This simple lip balm recipe is super simple!

I always feel like a scientist when I dig out my test tube holder and start mixing up my special health and beauty beeswax lip balm recipe.  I get pretty fussy about what I put on my lips so I don’t mind taking the extra effort to make a lip balm that is free of chemicals.  The bonus is I get to use our own homegrown beeswax from our own bee hives.

beeswax lip balm recipe

It’s really easy. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 6 tablespoons beeswax, freshly grated or beeswax pellets (you can find them at Amazon)
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons sweet almond oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon tea tree oil
  • 20 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • Lip balm tubes (I buy mine at Amazon)


Using a double boiler or heat-safe bowl place pint jar in the pot of simmering water. Melt beeswax, almond oil, and coconut oil until melted and blended.

Remove from heat and add vitamin E oil, tea tree oil, and your favorite essential oil. Stir until blended and pour into lip balm tubes.
