DIY Chapstick with Essential Oils!

by Jocie Hagan (email Jocie) | | March 18, 2014 | 16 Comments »

In my house, we go through a lot of Chapstick. I mean, a lot. I’d like to blame it on the kids and their over-extending of the Chapstick into the cap, but I am just as guilty of accidentally putting them through the wash and dryer. Not to mention, I’d often end up grabbing one of Izzie’s HelloKitty cheapo chapsticks out of desperation, which just made my lips feel even more chapped. Argh.

The sheer volume and expense for quality Chapstick seemed a bit ridiculous! So, I made my own DIY Chapstick and it was so so easy, and for under 50 cents per stick.

If love your EOS, you can easily use this recipe to refill it. I love this printable for a last minute lip balm gift from Tried & True!


I decided to make this DIY Chapstick batch using chocolate and Peppermint Essential Oil, but I also really love using other Essential Oils like, lemon (and honey), orange, vanilla, or Thieves. Thieves is a special Young Living Blend that is amazing at enhancing immunity and it smells like cinnamon and cloves!

One Project Closer

*Side note: I bought the empty chapstick tubes for $0.14 each at Bulk Apothecary and got the beeswax from Amazon.

Once I made the chapsticks, I decided to personalize them a bit, partially because the girls like them to be pretty and also because I want to be able to tell them apart without the girls fighting. I grabbed my wash tape and some cute letter stickers from the Target Dollar Spot and got crafty! Wouldn’t a few chapsticks and a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil make a great Easter gift or hostess present?
