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! 

Great Essential Oil Mixes:

    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)

    Hi Leighanna! We recommend about 5 drops in each lip balm, so altogether we recommend adding about 12 drops in total to this recipe.

    Hi. I am new to essential oils, and I recently bought a few from another company (they are not well known- so I don’t know how high quality the oils are). I made lip balms using your recipe, except I added 36 drops of peppermint EO (from the other company). The lip balms are great, except I can barely tell that I put peppermint in them. If I order yours and only used 5 drops, will I be able to tell a difference? Do you have any other tips? Thanks!
