This recipe will allow you to make a natural nourishing homemade lip balm. This recipe is the perfect protection for your lips, particularly during the colder months of the year. I like to make a batch of this and have several containers of it available in various spots at home and in my handbags so I always have them on hand.



  • 2 teaspoons beeswax
  • 2 teaspoons shea butter
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E
  • 10+ drops peppermint essential oil or another essential oil of your choice
  • Lip balm container (tin or tubes) large enough for approximately 30 mL of lip balm


  1. Mix beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil in a double boiler or glass bowl over a small saucepan with an inch of water. Bring water to a boil and lower the heat to a simmer, and stir until the ingredients are melted.
  2. Remove from heat and cool slightly before adding the peppermint essential oil
  3. Pour in to lip balm tin or use a dropper to transfer it into lip balm tubes. Let it cool completely before using.
