I remember my grandmother always having s flower-scented soap, usually lilac or rose. My luxurious rose lip balm smells exactly like that, only it’s not because of some synthetic aroma but thanks to a 100 % natural rose wax.
The rose wax is one of my favorite ingredients because it retains the natural rose scent. It’s not a cheap wax but if you’re going for a 100 % natural scent, it’s worth investing into. Its scent is so intense and its solidifying effect so good that you don’t need to use much.

- 2 g of rose wax
- 2 g of beeswax
- 6 g of sweet almond oil
- 6 g of wheat sprout oil
- 4 g of almond butter
- 3 lip balm containers
Rose wax is soothing and softening and smells just great. Sweet almond oil and almond butter have softening effects and are full of vitamins. Wheat sprout oil provides vitamin E and elasticity and beeswax makes the lip balm solid. I used white wax without any scent.
How to make the rose lip balm
As always, before you start desinfect all the tools.
Put all the ingredients in a bowl and place the bowl in a water bath until the ingredients melt. Make sure the water doesn’t find its way into the bowl!
Stir the mixture a little and very carefully, you don’t want to stir fast and make bubbles. When everything is melted, switch off the stove and fill the lip balm containers. I find the syringe to be the best tool for this.
When the balm becomes solid, the center will lower and there will be a little hole. With these amounts you’ll be left with a little more to use and you can fill the containers some more to even the lip balm.
Put the finished lip balms in the fridge and your natural honey lip balm is ready to use!
