DIY Homemade lip balm with Crayon

You’ll Need:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 non-toxic high-quality crayon

(I picked a non-toxic crayon pack from the stationary shop. Make sure you read the ingredients mentioned on the pack of the crayons carefully and also confirm with the seller that it’s non-toxic.

  • Empty lip balm container

Steps to make your own lip balm at home:

  1. Pick any crayon of your choice and unwrap it. Remember one crayon for one lip balm.
  2. Break the crayon stick into small pieces, place it in a bowl and add one tablespoon of coconut oil to it
  3. Heat water in a pan and switch it off once it comes to a boiling point. Carefully place the bowl onto the pan. (use a steel or glass bowl)
  4. Melt and stir until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Pour your crayon lip balm into the empty container and refrigerate it for 20 mins.

DIY Homemade lip balm with vaseline

You’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp Vaseline
  • Lipstick of your choice ( optional)
  • Essential Oil (optional)


  1. Mix the vaseline and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  2. Cut a tiny amount of lipstick of your choice (I prefer pink) and add it to the bowl.
  3. If you don’t like to add any color to your lip balm and just want it to smell good, then add 3 drops of your favorite essential oil.
  4. Using a double boiler method melt all the ingredients well.
  5. Pour the mixture into an empty container and leave it to harden.
