DIY: Coco-Calm Lip Balm


Taking some cues from aromatherapy for this silky lip balm recipe, we decided to try a combination of lavender and clary sage. Both of these sweet and floral essential oils are associated with calming properties that also uplifts. It turned out to be a wonderful blend!

I love to keep this balm on my nightstand and use it just before bed, since lavender is a classic calming herb and clary sage is known as a dream enhancing herb. The scent helps calm energy lingering from the day as I drift off to sleep. 

Of course, you can always experiment with your favorite essential oils to create a custom fragrance, or leave them out completely and allow the cocoa butter and coconut oil scents to shine through. This is a great basic formula that is easily transformable!



  1. Place chopped beeswax and oils in a small pot or glass measuring cup and gently heat in the top of a double boiler until the beeswax has melted.
  2. Once melted, remove from the stove top and stir in the essential oils and Vitamin E oil.
  3. Immediately pour the mixture into lip balm containers.
  4. Allow your balm to cool completely before capping the containers.
    Makes enough to fill 10 lip balm tubes or three 1/2 oz tins. Enjoy!

 I will leave you with this beauty as inspiration....love, love, love clary sage!
