Homemade Chapstick – great for gifts!

This is another project I have been wanting to make, homemade chapstick! Organic lip balm can be quite pricey and it’s so easy to make so this is definitely a way to save a little money.

Homemade Chapstick Recipe

1 oz Beeswax (can be found here)

1 oz Shea Butter (can be found here)

1tsp Organic Honey

10 drops of lavender oil (can be found here)

Chapstick holders (can be found here)


I set up a double boiler and melted the Beeswax and Shea butter.


Once that was melted I took off the heat and added the honey and Lavender oil. Stir really well.

I used a medicine dropper to get fill the chapstick holders.





Next time I want to try adding some peppermint 🙂

You can download the labels I used below. I printed them on Avery address labels and then trimmed off the excess.
