very top, if a little runs out the top that is fine. Don’t try to wipe it off now, wait until it dries and it easily wipes off the tube.
5. Let the lip balm cool and harden. This takes about an hour. Wipe down the tubes with a dry cloth, place the caps on and they’re ready to use.
See, wasn’t that simple? Using this easy natural lip balm recipe is a great way to start saving money and making your own homemade lip balm!
