Homemade Honey Lip Balm

Life Over Easy

This homemade Honey Lip Balm is almost good enough to eat! Just pop a few simple and healthy ingredients in a double boiler, and you’re done. I love the clean and natural ingredients in this recipe, and the smooth and tingly feel when you put it on. It sets up firm, but softens when you apply it with your fingertip. And it includes one of my favourite ingredients – coconut oil.
The ingredients for this recipe have a lot of benefits for your lips. The beeswax is a natural emollient and adds a layer of protection. Coconut oil is so healthy for your skin, and helps promote hydration. And honey naturally attracts moisture. That’s a lot of goodness in each pot!


  • 8 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp beeswax, grated
  • 1 ½ tbsp honey
  • 1 tube lipstick for colour (optional)
  • oil from 4 capsules vitamin E (optional)
  • 40 drops peppermint essential oil

How to make it

Step 1: Combine all the ingredients except essential oil in the top of a double boiler, and heat until melted.

Step 2: Add the essential oil and cool slightly. Pour into tins.
