Lip Balm


General How-to




+ + +

Lip balm is one of those things that’s deceptively easy to make. Although it seems like your tube of Burt’s Bees is full of unduplicable magic, it’s really nothing more than a little bit of oil, a dab of wax, and maybe something that smells good. Don’t believe me? Read a little more about the science of lip balm and see for yourself.

If you’re a recipe-follower, there’s all kinds of stuff here for you. Looking for some more general information? Check out my general how-to, which lets you know all the basic building blocks of a good lip lube. My guides on carrier oils, butters, and waxes give more in-depth detail on the world of ingredients you have to choose from. Rounding out the DIY section of this DIY are my conversion guides, which let help you navigate the weird world of imperial and metric measurement.

Once you’ve whipped up some lip balm, you’ll need somewhere to store it. I get all my tubes from  Bulk Apothecary for 14¢ apiece. When I’m feeling fancy, I make special containers like my Bottlecap Clamshell Caboodle.
