I am a chapstick-o-holic! If I don’t have my chapstick on me, my day s ruined!
I used to spend SO much money on chapstick it was insane. I spent about $3.50 per tube, and man if I lost it, that was money lost! And I went through them like crazy! It really is an addiction.
Making chapstick is essentially what got me into making all my all natural products. Once I learned that I could do it, and how easy it was to make, I started looking into making even more!!! Check out my All natural body butter recipe for more!!
I have been perfecting my products for years, seeing what does and doesn’t work, and I am finally ready to share what I have learned! and the recipes I have created!!!
This is literally THE BEST DIY All Natural chapstick recipe hands down! It is easy and doesn’t take long at all. Follow me as I give you a step by step of the process.
Let’s start with the ingredients:
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil (Buy Here)
- 3 Tbsp Bees Wax (Buy Here)
- 1/4 Cup Sunflower Oil (Buy Here)
- 1/4 Tsp Vitamin E Oil (Buy Here)
- 1/8 Tsp Lanolin (Buy Here)
- 2 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil (Buy Here)
- 12 Drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Buy Here)
- Chapstick Containers (Buy Here)
Step 1: Measure out the bees wax, and coconut oil, and place in double boiler. If you do not have a double boiler, I use a larger mixing bowl, on top of a sauce pan that had water in it. Melt them down to a liquid. The beeswax will take longer to melt. I also like to use the bees wax pellets, but you can also get the bars, and it works just as well. Once it is a melted liquid, add your sunflower oil, vitamin E oil, and Lanolin. Mix it all together.
Step 2: Add your essential oils, and mix it some more. You can test it out to see if it has the flavoring you want. Let a little bit of it cool on your finger, and rub it on your lips. If you think it needs more mint or other flavorings, add more.
Step3: Using a dropper, or measuring cup, add the melted liquid into the chapstick tubes. I like to use a small measuring cup, because it goes faster, but is a bit more messier. Using a small dropper is cleaner, but is more time consuming. If the mixture starts to harden before you are done, you can melt it over the stove again, or even stick it in the microwave to melt.
Let the chapstick tubes cool, place the caps on each one, and BAM! you are all done! This recipe usually makes about 20 chapsticks for me, and these last me forever!
