This DIY Rose Lip Balm Recipe with Shea butter is all natural and moisturizing.
Lip balm is one of the easiest products you can make yourself. Really, all you need is beeswax, Shea butter, and oil. I made several batches of herb-infused oils that finished up this week, so I jumped on the chance to make some new lip balm!
Having herb-infused oils already made is the way to go, y’all. Making them the same day gets tiring.
I absolutely love how these turned out! The scent is subtle, and it soaks into the lips without leaving them too oily. This will be especially awesome during the winter months, if you’re prone to dry lips.
If you already have rose infused oil, this recipe only takes about ten minutes to make. There’s nothing better than quick DIY! Coconut oil would be a wonderful alternative to almond oil, it’s just what I had on hand at the time.

- 3 tbsp Almond Oil
- 1.5 tbsp Dried Rose Buds
- 1.5 tbsp Shea Butter
- 1 tbsp Beeswax
- 3 drops Vitamin E Oil
- 4 drops Essential Oil of Choice
- 4 Lip Balm Containers
1. Infuse almond oil with dried rose buds.
If you don’t already have infused oil ready, you can make it the same day using the hot method. For an amount this small, I would simply make it in a double boiler on the stove. Simmer the oil and rose buds on low heat for 1 to 6 hours (or as long as you can stand). Strain the rose buds out and return to a clean double boiler on the stove.
2. In a double boiler, heat up infused oil, shea butter, and beeswax.
Heat the infused oil, shea butter and beeswax on the stove until melted.
3. Take off the heat and add vitamin e oil and essential oil.
Once fully melted, take the mixture off of the heat and quickly add vitamin e oil and essential oil.
4. Carefully pour into lip balm containers and add rose petals if desired.
It cools down pretty quickly, so you’ll need to move fast. I added rose petals for decoration. It’s certainly not necessary. This recipe filled four of my tiny lip balm containers.
I hope you enjoy! These would make great stocking stuffers. They should be good for at least a year, especially since there’s vitamin e oil in them. Vitamin e oil delays oxidation, and it’s great for repairing damaged and dry skin.
