Strawberry Lip Balm

First comes freshly scrubbed lips then comes a moisturizing lip balm. I have made a diy lip balm before here (https://tlgemsandmixes.com/2014/11/27/olive-rose-lip-balm/), However this particular one was  inspired by this (http://doterrablog.com/diy-essential-lip-balm/) post I read, I liked the use of the tubes and I wanted something that felt a little softer and looked more pretty, so this is my version of events. I hope you like!.


This is a sort of diy that you can make with friends and everyone can add their own flavors and personal touch. It is so simple and so much fun.

My Recipe

Beeswax 10g

Cocoa Butter 20g

Coconut Oil 10g

Almond Oil 5g

Dried Strawberry

Rose Essential Oil

Vitamin E 2 to 3 drops


  • Crush your dried strawberry or just break into smaller chunks
  • Melt your beeswax(double boiler or microwave), remove from heat and add the cocoa butter and coconut oil and allow the heat from the wax melt the them. I added my crushed berries to the wax and butter before melting.
  • Add your essential oil or oils
  • Mix well together and pour. Pouring can be a little messy so cover your counter top with kitchen towel to make cleaning easier.
  • Allow to cool and your lip balm is ready to use.
