How to Make Lip Balm with Beeswax and Essential Oils

Today we're making Lip Balm with organic beeswax and our organic Veriditas Botanicals essential oils. You're not going to believe how quick and easy this recipe is!

To make your own lip balm, you're going to need:
  • beeswax
  • cocoa butter (if you're going to use lip balm tubes instead of tins)
  • coconut oil
  • jojoba wax
  • Veriditas Botanicals Rose Hip Seed Oil
  • Veriditas Botanicals essential oils
  • organic beet root powder (if you want to add color)
  • lip balm tins or tubes 
  • a slow cooker
  • 1 cup glass measuring jars with pouring spouts (here in the USA, they're made by Anchor and Pyrex)
  • kitchen scale
  • a teaspoon
I am making several flavors at one time, so I am using a separate measuring jar for each recipe to make mixing in the essential oils at the end easy. Each recipe will make 2 lip balm tins. How to make your lip balm:
  1.  Fill your slow cooker with an inch or two of water and turn it on.

  2. In a glass 1-cup measuring jar with a pouring spout, place 1/4 ounce of beeswax, 2 teaspoons of coconut oil (or 1 tsp cocoa butter if you want a firmer balm), and 2 teaspoons of jojoba wax. Repeat this step for as many different flavors as you are wanting to make - so if you want to make 3 flavors of lip balm (6 tins total), then you'll have 3 glass measuring jars with the ingredients in them.

  3. Place your measuring jar(s) in the crockpot to melt the ingredients.

  4. Once the ingredients are melted, remove a jar from the crockpot. Stir in 10 drops of Rose Hip Seed Oil and your essential oils (see blend suggestions below).

  5. Pour the mixture into your lip balm tins.

  6. Leave them on the counter to cool. It usually takes about 30 minutes. Do not move them during this time.

  7. Enjoy your new lip balms! They make great gifts too.

  1. I'm curious what sized lip balm tin you used for this recipe. 1oz? thanks.

    1. I used 1/2 ounce lip balm tins for this recipe, but 1 ounce tins would work just as well. =)

  2. I have never seen jojoba wax anywhere. Can jojoba oil be substituted or would this not work as well? (By the way, thanks for the recipe, it looks awesome - can't wait to try it!)

    1. Good question, Lyn! Jojoba oil and Jojoba wax are actually the same thing. The names are used interchangeably. =) Enjoy!

  3. Is it safe for kids over 10 to have this? with essential oils? I know they aren't supposed to eat it but it will be absorbed in the lips. Thanks

    1. Lip balms that contain child-safe essential oils at a low dilution will be just fine. =) See this post for a list of some of our child-safe oils:

  4. I have read so many articles on the topic of the blogger lovers however this post is actually a fastidious article, keep it up.
