Easy Recipe for home made ‘Lip Balm’

WEB DESK: In winters nothing feels quite so good as rubbing balm into chapped lips that desperately need it. You can save money by making your own, particularly if you want it all pure and natural.

Here is an easy recipe you can try to prepare home made lip balm.


1 1/2 tsp grated beeswax
1/2 tsp shea butter
1/2 tsp jojoba oil
1/2 tsp sweet almond oil
3-4 drops sweet orange essential oil or peppermint oil (or another flavor oil if you prefer)
10 drops vitamin E 1000 IU


Melt beeswax, shea butter, and oils together in a double boiler. Remove from heat. When mixture has cooled down a bit, add essential oil and the vitamin E into the mixture. Stir and pour into lip balm containers. Allow to solidify. This should be hard enough to use in lip balm tubes. If it is too hard, add a little more jojoba or sweet almond oil. Makes about 5 tubes.
