Fantastic Lip, Hand and Foot Balm

While this do-it-yourself treat is not cheap, I think there is no price you can put on knowing exactly what ingredients go into the products you use on your body. Plus, you can switch up the essential oils for the season. I think an orange-lemon-basil would be great for the summer while the vanilla-peppermint is just right for the holidays. 

Author The Cowgirl Gourmet got this idea from Elana's Pantry


  • 1/4 cup shea butter
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 ounce beeswax grated
  • 10 drops essential oil
  • 10 drops essential oil


  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over very low heat and stir until melted.

  2. Remove from the heat, stir to combine and then add essential oils.

  3. Pour mixture into a clean 4 oz. mason jar or smaller jars or containers if you want to make several as gifts.

  4. The mixture will harden up but still be soft enough to massage into your hands and feet at bedtime. Or onto your lips any time!
