DIY-Thieves Lip Balm

I love to make my own personal care products! Because when I make my own I know exactly what goes into them. Homemade lip balm was one of the first DIY products I wanted to make after I got my Premium Starter Kit. The Thieves essential oil blend is a powerhouse immunity booster and it’s a staple in my home. I wanted to make a lip balm out of it for the winter months ahead! Click here to learn more about how great Thieves is 🙂

Ingredients: 

  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp shea butter
  • 5 tsp beeswax
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp Apricot Seed Oil
  • essential oils (add 20-30 drops, depending on the strength you like)
  • lip balm tubes

  • In a double boiler over low heat melt the coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax

  • Remove from heat and add honey, apricot seed oil and essential oils
  • Whisk together, but act quickly so it does not begin to harden
  • Pour the mixture into lip balm tubes or small canisters (to make it easier, I use pippettes to fill the lip balm tubes)

  • Let them cool until hard
  • Cap and label
  • Store unused tubes in the fridge and they will last a long time
  • Makes approximately 30 tubes

 

 This would be a great balm for other medicinal purposes, too. It would be a great balm for our kiddos’ feet in flu season. I like to put Thieves blends on my neck and chest area to help me breathe better at night, too. This helps especially if you have a cough or cold. And it stays on forever!
