Author: Katie Wells




  • 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.
  • Enjoy!


  • 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.
