Peppermint Lip Balm

The holidays are fast approaching. And I'm sure if you are like me you are trying to figure out what to buy everyone. Why not make some DYI presents? This peppermint lip balm is WONDERFUL! Everyone I have made it for always comes back asking for more. My oldest
daughter carries one with her everywhere. 

The ingredients leave your lips moisturized and soft. And the peppermint essential oil infused into the balm just gives it an added benefit. 

Not only does peppermint essential oil smell wonderful and feel wonderful going on your lips (I love the tingling sensation :) But it also has many other benefits as well. So let's talk a little about what peppermint essential oil can do for you. 

Peppermint essential oil is steam distilled from leaves and stems. It's plant origin comes from North America, the Mediterranean area and Great Britain. Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil has a strong, clean, fresh and minty aroma. It is so potent and pure that ONE DROP delivers the effectiveness of 26 cups of pure peppermint tea. (Less is more when it come to Young Living Essential Oils.)

Peppermint oil is one of oldest and most highly regarded herbs for supporting our digestive system. 

How many of you suffer from occasional head tension/pressure? I know I do from time to time. And thank goodness for my Young Living Peppermint Oil. I carry it in my purse to always have on hand. Applying peppermint oil onto the forehead has been very effective for me. 

Here's my recipe for my Peppermint Lip Balm. Hope you love it!!


2 Part Mango Butter (Where to find)
1 Part Coconut Oil (Where to find)
1 Part Beeswax Pastilles (Where to find)
Dash of  Grapeseed Oil (Where to find)
12-15 drops Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil

*Here is where I buy my empty Lip Balm Containers as well*


  1. In a double broiler or glass bowl melt all ingredients on LOWEST HEAT possible.
  2. Once melted, remove from heat.
  3. Add 12-15 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil and stir
  4. Quickly transfer to empty lip balm containers as it will start to harden rather fast. (Be sure your containers are ready to go.)
  5. Add your Peppermint Lip Balm label. *Tip: Be sure the outside of your container isn't greasy or your label won't stick. You can use some rubbing alcohol to clean the outside of the lip balm container if needed.*
  6. That's it! Enjoy!!
** To get a perfect lip balm top with no hole in the middle (I'm too much of a perfectionist), pour just past the little twist pin. Let the balm cool slightly. Then top off with additional balm**
