But buying a good lip balm can be expensive for a girl with a habit like mine, so I decided to make my own to try to save some money. And guess what?! It's not only cheap, but it's easy. It literally takes 10 minutes to create an entire stash of lip balm for just a few dollars!
But what's really fantastic is that this Lavender Coconut Lip Balm is the perfect gift for holidays, birthdays or favors for a party. Why? Because it's inexpensive and super easy, but at the same time it's thoughtful and everybody loves them! I call that a win at life, my friend.
- 2 oz Beeswax, chopped (or grated) I use 100% Organic Hand Poured Beeswax or Organic beeswax Pellets (If you get white, some companies use chemicals to bleach them)
- 3 oz Coconut Oil (I use Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil)- you can use more coconut oil if you want it softer-- this is a hard recipe which is good for lip balm tubes, too.
- 5 drops of Vitamin E (Vitamin E Oil)
- 10 drops of Therapeutic Grade Lavender Essential Oil (Find Quality Essential Oils)

Only 10% of all essential oils are actually pure-- don't pay attention to anything on the bottle! IT'S LIES! Poor regulations allows companies to put pure on their bottle if they have 10% plant product. Yep, TEN. I didn't forget a 0. That's why it's so important to know who you are buying from!
