About: Hello, my name is Auroris. Every day we have the opportunity to learn new things, to rethink tired processes, and to improve the way we work.

Hi friends,

I want to share with you how to make Amazing DIY Lip Balm

Will use natural & organic ingredients, so your lips will be softer and smoother, and reused containers. Recycling your empties is free and it's one of the ways to build good karma :)

Step 1: Ingredients

  • Natural Beeswax
  • 100% Organic Coconut Oil
  • Liquid Vitamin E Softgel Capsules
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Shea Butter (Karité)
  • Essential oil (optional)

Lip Balm Containers: used or new

Step 2: Reuse Old Containers

You can buy new containers or challenge yourself to keep lip balm/lip gloss containers. You can really reuse them!


Tip: For reuse container: You have to disassemble it, clean off remaining balm, and wash the pieces in a warm or boiling water.

Step 3: Beeswax 100% Pure and Organic

Step 4: Recipe

Take a bowl and add:

15g Beeswax

15g (2 full teaspoons) Solid Coconut Oil

10g (4 teaspoons) Liquid Jojoba Oil

5g (1 teaspoon) Shea Butter

2 Capsules Vitamin E (puncture the capsules and squeeze)

Tip 1: Keep 1:1:1 proportion beeswax, coconut oil & other oils
Tip 2: Add a chunk of your favorite lipstick and you will obtain Tinted Lip Balm

Step 5:

Take a pot, add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, put the bowl inside (be careful that no water gets inside the bowl) and slowly melt the beeswax & oils, stir it slightly to let the heat melt it naturally.

This prevents you from overheating your base.

Tip: Add essential oils after removing from heat.

Step 6: Pour the Mixture Into the Upright Tubes.

If you have upright tube container, pour the lip balm mixture carefully into it using a teaspoon.

If you are using the container of same type (EOS, like an egg). Join the upper and the middle parts. You will have an upside-down container, ready to fill. Pour the lip balm mixture into the lid, filling it just past the grating.

Step 7: And There You Have It!

Allow the lip balm until solid (about 20 minutes in the fridge)

    Hi! Thanks for the question.


    Screw together: the 1. Top part and the 2.Middle part. Pour the melted lip balm through the grate and into the lid of the container in order to allow the balm to take shape of the container (so you are pouring from inner side).
    Allow it to cool. After setting, take the 3.Bottom part and snap the bottom of the container firmly to put the pieces back together.
    Twist open the container as usual and your lip-balm should be good as new with perfect dome!

    I hope this explanations are more clearly and it's easy to repeat ;)

    Is there any way to make a lip balm that protects the lips from the UV light?

    Thanks for the question. I looked up about this topic and I found the next information:
    Shea Butter – approx. SPF 5-6
    Coconut Oil – approx. SPF 6-10
    Avocado Oil – approx. SPF 4-8
    Beeswax – approx. SPF 15
    Carrot Seed Essential Oil – approx. SPF 28-40
    I can't say that is true and verified information, but our recipe has a pretty good SPF combination ;)

    Where do I get the containers to make that egg-shaped lip balm? Do the containers have a special name?

    I used old lip balm containers from EOS brand.
    You can find a lot of models & colors on aliexpress.com. There's a whole category of Refillable Bottles. Search by ball, sphere or egg balm container.
    I don't know if you are familiar with this site, but I ordered a lot of crafting supplies from there.
    I hope I have helped you.

    This is such a great idea! When the lip-balm sets in the tube, does it wind out easily once it sets, or can it get a bit stuck to the sides of the tube?

    You will be surprised, it will be looking exactly like new!
    I suppose that lip balm in tubes are manufactured using the same method. Just twist to the end and fill to the top with balm.
    Good luck :)

    I believe 15 gm of coconut oil should be 6 teaspoons or 2 tablespoons, not two teaspoons.

    I took 2 teaspoons full of solid coconut oil (Step 4, 2nd photo) But if your coconut oil is already melted, you should use 6 teaspoons.

    Do you know if this would melt in a pants pocket?? I bought an all natural lip balm and it ended up melting in my pocket. Just curious if your recipe would be better. Thanks for sharing!!

    In summer you could increase the wax content, and in winter, if you keep one in the car, make it with less wax.
    If you don't like the consistency you end up with, you can always melt it again, and add more wax or oil.

    Melting test
    I cut a chunk of lip balm and held it in my hand
    for 20 min. After, I squashed the balm and hold for another 10 minutes.
    Looks like it past that test very well, just moisturized the palm of
    your hand.

    May be some organic balms can melt in contact to your
    body because it is not used wax in their composition. There are some
    recipes with only oils or fat. They a also good, but I think you have to
    keep/to sell your balm in a a small lip balm jars/pots. It gives a
    chance not to melt in your pocket or bag :)
