DIY Shea Butter and Coconut Oil Lip Balm

Gather your ingredients, including raw shea butter, coconut oil, and optional additions like beeswax, honey, or essential oils for fragrance.


Measure equal parts of shea butter and coconut oil. Melt them together in a double boiler or microwave until fully liquid.

Add beeswax for a firmer texture or a touch of honey for sweetness. Essential oils like peppermint or lavender can be added for fragrance.

Optional Additions

Stir the mixture thoroughly to ensure even distribution of ingredients. This step is crucial for a well-balanced and effective lip balm.


Carefully pour the melted mixture into small lip balm containers or tubes. Use a funnel for precision and to avoid spills.
