<span itemprop="name">Peppermint Lavender Lip Balm</span>

  • Yield: 6-8 Tubes


  • 4 tsp. beeswax pellets
  • 2 tsp. shea butter
  • 3 tsp. almond oil
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil
  • 5 -8 drops peppermint essential oil
  • 3 -4 drops lavender essential oil
  • 8 lip balm tubes


  1. Add 2 inches of water to a saucepan or slow cooker. Put saucepan on medium high heat. If using a slow cooker use hot water to start and turn to high
  2. In a glass jar put bees wax, shea butter, almond oil and coconut oil. Put the glass jar in the water in either the saucepan or slow cooker. Stir occasionally as everything melts.
  3. Once everything is melted turn off the burner. Add the essential oils and stir. I use a ration of 2:1 peppermint to lavender.
  4. Now the tricky part, filling the lip balm tubes. I have found that a straw works well. I use clear ones so I can see the level of the liquid. I actually suck up the hot liquid. I can't stress enough to not go beyond about half the length of the straw. Hold the upper end closed then release the liquid into the tube. It may take two or three times to fill each tube. Round out the top of the tube by a drop or two but don't overflow. When the mixture cools it shrinks to level with the top of the tube. Make sure the jar stays in the hot water while you work so the mixture doesn't start to solidify.
  5. Once all the tubes are full let them sit for an hour or so to cool. Do not cap until completely cool.
  6. Feel free to try other essential oils. Wild orange makes a fun creamsicle lip balm.
