DIY Lip Balm with Essential Oils!

Chocolate Peppermint DIY lip balm from One Project Closer

In my house, we go through a lot of lip balm. I mean, a lot. I’d like to blame it on the kids and their over-extending of the stick 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 lip balms out of desperation, which just made my lips feel even more chapped. Argh.

The sheer volume and expense for quality lip balms seemed a bit ridiculous! So, I made my own DIY Lip Balm 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 Lip Balm 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 smells like FALL!! Yummmmm, all that cinnamon and clove.

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

Once I made the lip balms, 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 lip balms and a bottle of Peppermint Essential Oil make a great Easter gift or hostess present?

    Hey! I bet cocoa butter would be really good too, rather than the powder? Does the powder have the same benefits or is it just for flavor/scent?

    These are awesome. I Made these as Christmas gifts and everyone loved them. I mixed cocoa butter with the coconut oil. I call it hot cocoa chap stick. Yummy. I halved the recipe and got 18 of my tubes.

    The best oil for skin is one that moisturizes the skin deeply, nourishes it with vitamins and minerals and is suitable for all skin types.
    The edible seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, specifically an omega-3 fat called alpha linolenic acid.

    There are many health benefits associated with consuming fruits of all kinds.

    If I didn’t want to use chocolate, would the recipe work for just peppermint Chapstick, or do I need to add another ingredient? Thank you in advance
