Homemade Lip Chap Recipe
Easily make and customize your own homemade lip chap with all natural ingredients.
Add about an inch of water to the bottom of a small pan.
Place on the stove and turn on to medium heat.
Place a small (pint size or smaller) jar in the water, being careful not to get any water inside the jar.
Add all the ingredients except the essential oils to the glass jar and slowly melt, making sure not to get any water in the jar.
When all the ingredients are melted, stir well and turn off the heat, but leave jar in the water to keep warm.
Stir in the essential oils.
Use a glass dropper to quickly fill the lip chap containers.
The mixture will settle slightly as it cools, so I top off the containers after about 2 minutes as they start to harden.
Let sit without touching for several hours or until completely hardened.
Store in a cool dry place for up to a year.
- Increase or decrease the amount of essential oil for your preference.
- I use 2 tablespoons each of the butter(s) and coconut oil and 1 tablespoons of beeswax to make about 18 tubes.
- This will make a medium firm lip chap. If you prefer a firmer and longer lasting lip chap, you can add more beeswax, up to double the recommended amount. If you prefer a smoother and more oily lip chap, you can reduce the amount of beeswax.
