My very first experience with sleep balm was right at a year ago when I was in Austin for SXSW. I was so skeptical when I purchased it, but I was having a hard time sleeping in the hotel. What was even crazier was when I woke up the next morning and realized that I actually slept better after I had tried it. I have been using a sleep balm ever since! Now that I have essential oils and create with them, I thought this would be another perfect idea for me to make. DIY Sleep Balm.
To make this All Natural Sleep Balm you will need to have a few things on hand. This is a list of what I used.
- 2 oz Tin Container
- (2) 1 oz. Beeswax Bar
- 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
- Lavender and Bergamot Essential Oil (These are the essential oils that I use)
DIY Sleep Balm
Start mixing your coconut oil and beeswax over a low to medium heat. (It may be easier to shred the beeswax bars before melting.) If you don’t shred the beeswax bars it just takes a little longer to melt.
Once you have your coconut oil and beeswax melted, allow to cool slightly. After a little cooling period, add the Lavender and Bergamot essential oils. I used about 15 drops Lavender and 8 drops Bergamot. Mix well.
Then pour the sleep balm into the containers and allow to sit until formed back into a solid mix. It should look like this.
To make it pretty, create some fun little printable labels with sticker paper and attach them to the tins. I created these fun labels and love the way they look.

I love this recipe because you fill up a few tins to use, or you can give them to family or friends!
