How To Make Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm

Get some peppermint essential oil, take the cocoa butter down from the cupboard, pull the shea butter out of the pantry, and stir up this amazing lip balm. Your lips will thank you!

The whole process of making your own lip balm is fairly simple and straightforward. Melt shea butter, cocoa butter, and beeswax in a double boiler.

Next, let the mixture cool for 5-10 minutes. Then, mix with essential oils. Stir to combine.

Pour the peppermint lip balm mixture into tubes or pots.

Let sit at room temperature until solid, which usually takes 2 to 4 hours in a moderate climate.

I used beetroot powder to color this peppermint lip balm recipe. Alternatively, use mica powder or food coloring or leave the homemade bath products uncolored.

This is a great DIY gift for the holidays, too, it’s easy to make and package up in a cute little jar with some ribbon. Put it in a gift basket with this gingerbread body butter to give them something a little cozier smelling too!

As such, you can store yours for about twelve months. You won’t believe how easy this is to make!

Want the perfect cure for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season?

  1. Melt cocoa butter and beeswax over low heat in a double boiler. I used a large pyrex measuring cup as the double boiler and with a small amount of water in the pot.
  2. Add the shea butter until melted (adding it last will help prevent it from getting grainy once it has cooled).
  3. Remove from heat. Stir in peppermint essential oil.
  4. Immediately pour into lip balm tubes (or jars/pots). Allow cooling before adding caps. Let sit at room temperature until solid, which usually takes 2 to 4 hours in a moderate climate.
