Piping Rock - The Pipe Line - DIY Homemade Beeswax Lip Balm

This post is originally from Piping Rock. All content is theirs.

What can we say about lip balm besides that it’s… the bomb!

Completely dated phrases aside, we love us a good stick of lip balm, especially during these cold winter months. In fact, we’re such big fans that a few of us over at the Piping Rock office decided to gather up the ingredients necessary, meet up in the kitchen and make our own… with fantastic results! Try ’em out for yourself–it’s a fun activity the whole family can get in on, plus they make great gifts and party favors!

Check out our simple step-by-step how to below…

What You’ll Need

Piping Rock - The Pipe Line - DIY Homemade Beeswax Lip Balm

Step 1

Create a double boiler using a glass measuring cup and a tall pan (or whatever you have in the house that you use for your double boiling purposes). Put on the stove over medium heat, keeping an eye on the water and making sure it doesn’t come to a rolling boil, which could cause water to get into the glass cup. Add your coconut oil and cocoa butter, stirring as they start to melt.

Step 2

Add you oils and beeswax. Continue to stir until all of the coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax are melted and the oils are well combined. This should take around 10-12 minutes or so, depending on the size of the batch you’re making.

Step 3

Once the ingredients are melted and combined, remove from heat. It’s time to start pouring! Place your empty tubes on a flat surface, making sure the bottom dials are twisted all the way down and they’re banded together so they won’t accidentally tip over while you’re pouring. With a steady hand, pour the liquid into each tube using a funnel. You’ll want to do this with a bit of haste since the liquid will solidify quickly and could clog the funnel if you let it sit too long.

Step 4

Let the tubes sit for about an hour until the liquid has completely cooled and hardened. Pop on the cap and you’re ready to go!

How did your balms turn out? Which ingredients did you use? Did you make your own label for the tubes?

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Create a double boiler using a glass measuring cup and a tall pan (or whatever you have in the house that you use for your double boiling purposes). Put on the stove over medium heat, keeping an eye on the water and making sure it doesn't come to a rolling boil, which could cause water to get into the glass cup. Add your coconut oil and cocoa butter, stirring as they start to melt.
  2. Add you oils and beeswax. Continue to stir until all of the coconut oil, cocoa butter and beeswax are melted and the oils are well combined. This should take around 10-12 minutes or so, depending on the size of the batch you're making.
  3. Once the ingredients are melted and combined, remove from heat. It's time to start pouring! Place your empty tubes on a flat surface, making sure the bottom dials are twisted all the way down and they're banded together so they won't accidentally tip over while you're pouring.

  4. Let the tubes sit for about an hour until the liquid has completely cooled and hardened. Pop on the cap and you're ready to go!
 
NOTES
  1. Use Shea Butter or Mango Butter in place of Cocoa Butter for different flavors
  2. Use Grapeseed Oil in place of Sweet Almond Oil if you prefer
  3. Not a fan of Peppermint Oil? Sweet Orange Oil and Vanilla Oil are great replacements!
