A Candy Cane Lip Balm Recipe for Sweet Sweet Lips this Christmas

Now here is a case of a moment on the lips means NOTHING on the hips! A completely calorie-free indulgence that’s lip-smacking good, and, hey, it smells great too: candy cane lip balm. This is one holiday treat that you’ll be pulling out all year round.

Candy Cane Lip Balm

Now this would make a great stocking stuffer wouldn’t it?Homemade Candy Cane Lip Balm

Here is the recipe:

Makes 12 tubes

Ingredients & Equipment


Make it!
Melt the oil and waxes in the double boiler. Remove from heat, add essential oils, and stir well.

Line up lip balm tubes on a level surface and carefully pour the melted oil and wax into each tube, filling only halfway (if you pour it all at once you may get a hole in the top of your lip balm once it cools).

It really helps if you have a double boiler where the top pot has a pour spout. If not, you can transfer the hot liquid into a measuring cup with a spout for easier pouring. Once the half-full lip balm has set, top up the rest of the tube. If you still get an uneven top when the balm has cooled completely, you can use a heat gun or lighter to level it out. Just be sure not to melt the tube!

Delicious and Festive Candy Cane Lip Balm


  1. Here’s a tip: I’m a beekeeper and for the first time, we tried making lip balm from our bees’ wax. I found the easiest way to corral the tubes is to cluster them all together and stretch a thick elastic band around the bunch. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then using a small plastic pipette, I was able to fill each very neatly. So fun!

  2. Hellow.
    I appreciate sharing your knowledge here. I tried to make some lipbalms but after some few days there was some white dots in the balm. Any know what could be the problem?
