1. Coconut Rose
First on our list of homemade lip balm recipes is the coconut rose by My Baking Addiction. What's so creative about the coconut rose lip balm is that it has rose petals in it! This lip balm comes in a cream and purple two-tone color-almost similar to a swirl. This mix is just so pretty and looks delicious at that. You can also find coconut, sweet almond oil, beeswax, and shea Butter in this lip balm.
1/4 cup beeswax pellets/pearls
4 tbsp. coconut oil
4 tbsp. shea butter
1 tsp. coconut extract
1 tsp. sweet almond oil
1/4 cup fresh or dried rose petals
Melt everything together into a small saucepan on low heat. Once it's cooled enough to handle, mix in the rose petals. Pour the mixture into your little tubes and patiently wait until it hardens.
