You can easily make your own nourishing lip balm at home, and the key ingredient is none other than shea butter. This DIY guide will show you how to make a great shea butter lip balm that will keep your lips soft, smooth, and perfectly hydrated.

Why Shea Butter?

Shea butter is a natural emollient extracted from the seeds of the shea tree. It’s packed with essential fatty acids and vitamins that make it a powerhouse ingredient for skincare. Its moisturizing properties make it ideal for creating a lip balm that not only hydrates but also locks in moisture, protecting your lips from harsh weather conditions.

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • Shea Butter: 2 tablespoons of pure, unrefined shea butter.
  • Coconut Oil: 1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil.
  • Beeswax: 1 tablespoon of beeswax pellets.
  • Essential Oil (optional): A few drops of your preferred essential oil for fragrance. Popular choices include lavender, peppermint, or orange oil.


  • Gather Your Ingredients: Assemble all your ingredients and materials, including a microwave-safe bowl, a spoon, and lip balm containers.
  • Melt the Shea Butter and Beeswax: In the microwave-safe bowl, combine the shea butter and beeswax. Heat the mixture in 20-second intervals until fully melted. Be cautious not to overheat.
  • Add Coconut Oil: Stir in the coconut oil until you achieve a uniform liquid consistency.
  • Incorporate Essential Oil: If you want to add a pleasant fragrance to your lip balm, now is the time. Drop in your chosen essential oil and stir thoroughly.
  • Pour into Containers: Carefully pour the liquid lip balm mixture into your lip balm containers. You can use small tins, lip balm tubes, or any small, clean, and sanitized container.
  • Cool and Set: Let your lip balm cool and set. This will usually take around 15–20 minutes.
