Homemade Lemon Balm Chapstick

This homemade lemon balm chapstick is one of the best products you can ever make. Combine it with a hint of lavender or other essential oil of your choice. Rather than using store-bought products, how about making your own? It can even be a fun activity that you do with your kids. The steps are simple and you don’t even need many ingredients. It’s always nice to share the final result with your family and friends. And many brag a little about your talent at making amazing homemade stuff.

Without further ado, here is how you make the lemon balm chapstick. You will need:

  • 7 drops of lavender essential oil or other oil of your choice
  • 7 drops of lemon essential oil
  • 3 tbsp of beeswax
  • 4 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 drops of vitamin E

Note: all citrus essential oils have acidic properties. For this reason, you should not store the chapstick in a plastic container. It will just eat away at the plastic. We recommend using either glass or tin containers.

First of all, place a little pot on the stove over medium heat. Add in the coconut oil along with the beeswax and the vitamin E oil. Stir in the pot from time to time until all the ingredients melt together. Once you get an even composition, remove the pot from the heat. Let it cool off a bit before you incorporate the essential oils. If you add them too soon, they will simply burn and evaporate.

Prepare your tins beforehand. After you add your essential oils to the mixture and stir well, it’s time to pour everything in tins. Vitamin E makes for such a great addition to this recipe. It softens your lips and adds a bit of extra moisture.

You will probably get around 5-6 tins of lemon balm chapstick. It depends on the size of the tins. You can even add little personalized stickers to them if you are feeling crafty. Now store your chapstick in the fridge until it hardens and then it’s ready to use!
