5-Minute DIY Tinted Lip Balm

I love making homemade beauty products! There are so many fun things you can make that area all-natural, easy and cost way less than they do in the store. Including an amazing tinted lip balm!

At first, it feels a little overwhelming but once you make one, you will realize just how easy it really is.

5-Minute DIY Tinted Lip Balm

Tinted Lip Balm

Today I’m sharing my favorite tinted lip balm recipe. It takes no more than 5 minutes to make! I love this recipe so much and it makes a fantastic little DIY gift.

You don’t have to worry about all the extra ingredients and allergens like store bought lip balms (turns out a lot of them have soy in them.) And as someone who is sensitive and has a lot of allergies this is perfect.

It gives your lips a little color and keeps them soft and hydrated!

Ingredients Needed To Make This 5-Minute DIY Tinted Lip Balm

This tinted lip balm doesn’t require a lot of ingredients, just a little over a handful. Some of this you may already have in your cupboards like coconut oil or grapeseed oils.

If you have a double broiler you will need that as well. If not, you can do what I do which is to use a small sauce pan and a glass bowl.

How To Make Tinted Lip Balm:

Step 1

Heat water in your saucepan – you don’t want it to start boiling, so just watch it so it doesn’t pour over.

Step 2

Put the beeswax, coconut oil and grapeseed oil in the glass bowl and sit it right on top of the sauce pan.

Step 3

For color, grab a tube of lipstick and shave off a tiny amount with a butter knife. The amount you want depends on the color you want. I had a very bright pink shade and so I used very little.

Step 4

Melt all of it together and once you turn the heat off, add in four drops of the essential oils you want to use. I used Lavender because I just love the scent. If you would like the smell stronger then use more oils, I prefer it to be really subtle.

Step 5

Let it cool and you’re all done!

Notes:

This makes about 12 pods. If you like the traditional chapstick tubes better, those work well also.
