This recipe I found on  It is originally from Ponte Verde Soap Shoppe. This recipe makes 6 ozs of lip balm.

This lip balm leaves a smooth, non-greasy feeling and will not cake on your lips.


1½ oz beeswax pearls
1 oz cocoa butter
1½ oz shea butter
2 ozs. sweet almond oil
1-2 teaspoons flavor oil
1 teaspoon vitamin E liquid (optional, as a preservative)


Weigh all ingredients.

In a very small pan, add the beeswax and melt over the lowest setting.

Once melted add the cocoa butter chunks and shea butter, let melt, and then add the sweet almond oil. Heat through. Add the Vitamin E oil.

Remove from stove and pour into a glass measuring cup for easy pouring into lip balm containers.

Add the flavor oil, or if you would like to make more than one flavor with this recipe, separate into different glass jars or cups and then add the flavor oils. Adjust the amount of flavor oil accordingly.

Stir flavor oils in and pour into lip balm containers. If the mixture starts to harden, place in the microwave for a few seconds to re-melt and then pour.
