~ How to Make Homemade Lip Balm Directly in  Happy Hollow Glass Jars.~

This is a very quick DIY run through of how I make homemade lip balm (and well, just a good dry skin salve period) directly in my borosilicate glass jars and tubs. The basic recipe can be followed here.  Don’t hesitate to customize and be creative in finding your favorite flavors and textures.

More bees wax means a more solid-firm product which is great if you live in hot climates where the coconut oil will melt faster. In Texas I made a version with extra wax to keep a more solid state.

Many many homemade lip balm recipes can be found on line! Any of them will work for this.


Happy Hollow Glass containers are 100% properly annealed borosilicate. Commonly known as Pyrex they have incredible qualities that make them a popular choice for re-use.

Check out all jars and vials here – Just be sure to pick a style with a large enough opening (ie. for your finger) to use as a balm tub or you’ll be stuck using q-tips to get it out.  I will be adding a new link HERE shortly to a category specifically for tub sized worthy balm jars with wide mouths.

Borosilicate glass is thermal resistant meaning it is safe to transfer from one extreme temperature to the next without shocking and breaking the glass. This is why they are great to make directly in the boiling water or microwave without the fear of cracking.

They can be reused endless times and they are generally larger than most regular balm tubes meaning months and months of use before you run out! In which case of course you just do it all over again now that you’re a PRO! You can clean and sanitize them by simply boiling or tossing them in the dishwasher! I recommend the silverware basket. #Zerowaste #PlasticFree #VeganFriendly
