How To Make Easy Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm



After making my cinnamon lip scrub I decided to try and make lip balm. It is really easy and quick to do.

What you will need
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp organic cocoa butter
1 tbsp organic beeswax 
1 tbsp vitamin e oil
1 tbsp sweet almond oil
10 drops peppermint oil
10 drops vanilla oil

The essential oils I used were bought from http://www.essentialoilsonline.co.uk

  • In a bowl add the coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, vitamin e oil and almond oil
  • Pour into a pot on the stove and melt on the lowest heat
  • After it has melted, remove from the heat and add the peppermint and vanilla oil
  • Pour into lip balm container 
  • Allow to cool before adding the lids

I also made a cinnamon and frankincense lip balm - you follow all of the same steps for melting on the stove and then add cinnamon and frankincense oil.

I think these lip balms would be great as a Christmas stocking filler! 

Would love to hear if you make this.
