  • Use a double boiler on low heat to melt all ingredients.
  • Remove from heat once melted.
  • Fill lip balm tins and let cool for up to an hour to firm up.

How to Use DIY Carrier Oil Stick:

  • Just swipe back and forth on skin to desired amount of carrier oil, and then add essential oil of choice. Voila! A cheap option to use carrier oils on the go without the mess. I consider a swipe back and forth about 2-3 drops of liquid carrier oil. Dilute more with the carrier oil stick as needed.


  • Cost Breakdown $0.34 for almond oil ($10.88 for 16 oz. almond oil) $0.75 for coconut oil ($12.04 for 16 oz. coconut oil) $0.68 for beeswax pastilles ($14.59 for 16 oz. of beeswax) $0.16 for empty lip balm tube ($7.97 for 50 empty tubes)
  • Total = $1.94 for 10 DIY carrier oil sticks OR about $0.20 per stick!
  • And if you wanted to get a 2 oz. twist-up container to make a bigger DIY carrier oil stick, the total cost would be about $1.94 total!
