DIY Beeswax Lip Balm Recipe

Keep your lips luscious with this amazing beeswax lip balm recipe. It’s the perfect cure for cracked or dry lips for sensual lips that taste delectable.

What you need:

  • 5 tsp. jojoba oil (you can use coconut oil in a pinch)
  • 3 tbsp. grated unbleached beeswax
  • 6 drops essential oil (mint, lemon, lavender and peppermint are all great options)
  • 1 tsp. honey


In a double boiler* melt the beeswax and the oil together over low heat. Now chuck in the honey and essential oil and give it a good stir. Pour into tins or plastic containers and allow to cool for 20 minutes.


*Don’t have a double boiler? Just pop a glass jar or a bowl in a pot of simmering water on the stove. Be careful not to burn yourself when handling and avoid boiling the water or the glass may crack.
