  • Lip balm containers
  • Glass measuring cup
  • Small grater
  • Yellow beeswax
  • Coconut oil
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Measuring spoons
  • Stirrers
  • Microwave


  1. Add a few drops of oil to the bottom of the measuring cup. Not only is it good for your skin, it will also help prolong the shelf life of the balm!
  2. Measure out two teaspoons of coconut oil, pressing it into and leveling the spoon. Scrape it all into the measuring cup.
  3. Grate a tablespoon’s worth of the beeswax. Make sure you get the full tablespoon. If you don’t have enough it will make your mixture softer and oilier.
  4. Melt the mixture down completely in the microwave until it is a liquid and golden.
  5. Pour into your lip balm container
  6. Let sit for several hours before use.
