The recipe makes one lip balm of about 30 g/0.035 oz

  • Equal amounts of oil and shea butter: such as 11.1 g/0.39 oz avocado oil and 11.1 g/0.39 oz shea butter
  • 3.75 g/0.13 oz candelilla wax or 7.7 g/0.27 oz beeswax
  • optional: 2-3 drops vitamin E and/or 1-2 drops sweet orange essential oil


  1. Melt the wax and the oil in a water bath (bain-marie).
  2. Once the mixture is fully melted, add the optional vitamin E and essential oil and pour everything into a lib balm tube or tin.
  3. Pop in the freezer for about 15 minutes to let it harden.


It's as easy as that! Do you use lip balm? If so have you ever tried making your own?
