DIY Day: Coconut Beeswax Balm

Here are 2 amazing recipes for lip balm. I prefer the second one, which is a bit more balm-y. However, the first one is perfect for winter skin, since it delivers amazing moisture. Note: I poured mine into tins, but it is easier to apply if you pour it into an empty lip balm container.

Coconut Beeswax Recipe 1

The ratio of coconut oil to beeswax here is 2:1.

  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp beeswax
  • 2-3 drops Vitamin E

Coconut Beeswax Recipe 2

The ratio of coconut oil to beeswax here is 1:1. I changed the measurements so that the total volume would still be 3 tsp.

  • 1.5 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/5 tsp beeswax
  • 2-3 drops Vitamin E

Directions: In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil and beeswax. Stir in the Vitamin E at the end. Pour into empty lip balm containers.
