If you were to to choose just one make-up product to use for the rest of your life, what would it be? Ours happen to be a lip balm! We can’t afford to have dry chapped lips! That would be a bummer!

We figured that instead of continuously buying a tube of lip balm whenever we run out, why not try to make one ourselves? Here’s what we’ll need:

-Coconut Oil
-Shea Butter
-Peppermint Essential Oil
-A small container (for storing)
-A double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small pan with boiling water
-A spatula


-2 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
-2 tablespoons shea butter
-2 tablespoons coconut oil
-30+ drops peppermint essential oil


1. Melt the beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil in your glass bowl over a pot of boiling water while stirring constantly.
2. Remove the mixture from the heat while you keep it over the boiling water.
3. Add the drops of peppermint oil and stir continuously.
4. Pour the mixture over your container
