Lemon Chamomile Calming Lip Balm Recipe
Fall is almost here, which means that chapped lip days are getting closer. This recipe helps keep even the driest lips moisturized and calm with chamomile infused oils and vitamin e. This may be my new favorite lip balm! My hubs just literally said to me (with no prompt) “this lip balm is really good!” It has an amazing warm lemon smell and is so silky smooth! Lip balm making is just so fun! You have to try it!
Lemon Chamomile Lip Balm
- approximately 15 lip balm tubes (I purchase mine here)
- 2 tbs bees wax (grated and pressed into the measure spoon)
- 2 tbs shea butter
- 1 tbs plus 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tbs chamomile flowers
- 1 tsp vitamin e
- 10-20 drops lemon essential oil
Directions: To make chamomile infused coconut oil place at least 1/2 cup of coconut oil in a double boiler or small sauce crockpot with 1 tbs of chamomile flowers and place on low medium heat for at least 1 hour. Make sure to check there is enough water frequently. After the oil starts to turn a yellow color turn off the heat, and strain through a fine metal strainer or coffee filter. You only need 1 tbs plus 2 tsp of the infused oil, so cover it and save it for later.
In a double boiler or very small sauce crockpot melt bees wax, shea butter, chamomile infused coconut oil, and wait a few minutes until everything melts. Once the ingredients have melted turn heat off and mix in 1 tsp vitamin e oil and 10-20 drops of lemon essential oil. Place in tins or empty lip balm tubes and let cool on the counter. I know it might be hard, but wait until completely cooled! Enjoy!

I party here…
I’m a lip balm fanatic yet have never tried to make my own. The sound of this one may just convince me to try! 🙂
Great post! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe. I just finished making this lip balm and I <3 it. I never thought about infusing chamomile with the oil. That was a bonus for me. All in all this is a nice and smooth lip balm. Not to oily nor to waxy. This is a keeper. I hope you don't mind but I would love to share your recipe on my blog (of course I would add a link for them to come here:)
I’m so happy you loved it Renae!!! I would love if you share it!
Do you think camomile tea would work in place of flowers?
I would think so! Great question.
I love lemon cookies, cake, in my tea ext. Lip balm sounds delightful. Pinned and shared on Facebook:) Gotta try this!
This sounds so good! I’m planning on making my own lip balm soon, and will have to try this one out too!

This is such a great idea – I love lemon scented everything!
Me too! My husband does even more and loved this recipe!
This looks incredible! Pining for later :o)
Try a pinch of beet powder for tinted lip balm!
Gwen I tried to tint lip balm with beet powder before and could not get it to work. It just san at the bottom no matter how hard I tried. And I tried and tried and tried ha. Any tips?
I guess you have to infuse the beetroot powder as well.
How many regular sized tubes will this recipe fill?
