Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm Recipe

I love the cool tingle of peppermint lip balm, especially in the winter.  Peppermint essential oil is said to help heal chapped lips, so this is really a great recipe for winter.  My kids constantly lip their lips, no matter how many times I tell them that this is what causes the red, chapped lips!  This helps create a barrier while it heals and protects.  I usually make a double batch of this so we can stash them all over the house for the kids.  Do your kids lose lip balm as often as mine do?  I have no idea where it goes.  It's there one day, gone the next, and back again the next day.  This peppermint lip balm recipe will make 10-12 lip balm tubes or about 5 one inch lip balm pots worth of product.

What You Need

  1. If you don't have a double boiler, you can easily make one by placing a Pyrex measuring cup in a sauce pan half full of water.  You need to lift up the measuring cup so it's not sitting on the heat source.  I use a canning jar ring. 
  2. Melt the beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil over medium to low heat in the double boiler until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and stir well.  
  4. Add peppermint essential oil.
  5. Pour in to lip balm tubes or lip balm pots.  
  6. Let cool for 24 hours before capping.

I hope you enjoy my homemade peppermint lip balm recipe!  Let me know if you try it.
