This recipe makes approximately 100 grams (24 x lip balm tubes) of luscious lip balm that will treat your lips like royalty!

Ingredients:

29 grams white beeswax
35 grams coconut oil
35 grams avocado oil
18 grams mango butter
20 drops of flavouring (must be our lip balm range, do not use candle fragrances)
1 teaspoon sweetener (castor sugar or Stevia) optional
24 lip balm tubes plus caps, you can also use larger pots or acrylic jars

Method:

1. In a double boiler (a Pyrex jug in a pot of gently boiling water on the stove) melt your beeswax and mango butter. Use a low heat and melt very gradually.
2. Weigh out your coconut oil and avocado oil and add those oils to your melted beeswax/mango butter mixture, and allow to melt thoroughly. Do not overheat your oils/butters or you risk ruining them.
3. On a clean board crush the stevia or castor sugar sweetener with the back of a teaspoon and add to your mix. NB: Stevia does not dissolve in oil so you may like to use a fine drawstring bag and immerse in the oils.
4. Remove from heat and then add your flavouring and stir for two minutes until all ingredients are fully mixed and dissolved.
5. Carefully pour your mixture into lip balm pots and let them set.
6. That’s it! Check your finished results and make any notes or tweaks to this recipe and save them for next time. Enjoy these luscious lip balms.

    Hi there, would Red Raspberry seed oil be able to be added to this lip balm to make it higher in spf? I know beeswax is a natural one also, however, my family has some very fair skinned members that require the greater protection 🙂 Thanks 🙂

    Hi there, The Avocado oil is used in this recipe for it’s amazing hydration benefits. Why not swap the avocado oil for the Red Raspberry seed oil – It is great for the skin/lips and has the spf factor you would like ! Would love to hear how it turns out! Thanks 🙂

      Hi Koko, it seemed to work well 🙂 as with untested products, there is no official SFP rating, but apparently it works well 😀 Thanks for your help with this 🙂

    Hi there. I tried olive oil instead of the avocado, and it seemed to work. Would the hydration effects be about the same, do you think?

      Hi Tracey, thanks for the feedback. Yes the olive oil is fine to use, like avocado oil the olive oil has great moisturising and softening properties and it also works as an anti inflammatory.

    Hi There. Does anybody have a suggested alternative to the beeswax in this recipe? I am allergic to all bee products so struggle to find a lip balm I can safely use.

      Hi Carly, the beeswax keeps the balm solid at room temperature and is a great carrier for the other ingredients. To replace it you’ll need an ingredient that also remains solid. You could try soy wax, I would suggest the S100 pure soy as a starter. I have not tested this myself but suggest it would be worth a try. Let us know how it goes. Thanks.

        I’ve used soy wax in my lip balms to keep it vegan and it works well!
