10-Minute DIY Lip Balm


  • 3 Tbsp. Beeswax Pellets
  • 2 Tbsp. Shea Butter
  • 4 Tbsp. Coconut Oil or other liquid oil such as Almond Oil, Olive Oil or Grapeseed Oil
  • Essential Oil (10-20 drops) or Flavor Oil (1/2 dram)


  1. In a microwave-safe container (I use a glass Pyrex measuring cup), melt the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil in 30-second increments, stirring well after each one.
  2. Stir in the essential oil or flavor oil.
  3. Carefully pour into pots or tubes and allow to cool before using.
