Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm with TWO FREE printable labels!
DIY lip balm is so much fun! I’ve been making it for a few months now and am excited to share with you all how to do it. Making your own lip balm is not as hard as it may seem and in the end, it will save you money. It also makes a fabulous gift idea, especially with my two free printables!
One set of labels says, “Peppermint Lip Balm” like you see in the above picture and the other…
“Peace, Love, Happiness, and Kindness.” I thought it would be a great way to spread joy around this holiday season and throughout the year. I love how it all turned out!
How to Make Homemade Lip Balm:
Pipette or Dropper
The beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil will moisturize your lips and leave them feeling soft and smooth!
The peppermint is a light scent and not overwhelming. You can also decide how many drops you would like to add.
Simply melt together the beeswax and coconut oil then the shea butter. Remove from heat and add in the desired amount of peppermint oil. Then carefully fill the lip balm tubes. Let cool, add labels and you’re done!
The initial cost adds up but I promise in the end it’s worth it! This makes for a great gift, lip balm for yourself and a fun activity to do with kids.
May the gift of peace, love, and happiness be yours this Christmas and throughout the year with a heart full of kindness towards all.
I haven’t decided yet what I’ll do with all the labels yet but so far this is the first little gift I made for a few friends. This quote is and printable is found here. Then I just packaged it up with my homemade lip balm with the Peace label. I love how it turned out!
Just simply print the labels using a good quality color printer onto adhesive labels. Cut the labels out and adhere to the lip balm.
- 2 Tablespoons Beeswax Pellets
- 2 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
- 2 Tablespoons Organic Shea Butter

- In a double boiler over medium heat, melt together the beeswax pellets and coconut oil, stirring until smooth. Add the shea butter and stir until melted and smooth. Remove from the stove top but keep the boiler over the hot water to keep the mixture liquid.

- Add the labels.
- Enjoy soft lips!
Tip: Add around 10 drops of peppermint essential oil and test on your skin or lips (being careful with the hot liquid) to see how many more drops you might like to add.
