All Natural Beeswax Lip Balm

  • 1 cup/240 ml coconut oil
  • 1 cup/240 ml olive oil
  • ⅓ cup/80 ml beeswax
  • ¼ cup/60 ml honey
  • 2 tablespoons/30 ml lecithin
  • ¾ ounce/20 g lemon grass
  • ⅕ ounce/5 g peppermint
  • 1 lemon, juiced
Magical Butter MB2 Machine
How To
  1. Place all the ingredients except beeswax and lecithin into your MagicalButter machine, and secure the head.
  2. Press the Temperature button, and select 160ºF/71°C; then press the 1 Hour/Oil button.
  3. Once the cycle is completed, filter the mixture, and rinse out the pitcher.
  4. Pour the infused oils back into the pitcher. Add beeswax and lecithin, and secure the head.
  5. Press the Temperature button, and select 160ºF/71°C; then press the 1 Hour/Oil button again.
  6. Pour the hot lip balm from the machine directly into your sterilized containers immediately after the cycle ends. NOTE: DO NOT USE THE FILTER in this step! (The wax in the lip balm would begin hardening while being poured, ruining the filter.)
  7. While everything is still warm, use a paper towel to wipe the machine clean of any excess wax.  (DO NOT add cold water to the machine when running a cleaning cycle. This will not clean the machine; instead, the cold water will make the wax stick to everything.)

My endless search for an all-natural lip balm has come to an end with this custom recipe. I took my favorite herbs and infused them into a rich mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, and beeswax. You will get excellent coverage for your lips without harsh chemicals or other irritants. Many store-bought lip balms contain alcohol and an excessive amount of menthol, which can create dependency on the product. For a less waxy version, I recommend using less beeswax and more coconut oil.
