Homemade Lip Balm | Real Food RN

I love to make my own personal care products not only to save money, but because when I make my own I know exactly what goes into them. Homemade lip balm was something that had always intimidated me a bit because it seemed difficult. Boy was I wrong! Making it is super easy and I tweaked the recipe a bit so it also functions as a healing salve. Keep a tube of this in your purse for a variety of uses.

Uses for this balm:

  • chapstick
  • I apply it to the inside of my nose in the winter when it’s really dry
  • I apply it to cracked knuckles and dry skin patches
  • I use it on scrapes

Ingredients: 

Directions: 

  • In a double boiler over low heat melt the coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax

  • Remove from heat and add honey and essential oils

  • Whisk together, but act quickly so it does not begin to harden
  • Pour the mixture into lip balm tubes or small canisters (to make it easier, I use pipettes to fill the lip balm tubes)
  • Let them cool until hard
  • Cap and label
  • Store unused tubes in the fridge and they will last a long time
  • Makes approximately 16 tubes
