Natural Lip Balm Ingredients

Coconut oil is moisturizing and has natural healing properties. I don't like the smell of coconut, so I use organic refined coconut oil.

Dish Soap

Avocado oil or sweet almond oil Both of these liquid oils are soothing and moisturizing. Beeswax is the ingredient that solidifies the lip balm and gives it the right "slip" on your lips.

Optional Ingredients

Castor oil If you'd like your lip balm to be extra-glossy, replace a bit of the avocado oil with castor oil.
