Peppermint lip balm is one of my go-to recipes to include with gifts, oil samples, or goody bags! I use cocoa butter in this recipe and it smells so yummy combined with the Peppermint! I also love the consistency of this lip balm because it’s not too hard and not too soft. The Peppermint leaves a little tingle on your lips, which I love as well!
Ingredients You’ll Need – I’ll share links to everything I used at the end of this post!
- 2 TBSP of Cocoa Butter
- 2 TBSP of Coconut Oil
- 2 TBSP of Beeswax Pastilles
- 1/2 TSP of Vitamin E
- 25 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
This recipe makes about one dozen lip balms!
Add water to a small saucepan and heat the water to a low boil. The water should be a little less than halfway full so it doesn’t overflow into your ingredients! Add your cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax to a double boiler insert. If this is your first time making homemade lip balm, you can visit my post here if you need more information on how to use a double boiler insert!
Once the ingredients are melted, remove the saucepan from the heat and add the Vitamin E and essential oil. Give it a stir and use a pipette to fill the lip balm tubes to the very top. Carefully transfer them to the fridge until they have cooled, which should take about 15 minutes! Allowing the lip balms to cool off and set in the fridge will also help preserve the therapeutic properties of the essential oils.
Once the lip balms have set, put the tops on the containers and enjoy! I like to put several of the lip balms in little party bags and tie them with a raffia ribbon so I can quickly grab a few if I need them for a last minute gift or package! You can also make your own labels to add to your lip balm containers to decorate them as well. They are really easy to make and a fun way to personalize your homemade goodies!
Be sure to visit our Zeal and Grace Market for some colorful lip balm containers that are super cute too!
