My Favorite All Natural Orange and Peppermint Lip Balm


  • 1 oz of Organic Beeswax
  • 2 oz of Unrefined Organic Shea Butter
  • 1 oz of Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
  • 10 Drops of Orange Essential Oils
  • 10 Drops of Peppermint Essential Oil
  • Containers
  • Double Boiler or glass bowl & pot
  • Glass dropper


  1. Measure out beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil, by weight, into double boiler or glass bowl
  2. Melt the beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil over medium heat – DO NOT BOIL
  3. Once melted, remove from heat and quickly add your essential oils
  4. Give it a gentle but quick stir
  5. Pour slowly into your containers - I used 10 of these and love the old school feel.

  6. You can let them cool on the counter or put them in the fridge until completely cooled and hardened
  7. Put on your top.

Recipe Notes

BONUS – You can make lotion bars with this same recipe! Using the same measurements you can make 2 Altoid tin lotion bars. Be careful to only fill to just below the hinge or you’ll make a mess.
