Glossy Lips Lip Balm

Glossy Lips Lip Balm

Pucker up, buttercup! Smooch!

This simple lip balm recipe keeps your lips moisturized and glossy when you are feeling a little chapped. Add your fave  essential oils to create the lip balm vibe of your choice. I mixed together peppermint and cinnamon!


  • 1/4 cup cocoa butter chunks
  • 1 tbsp castor oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp beeswax (add more beeswax for a thicker balm)
  • 2 ml essential oil such as peppermint, cinnamon, orange, tea tree, grapefruit, vanilla, spearmint, rosemary etc
  • Small jars, tins or lip balm tubes


  • Place cocoa butter, beeswax and oils (not essential oils), in a small double boiler and heat until everything is dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and whisk in essential oils.
  • Transfer liquid quickly into a glass jar, tin or container of choice.
  • Place in fridge to let set.
  • Has a long shelf life.

*Note: if you want this thicker you can heat it again and add more beeswax a tsp at a time until you get the firmness you desire.
