Citrus IPA Lip Balm Recipe

This might just be your new favorite lip balm. Crafted to resemble a citrus IPA this lip balm contains Hops and Orange oil. Like a refreshing ale, you'll keep coming back to this lip balm.



This recipe makes 12 lip balms (5 ml size).


  • The easiest way to make lip balms is to buy a lip balm tray. These trays hold up to 50 lip balms and allow you to pour the hot melted oils and butter from your Pyrex cup into the tubes easily.
  • A Pyrex measuring cup
  • A pan that the Pyrex cup fits into
  • Gather all ingredients and measure them in separate little bowls.


  1. Fill a pot about 1/3 way with water and place a Pyrex measuring cup in the pan.
  2. Add the beeswax to the Pyrex cup, put the burner on medium- enough for a simmer or low boil.
  3. Stir the beeswax until almost melted.
  4. Add the jojoba oil, stir and take off the heat as soon as it is melted.
  5. Drop the essential oils into the mixture and blend well.
  6. Stir and pour into the lip balm tubes. If the Pyrex lip is not thin enough for pouring into the tubes, you can also use a plastic pipette to siphon up the hot lip balm and squirt it into each tube. It takes longer this way but is more precise. If the lip balm starts to harden, place the Pyrex back into the hot water and it will stay liquid. Fill the tubes to the very top so once hardened, the top is smooth.
  7. As soon as the liquid has begun to harden (this happens within a few minutes), gently pull the lip tubes out from the bottom, cover and allow to harden a few hours before use.

Note: To clean your tray: We find it easiest to wipe it off with a paper towel first, to get as much of the extra lip balm off as possible. Then soak in hot water, scrub and run through a dishwasher.
