I think Step one should be....find some small but interesting tins... I've seen lip balm made in lovely little store bought ...and upcycled mint tins.... however I went for something I had on hand... some old Maya Road embellishment tins... it pays to be a hoarder sometimes!

I'm  not sure why I didn't make these sooner...they were incredibly easy... and make a lovely little gift.

Once the lip balm tins were finished.... I created a very simple stitched calico bag and a gift tag....and they were done.


  • 1 Tablespoon of Beeswax
  • 3 Tablespoons of Carrier oil
  • 21/2 Teaspoons of Shea Butter
  • 4 - 5 drops of Essential Oil (I used Wild Orange - Peppermint would also be lovely)
  • Suitable tins or jars


  • Melt the wax...coconut oil and Shea butter in a bowl over heat ( I used a small ceramic bowl sitting in a saucepan of water)
  • Remove from the heat and quickly add in the Essential Oils
  • Carefully pour into your tins or jars and allow to set.
  • Create a simple calico bag to fit the tin.
  • Make a little gift tag
