Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm

Homemade peppermint lip balm recipe
Servings 10
Author Crystal


  • 1 tablespoon shea butter
  • 1 tablespoon almond oil
  • 1 tablespoon beeswax
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 10-15 drops peppermint essential oil


  • Melt almond oil, beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil over low heat in a double boiler. I used a large pyrex measuring cup as the double boiler and with a small amount of water in the pot.
  • Add the shea butter until melted (adding the shea butter last will help prevent it from getting grainy once it has cooled).
  • Remove from heat; stir in peppermint essential oil.
  • Immediately pour into lip balm tubes. Allow to cool before adding caps. Cool for 24 hours or overnight. Add label with glue stick or adhesive tape runner.
