Lip Balm – Soft Honey

This basic recipe makes a very soft sweet honey lip balm which will nourish your lips and leave them shiny.

Lip Balm – Soft Honey

What you need

1 tbs Vaseline or petroleum jelly
1/3 tsp honey
Small container


First you put the Vaseline and honey in a small microwavable container and microwave until melted. You can also use a double boiler method to melt down the vaseline.

Mix well and pour into pots allow to cool before use.

Ensure all containers are sterile by boiling them to prevent contamination of your lip loss.

If you wish to dye this balm you can use a cosmetic coloring available from home made body product supply stores. You can also use a small amount of store bought lipstick to tint the balm.

Alternatively you can also use colored beeswax or candle dye as it is being used in such a small quantity it will not stain or harm your skin.

    do u have to melt the vaseline & honey?

  2. When I made this, the honey went to the bottom, and the petroleum jelly/vaseline went to the top. Other than that, it was great!! I am giving it for a late X-mas gift, and I bet the person I’m giving it to will love it! I microwaved it the first time and it separated, now I am going to try it with the double boiler instead!

  3. Use Coconut oil (unrefined) n some olive or grape seed oil instead… If you want it thicker add beeswax don’t use the petroleum IT is NOT healthy.

  4. thanks, i think this is gonna help me alot

  5. i micorwaved the vaseline and honey but who cares you put ice in it and fwa lah you have some lip balm

  6. Very easy to make, the honey clumped and fell to the bottom though. It won’t go bad if it isn’t stored in the refrigerator, right? Because I’ve seen other recipes that say it needs to be kept in the refrigerator.

  7. If your doing this with vaseline theres no need to microwave just mix well it does the same except causes alot less fuss great recipe really easy and effective!

  8. i really don’t want to use vasaline maybe a uncolored chapstick?

  9. Thanks 2 this project I will honey lips. YUM!

  10. Great idea! I’ve been looking everywhere for easy diy
    Lip balm then I found this!!!!!

  11. do you have one for mango and papaya

  12. Great recipe. Haven’t tried yet but will soon. And so simple to make! Thanks

  13. i think this recipe will be perfect for me to sell at school. we are having a business day for fifth grade and i will be sure to sell this to the girls and it will work out great because its not expensive and is easy to do

  14. I made this lip balm this afternoon. I used a tiny bit of Diamond Shine lipstick to tint, and the color came out muted and pretty. The extremely small bits of glitter in the lipstick look quite nice swirled around in the lip gloss.


    The honey did not want to mix into the vaseline even though I tried just about every method I know to stir the ingredients together. Eventually as the mix cooled off in my little pots, I had honey settled at the bottom. That was dissapointing to me.
