DIY: Eden's Garden Essential Oil Infused Lip Balm

May 13, 2015

Make your own natural, therapeutic lip balm in minutes! These homemade lip balms can be made in a variety of essential oil pairings and are great for personal use or gifting. They smell amazing and will keep your lips hydrated and looking fabulous.

What you'll need:

  • 2 Tbs Shea Butter
  • 2 Tbs Almond or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 1 Tbs Beeswax Pellets or Grated Beeswax (you can buy this on Amazon)
  • Small saucepan and stove
  • Container that can pour a small stream into small container
  • Balm Container
  1. Over very low heat on the stove, melt together the beeswax pearls, almond or coconut oil and Shea butter until combined. Keep an eye on it and gently stir. It should never boil, just melt.
  2. Add in 5 drops of your preferred Eden's Garden Essential Oil.
  3. Let the mixture cool a bit (but not so long that it begins to harden in your pan), pour into a small container, let cool.
  4. Apply and give a big smooch to someone you love!

    Hi Diana! Beeswax and Shea butter would not be able to be rolled on, because they would harden in the roller bottle. You could substitute these ingredients for carrier oils, but it wouldn’t really stick like a lip balm does.

    Is there a modification in the recipe I can do in order to use a roller bottle? I don’t like sticking my fingers in lip balm and I don’t want to have to invest in lip balm tubes if I’m just making some for me and my family. I would guess maybe lessening the beeswax? Please let me know. Thank you!

    Hi Annie! Depending on the type of beeswax you’re using, you may want to keep the mixture hot while pouring, rather than allowing it to cool.

    I decided to experiment by melting a little each of the beeswax and the shea butter. The troublesome one is the beeswax. I’ve never worked with beeswax before. Am I suppose to keep it very hot while I am filling the tubes? How is that going to work if the stuff gets hard before it has time to even get squeezed out? And what can keep the beeswax from separating out, sticking to the insides of the pipettes while letting only the coconut oil and shea butter get squeezed out?
    I would REALLY appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks

    Personally I enjoy using Sweet Orange and Vanilla (for a nice smooth Orange Creamsicle) & my Daughter Loves Cinnamon & Peppermint (we call it Cinnamint) & my Dad is very fond of my Lemongrass & Vanilla (which to help with his chapped lips I do add 2 capsules of Vitamin E)
