My Homemade Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm is the perfect blend of beeswax and honey. In addition, I toss in some organic Coconut Oil, and Kokum Butter for a sweet tasting winner. This is a harder lip balm that will melt from the warmth of your finger to glide on and moisturize all year long.
Essential Oils For Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm
Ultimately, you can’t have a killer lip balm recipe without essential oils. This beeswax and honey lip balm is no exception. Due to being impatient for Summer, I added in both Peppermint and Rosemary essential oils.

Pro Tip: I change up the essential oils in this beeswax and honey lip balm all the time. Peppermint and Lavender is another fun blend to use!
What Is Kokum Butter?
*this post contains affiliate links Raw Kokum butter is a hard, crumbly butter that melts well. Unlike Cocoa Butter, Kokum has no scent. Because many people find Coconut Oil to be drying, I use Kokum butter in this recipe. Furthermore, I like Kokum’s moisturizing abilities even better than Shea Butter or Coco Butter.
Ingredients For Beeswax and Honey Lip Balm
*this post contains affiliate links
2 Tablespoons Beeswax
1 Tablespoon Organic Coconut Oil
1 Tablespoon Organic Raw Kokum Butter
1 Teaspoon Honey I like to jazz mine up with some DIY Manuka Honey!
6 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil
3 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
1. First, measure your beeswax, coconut oil, and mango butter into a glass or metal container. I LOVE this melting pot that allowing me to pour right from it.
2. Heat the water until simmering, stirring until everything is melted. Don’t allow any water to get into the oil and butter mixture.
3. Next, remove the pan and add in the essential oils and honey. Stir.
4. Finally, add the liquid lip balm mixture into your containers. To help keep the honey incorporated evenly throughout the mixture, you’ll need to stir and pour, stir and pour.
Pro Tip: To prevent the ‘divots’ in the top of your tubes and metal containers, don’t pour until your mixture has cooled down some. The cooler the mixture the less divots, or indentations at the top of your containers.
Also, you can fill the mixture above the line for the container, until it forms a rounded top without pouring over.
So, there you have it, once your Honey and Beeswax Lip Balms cool to room temperature, they are ready to us!
Pro Tip: Sometimes when I use this combination of oils and butters, I get these little dots that look like they won’t melt all the way. Since they wind up incorporating into the lip balm as it cools, there’s nothing to worry about.

Because I’m working towards a more natural approach to bath and body products, I’ve been making more of my family’s products. Another benefit to homemade products is the costs savings!
