Makes approximately 7-8 tubes. 

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes 




  • 1 Tbs 100 percent beeswax
  • 1 Tbs organic unrefined coconut oil 
  • 1 Tbs 100 percent raw shea butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla essential oil
  • 8 empty lip balm tubes or small plastic tubs
  • Small saucepan
  • Small funnel
  1. Line up 8 empty lip balm tubes or your tubs next to the stove. Make sure the lip balm tubes are twisted all the way to the bottom.
  2. Combine all ingredients together except the vanilla essential oil and place in a saucepan.
  3. Stir over medium heat for 4–5 minutes.
  4. Using funnel, carefully pour liquid into the tubes or tubs until it reaches the top of the lip balm tube. This needs to be done quickly before the wax hardens.
  5. Let cool for 15 minutes to allow the liquid to harden.
  1. If you like your lip balm firmer, add more beeswax; and if you like it softer, add less beeswax. You can always add a different essential oil to change the flavor.
