Gather your ingredients, then:

  1. In a small saucepan melt together the coconut oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, and honey over medium heat until liquid. Remove it from the heat, stir in the lavender essential oil, and set it aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add 2-3 cups of ice cubes and fill the bowl halfway with water. Place the saucepan over the ice bath and stir vigorously with a spatula until it becomes thick (but not completely solid). Be careful not to let any of the water splash into the wax. If it becomes too solid, remove it from the ice bath and let it warm up a bit.
  3. When the lip balm has become thick and emulsified, remove it from the ice bath, and portion it into 6-8 small containers.
