Easy Lip Balm Recipe (with natural SPF!)

Facts which may not always be considered about our lips:

  • Lips can get sunburned
  • Lips can get severely dry and crack from long exposure to sun
  • Lips can lose their elasticity with collagen and elastin breaking down

Wild Herb Soap Co. provides the following lip balm recipe containing oils that are historically known to have natural SPF protection in them. This lip balm is just one way you can protect your lips all year round from long exposure to the sun.  All of the following organic natural ingredients can be found at WildHerbSoap.com


1/2 oz. Cocoa Butter                                                                                         

1 oz. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

1 oz. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1/2 oz. Yellow Beeswax

5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil or Flavor Oil

Lip Balm Tubes or Small Tins 

Melt all ingredients except the essential or flavor oil slowly in a Pyrex cup in the microwave using 20 second bursts. Do NOT overheat! This may start a fire or cause graininess in your finished product.  Let cool for a couple minutes then stir in the essential or flavor oil. You may want to use a popsicle stick or something disposable, since the balm will stick to your stir. Pour into lip balm tubes or small tins. Allow to set for 24 hours or several hours in the refrigerator.
