Make Your Own Coconut Lip Balm
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp beeswax beads (or ½ tbsp candelilla wax for a vegan alternative)
- 1 tbsp mango butter
- 4 drops lime essential oil
- 4 drops mandarin essential oil
- 4 drops grapefruit essential oil
- Melt the wax, mango butter and coconut oil together in a glass jug over a simmering saucepan of water.
- Once melted, add your essential oils and mix quickly.
- Pour the mixture into 15ml reusable lip balm containers, and allow to cool before sealing.
How To UseUse daily as desired. Store in a cool dry place and use within 4 months. This recipe makes enough to approx. fill 2 x 15ml lip balm containers. Tip: use an essential oil combination of your choice, or none at all.
As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!
Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you'd hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off'.
Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient's potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you've made yourself, or commercially formulated product.
Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
