How to Make Lip Balm

By Merilee Paige

Lip balm has been around for over a century. It is mainly used to help heal chapped lips, to moisturize them, and keep them more glowing and attractive.

It is essential in locking in moisture. So you must take care of lips, since they do no have their own oil glands.

Most balm is made of petrolatum or petroleum jelly. Just like candle wax or paraffin, it is a partially hydrogenated oil. These act as band-aids, only giving temporary effects, so you need to reapply often.

Balms made from natural ingredients are best for your lips. So you can make your own discount lip balm from natural products as the following will show.


Homemade Lip Balm

Homemade balm is an ideal gift for special occasions such as Christmas. Below is a simple recipe that you can experiment by adding different flavors. The main ingredient is beeswax, which is a natural wax produced by honeybees.

Before starting with the actual procedure, there are a few things that you need to gather. First, you need to purchase lip balm holders. You can find these in craft stores. Also you will need a saucepan, double boiler or a heat resistant bowl for melting the wax, and a glass measuring cup for pouring.


Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe

1-2 Tbsps (tablespoons) Beeswax

5-6 Tbsps of vegetable oil (you can use other oils such as sweet almond, olive oil or jojoba)

2 tsps (teaspoons) honey

2 drops of essential oils (you can use peppermint, lavender, chamomile, etc., or you can use half oil and half shea butter)

1 Vitamin E capsule


In a small saucepan or double broiler, melt together the beeswax in the oil. Once it is melted, remove from heat, add the honey, and continue mixing until the beeswax and the oil are well blended. Stir continuously and let the mixture cool down a little bit before adding the essential oils and the vitamin E.

You can also opt to melt them in a microwave. When using a microwave, make sure to watch it carefully, removing the beeswax and oil as soon as it melts.

Pour the contents into a glass measuring cup. Now pour them into the individual lip balm containers.

This step is optional. If you want to add different flavors into your lip balm mixture, separate them into the different glass containers and then add the flavors you want such as orange, lemon and peppermint. Don't worry if the mixture starts to harden, just place them back in the heat or a microwave to re-melt.

Make sure to let the mixture cool completely before covering the containers. Label your small containers for easy identification.

Isn't that easy? Now you can make your own lip balm and you can give them away as presents. Nothing beats a present handcrafted by you.

Don't have time to make your own homemade Lip Balm? 

If you would prefer to buy your lip balm ready made but like the idea of natural ingredients, especially beeswax and honey then try Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tin or Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm Tube

They're both packed with protective ingredients such as ultra emollient lanolin and almond oil to help soothe cracked or chapped lips.

You can use Beeswax Lip Balm on healthy lips too for a little peppermint tingle.
