Homemade Chapstick

Recipe for Homemade Chap-stick.  I love this and always have one with me.

Heat the following in the microwave until melted (heat 20-30 seconds at a time):
  • 1.5 tsp Beeswax
  • 2 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 tsp Cocoa Butter
  • 3 tsp Oil (I use 1 tsp Olive, 1 tsp Jojoba, 1 tsp Avocado)
 Then add the following to the melted mixture:
  • 3 Capsules Vitamin E
  • 5-12 drops essential oils (I used Sweet Orange and Lavender)
Pour in to 6-7 empty chap-stick tubes.

  • Use a Pyrex measuring cup, so you can pour into the tubes.
  • Do NOT use emulsifying wax not the right texture for chap-stick.
  • Experiment with different essential oils to get a unique smell.
  • Mountain Rose Herbs is a great place to find the ingredients.
