I'd like to try to make some lip balm for the family- anyone have a tried and true recipe.

This is what we use. Personally, I like a little more beeswax to make it more firm since I keep the tube in my pocket and it is warm when I use it. My wife likes this one (so that is what we do) since she keeps it in her purse and it is cooler when she uses it. Also, she like the tins that she uses her finger to apply the balm.

Lip Balm (15 Tubes)


26 Grams Sweet Almond Oil
16 Grams Shea Butter
10 Grams Cocoa Butter
12 Grams Beeswax


4 Vitamin E tablets


1 Tsp Peppermint Flavoring Oil

A tip that I found really helpfull is to put a teaspoon in the freezer before you make the lipbalm. Then you can stick it in the the hot mixture and get an idea of its stiffness, if its too stiff add some oil, too loose add some more wax. I also use some coconut oil in mine which gives it a great silky feel.
