All Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm

All Natural Moisturizing Lip Balm

Some months ago I posted my all natural tinted lip balm. I loved my new lip balm so much that out went all my store-bought “natural” lip balms. Victory.

Well, almost.

When the husband started getting some dry lips he went looking for some lip balm. Apparently he didn’t want tinted lip balm. Go figure. And since I was already in the mood to try a different recipe that was more moisturizing, I figure the time was right to get experimenting.

All natural moisturizing lip balm - only 5 ingredients!

This recipe is nice and simple with only five ingredients (six if you count the essential oils). Best of all, my husband gives it two thumbs up. The honey and olive oil really give this lip balm a moisturizing boost. You can add essential oils or leave them out. I let the hubs pick out the oils this time so that it would truly be a lip balm just for him.

Of course, I made myself a few tubes, too.

      I had my husband hold the tube still on the counter and then just gently poured it in straight from the pot. My husband first tried to use a funnel and that was a disaster. :)

        I’ve put similar ingredients in a makeshift double boiler by placing them in a glass pyrex measuring cup. I place the pyrex in a pan of water and bring the water to a simmer. The little spout helps =)

    I just want to say thanks for all of your wonderful tips and opinions on all natural products and foods. I’m 16, which I know probably seems pretty young to be interested and researching this stuff, but even when I was younger (12 or 13), I always had doubts about how good all the shampoos and lip balms and cereals I was eating really were for me. I can’t wait to explore you website more, and try this lip balm! Looks great!

    Great blog! I’m just starting my journey to living a more chemical free life. I’m in the process of making my own cleaning spray and am planning to make lip balm this weekend. The recipe I was planning to follow uses coconut oil instead of the cocoa butter, have you ever tried that?

    Thanks for all the great ideas!

      My tinted version uses coconut oil instead of olive oil, but both have cocoa butter because I love that stuff. :)

        Thank you! I do have some cocoa butter, I’ll add a little into the mix. Hopefully I won’t make a huge mess in my kitchen my first time around!

    I don’t ever use a citrus in my balms because they can actually be photosensitizers and burn your skin. I try to steer clear of them because I don’t ever want that to happen to me!

      A good point… although I’m not too worried about the small amount I put in this, but wouldn’t wear it if planning on being outdoors a lot. :)

    I’ve also done lip balms with Coconut oil, Beeswax, Olive oil, Vitamin E and for the smell, i’ve used some Essential oil (for baking, yeah)

    I love your site. Maria, 13 y.

    Hi there,

    I made this recipe and it came out very hard! I’m not sure what I did wrong…but I must admit that I boiled the ingredients for about 20 minutes- I had to run out and purchase some vitamin oil. Also I used Coconut oil instead of Olive Oil. Please help!

      Is it cold in your home? The coconut oil might be getting hard, but it’s probably the boiling issue. You really just want to warm everything enough to melt it.
