Is this winter weather killing anyone else’s lips or just my family? I swear every single one of us has had a split lip at least once from the dry air. We have been going through so much natural lip balm, it’s crazy! That’s why I wanted to start making my own all natural DIY lip balm.
This lip smacking all natural DIY lip balm will give your lips a nice, soothing treat. It contains an amazing combination of all natural ingredients in the base, plus the yummy addition of wild orange essential oil and vanilla extract. The coconut oil and jojoba oil moisturize your lips and the beeswax seals in the moisture.
Trust me, this DIY lip balm will leave your lips feeling great. So grab all of your DIY beauty supplies and get ready for some fun. This recipe will make 22 lip balms using the heart shaped lip balm containers I used, making it perfect for gift giving!
Lip Soothing All Natural Creamsicle DIY Lip Balm
- Double Boiler
- Measuring Spoons
- Measuring Cups
- Metal spoon
- Kitchen Scale (to weigh the beeswax)
- A knife if you’re using a beeswax brick instead of beeswax pastilles
- 5 ounces of beeswax
- 2 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
- 10 drops pure sweet orange essential oil (more or less depending upon your preference)
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Heart shaped lip balm containers (or your favorite containers)
- Start by lining all of your containers up with the lids removed. Trust me, you want to do it this way or you’ll be rushing once your DIY lip balm is ready to pour.
- Next, melt your beeswax in the double boiler over medium heat. Once the water starts to boil, turn the heat down to low and stir the beeswax constantly until it is completely melted with no lumps. Melting time will vary depending on which type of beeswax you’re using.
- Next, add in your coconut oil, and stir until it’s melted fully into the beeswax.
- Next, stir in your jojoba oil and vanilla extract.
- Finally, stir in the wild orange essential oil.
- Now it’s time to fill your lip balm containers! Leave the water on the lowest setting to keep it warm while you fill your lip balm containers, because if it starts to harden at all, you will need to put it back on the water and let it melt again. It will start firming up fairly fast, so I normally have to do this before I finish.
- Let the DIY lip balm set for about hour, then you can apply your lids.
