Ginger Lip Balm

Posted on


This is a natural, spicy lip balm with no unnecessary chemicals added. Ginger fans will love this, however by varying the essential oil used there are no limits to the possibilities for this recipe…:o)



You will need:


20ml grated beeswax

30ml sweet almond oil

10ml castor oil

5ml clear honey

2 drops ginger essential oil





Place all the ingredients except the ginger essential oil into a double boiler or bain marie and heat until the beeswax has melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the ginger essential oil. Pour into a clean glass jar with a screw-top lid.


Tip: If you prefer a coloured lip balm, try adding a small amount of a warm-coloured lipstick e.g. bronze, peach, brown etc. when melting the beeswax, honey and oils.
