All Natural Lip Balm recipe

Soft, smooth, yummy, ALL NATURAL, fun to make, endless creative smelling possibilities – all packaged in an itty bitty, cute container. Did I sell you on making some lip balm or hard lotion? You’ll be glad you said YES. ;)

Jennifer, our resident professional aromatherapist, taught me how to make this fun stuff. She learned from her friend who is graciously sharing her recipe with all of us! (adapted from recipe found here). I wasn’t familiar with hard lotion, but I tried some of Jennifer’s and I can see why people love it! You just rub it in your hands or on rough spots like you would a bar of soap (without water). This makes it easy to target dry spots and the beeswax (included to make it hard) helps lock in the moisture, so I am told.

 Because we love pictures around here, this picture tutorial will hopefully speak for itself.

Let’s start with one of the most fun parts – picking your container. The Sage.com has the best prices Jennifer has found and From Nature with Love has the best selection with great prices as well. Look at these colorful lid colors…

All Natural Lip Balm recipe

Here is a shot of all the containers we used for this project. For the hard lotion, you don’t have to have professional molds – in fact I love what Jennifer uses. See if you can spot the “free” molds.

All Natural Lip Balm recipe

She used an empty laundry detergent measuring container and an empty cookie tray. So clever!

Jennifer had this tray for molding soap – it worked perfect for Hard Lotion as well.

All Natural Lip Balm recipe

Here is the next clever thing Jennifer taught me – you can use an old egg carton and turn it into a stand to hold your empty lip balm containers while you fill them so they don’t tip over. Genius. To make it SUPER simple, look on the bottom for the ones that have these circles already indented in them.

Then just grab your vegetable peeler (perfect size) or craft knife and cut around the circle. If you don’t have an egg carton with the circles, just trace the container and then cut on the line.

Hard Lotion Base and Lip Balm Ingredients:

All Natural Lip Balm recipe
4 oz. Beeswax
6 oz. Coconut Oil (or 2 oz. Aloe Butter & 4 oz. Coconut Oil)
8 oz. Cocoa Butter
Essential Oil if desired – 10-20 drops per 2 oz. of lotion
* You can get all the “butters” here or at thesage.com and the essential oils, here.
This is what the oils look like out of their package.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Place ingredients, except essential oil, in a glass liquid measuring cup. Fill a medium saucepan half-way with water and place the liquid measuring cup in it over medium heat.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
 We wanted to try out a few different essential oil combinations, so Jennifer cleverly used an electric skillet. This gave room for the juice glasses for the smaller batches.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Melt the waxes and oils. To test for desired consistency remove a small amount and let cool. (Especially important if you use other butters than what is in the recipe). Rub it in your hands or try it on your lips if you’re making lip balms. Add more coconut oil to make it softer and more beeswax to make it harder.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
We poured it into something with a spout so it would be easier to pour into the containers.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Then we divided it between some smaller containers so we could make different scents with the same batch. Each container will tell you how much it will hold. A standard lip balm tube holds about .15 oz. and a hard lotion tube holds about .7 oz. To be sure you don’t waste any, weigh the liquid before adding your essential oils. A scale allows for precision in following recipes and no waste – but you could do just as well with a good guess. :)
*If you are making all the same scent, you can skip this part.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Add essential oils, if desired, just before pouring.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Pour into your chosen containers. You can pour the whole batch into a 9 x 13 baking dish. *A silicone one works best but glass is good too. You just need to set it on a hot wet dish towel to melt the bottom slightly then tap it upside down a few times to get it to drop out. Cut into bars and wrap in wax paper. If you cut it 4 x 4 it produces 16 bars 2.25″ x 3.25″.
*Silicone muffin tins, candy molds, soap molds, old interesting cookie packaging, laundry detergent cups, plastic food containers, etc. all work well as molds. Some people say to put the filled molds in the freezer for 30 minutes to get the lotion bars to pop out easily.
This picture is a lotion bar tube but the lip balm tubes work the same way.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Fill half-way, allow to cool slightly, continue pouring until it is domed on the top. It will shrink as it cools.

