5 Natural Lip Balms + Recipes to Make Your Own

3 organic balms: 1 Wild Rose Balm (subtle fresh rose), 1 Little Wing Lip Balm (cheerful floral citrus-vanilla), 1 Wild Mint Balm (fresh, sweet & minty). ($20, Phoenix Botanicals)

Choose six (!) tubes from a long list of scents including egg nog, rose candy, earl grey, lemon basil and many others! ($23, Soap)

 

Our favorite lip balm scent – chai tea! The color of this lip tint is an extra sparkly copper shimmer that looks good on just about anyone. ($3.75, Epically Epic Soap)

All natural Buttercream Lip Balm in a wonderfully creamy blend of sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, natural flavor oil and vitamin E oil. ($5, Babylon Soap Co.)

 

Pooh would love this homemade lip balm using only Organic Coconut Oil, Beeswax, and Olive Oil. ($9, Forrest Water)

Would rather spend a dollar and be done with it.

Thanks for posting the recipe. Tip: Use a grater to make the beeswax small so it melts more readily. Coconut oil is not necessarily any less sustainable than the almond orchards of California which consume vast quantities of much needed water and are not an indigenous plant to the area - add to that all the fumigation and toxic chemicals dumped on the land - and of course the cost of production of the plastics, etc for the irrigation systems. I bet the odd tree was mowed down to turn California into a farm paradise. We can think about our choices in an analytical way as well.

They all sound gorgeous, and I'd love to have a go at making some.The only problem with lip balms that taste great is that they make you lick your lips more, so it all becomes a bit of a vicious circle.

I am going to attempt this. I wonder if you can use real beeswax from honey?
