 Step 1  Gather all the ingredients and add the beeswax, castor oil and coconut oil in a double boiler on low heat. You will need 6 to 8 lip balm containers for this recipe.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use an aluminum boil placed in a pan filled with warm water.

Step 2 Once all the ingredients are melted, add the essential oil if desired and mix well.

Step 3 Pour the liquid wax in the lip balm containers and fill them to the top. If it has already starting to harden, don’t panic! Put it back into the double boiler for a few seconds until it melts again and pour the rest in the lip balm containers.

Step 4 Wait one hour or two until the wax starts to harden then you can use the lip balm right away! If it is a hot day, you can pop the lip balm containers in the fridge so the lip balms harden more quickly.

Voilà, you have made your own coconut oil lip balm recipe right in your kitchen, how fun and easy was that?!

Yield: 6 to 8 lips balm containers.

PS: if you wonder how to clean the mess in the double boiler, the easiest way is to wipe the reminding oil inside the pan with a paper towel, then it will be much easier to wash as most of the grease is gone. (you’re welcome!)