Look how fun!

Here are some of the Lotion Bars out of their molds.

You can create labels to go on your lip balms if you want or just leave them looking natural.
All Natural Lip Balm recipe
Here are some of the essential oil combinations Jennifer has tried:

Lip Balm

8 tubes

1 oz. hard lotion base

1.7 ml Natural Vanilla Oil (the sage.com)

4 drops doTERRA peppermint essential oil

Hard Lotion Tubes

.7 oz hard lotion base with one of these combinations:
  • 10 drops doTERRA Whisper Essential Oil blend (a beautiful warm floral scent, including Rose, Patchouli and Vanilla Absolute)
  • 14 drops doTERRA Wild Orange & 4 drops doTERRA Ylang Ylang (a fruity floral combination that smells a bit exotic)
  • 7 drops doTERRA Frankincense & 7 drops doTERRA Peppermint (warm, bright & sweet all at the same time and it could ease a headache too!). I love this combination!

Hard Lotion “Cookie” Mold

1.5 oz hard lotion base
8-10 drops doTERRA Lavender essential oil
8-10 drops doTERRA Lime essential oil
These make excellent homemade gifts! You can personalize the scent to the receiver.

I love this kit – it has a great range of oils to treat all of the most common ailments.
What is included in the kit? You can read the FULL DESCRIPTION here but this is my breakdown:
DigestZen: When my kids get a tummy ache, they ask me to rub this on their tummies. It has helped ease my upset stomache numerous times.
Deep Blue: I love using this on my calf muscles after a long run – it has eliminated the stiffness I used to get for days after.
Peppermint: Great for headaches, fevers and as a mouth rinse. Also great for tummy aches – especially car sickness. This is one of my favorite oils. I didn’t know I liked peppermint until I smelled doTERRA peppermint – it smells SO good.
Lavender: For headaches, calming, more restful sleep and bug bites
Melaleuca: Known as first aid for the skin. Works great on blemishes…not that I would know. ;) Also great for cleaning.
Oregano: This is powerful stuff. Good for GI health, but also for cleaning – it kills ALL the bad stuff.
Frankincense: Good for: cuts, sores, beautiful skin, immune function, stress headaches…when in doubt, use frankincense!
Breathe: Clears stuffy noses and eases respiratory discomfort. I as amazed at how well this works. This stuff has saved my son numerous times. You can read more about that, here.
On Guard: If I had to choose 1 oil to buy – this would be it! For the immune support alone it would be worth it, but it is also great for cleaning and it smells like Christmas – you can’t beat that!

    I was just reading up on all the wonderful things the doTerra essentials are great for!! Cleaning the house is one of them -- I'm tired of those horrible household chemicals so essential oils will clean and make the whole house fabulous! Making health care products like lip balm is a wonderful added bonus!

    Renee says:
    I have just started making my own lip balms and lotion bars. My lip balm was not what I expected. I is very mussy and not hard. What do you suggest I do? I used cocoa butter with on of my lotion bars and shea butter with the other and I didn't care for the cocoa butter one as well as I did the shea butter. The cocoa butter has a funny smell. Is that normal? Any help would be appreciated before I throw up my hands and quit. You site looks alot better than the one I have. Maybe I should try yours before I quit.
    Thanks for any advise.

    I love homemade items for so many reasons. I like to know when the item was made, I like to buy American made items and so forth. Thank you for showing me more items I can make myself. I also have a condition that enhances my sense of smell alot stronger than normal so I like having control of the perfumes in my toiletries. Thank you for helping me to do this. Trish Butler

    I just wanted to say that you are BRILLIANT for thinking to use the egg cartons to hold your lip balm tubes. I spent the money for the plastic holder but this is genius! And very little cleanup to boot!

    Thanks :)

    Melanie says:
    Hey! This confused me a little bit, the original recipe, does it make the lip balm or do you HAVE to use the vanilla oil as well? Also wondering if you know how many tubes the original recipe makes? Thanks!
