Beyond Easy DIY Lip Balm

beth November 2, 2012

We use to buy chapstick until we realized searching for a natural one and then paying $3 just wasn’t worth it. Finally, we decided “hey…we can do this.” And we have. We now have our own stock and it takes no time at all to make.

After doing the math this comes down to less than a dollar a stick.

**Don’t want to make your own?  Grab some in our store!**

You need:

  • 1 Ounce beeswax
  • 2 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 Drops peppermint oil
  • Crockpot

Let’s Begin:

Place your beeswax and oil in the crockpot until it is melted.

Then add the essential oils.

Pour this mixture into your chapstick containers.

And you have chapstick!

It really is that simple! After your done just clean up with hot water — and I mean right after your done before it hardens.

  2. Just a question with the crockpot, is it ok after cleaning it to still make meals in it? I assume so,just a question. It May seem dumb to ask such. Thanks.
    It seems much better than store bought. Now I need some bees wax.

  4. This is one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever seen for chapstick. And you can still change up the flavors and colors as well. I love it! I try to do pretty much everything homemade. Pretty crunchy, I know, but it’s super fun!

  11. I have just came across this and so want to make it. I am wanting to get into diy products. I use chap stick everyday and I’m always applying it through out the day. My lips get a burn feeling when I don’t use a good brand like Polysporin. Would this give give moisture our would I need to look further for something with more oils added?

    Thanks
