Lip Balm – Apricot & Lemon

This recipe shows you how to make your very own homemade lip balm. This is a delicious, protective and healing gloss especially good for chapped lips

What you need

1 tsp Beeswax (5 ml)
1 tsp Apricot kernel oil (5 ml)
1 tsp Calendula oil (5 ml)(moisturizing oil)
3 drops of Lemon essential oil.


Melt the beeswax. Add the apricot and calendula oils, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat while stirring. When partly cooled, add the essential oil.

Store in a small glass pot.

Mini clean jam jars work well.

  3. were can i find the materials i realy like this project greatings from venezuela sorry if i dont write correctly

  4. the lip balm sounds wonderful

  5. bees wax can be replaced with candulla or almond wax for vegans, i find the above recipe makes a hard balm so i use
    1 tbs beeswax
    2 tbs unrefined shea butter
    3 tbs sunflower oil (best to use edible oils)
    5 drops of essential oils or natural food flavorings
    1/2 tbs set honey

    shelf life should be a good few months or more

  6. can another mosturizing oil such as almond oil be used as calendula oil? because it’s difficult to find it here.

  7. i need somthing without bees wax!

  8. very nice!

  9. super cool talk of the town

  10. Yo man where do I find the illusive apricot and candula oils and lemon essential oils… I doubt Giant has this stuff haha

  11. how long can this be stored before it goes bad?

  12. CraftBits (Shellie Wilson) says

    The pots can be bought from online container suppliers, or use recycled baby food jars. Small bead organizers are also great for lip balms

  13. Any ideas on where to get the pots? I can’t wait to make some of these! =)

  14. You can buy beeswax at most craft stores, usually near the candle supplies, I believe. I’ve seen them at Hobby Lobby and Michael’s Crafts.

  15. Sounds good, but where do you buy beeswax?

  16. Sounds easy

  17. Simple, and sounds great!
