Tinted Lip Balm

Today I’m sharing my favorite tinted DIY lip balm recipe with my favorite essential oils. It’s a fun project that takes no more than 5 minutes to make! You’ll have so much fun the first time that you’ll want to make more to give away as a Christmas gift to friends.

With a natural lip balm, you don’t have to worry about all the questionable 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 and prefers trying a natural product, this is one of the most perfect DIY recipes we can make.

The great thing about making your own products is that you know exactly what’s in them. We used a little bit of coconut oil and grapeseed oil in this easy recipe, but you can definitely use sunflower oil, mango butter, jojoba oil, avocado oil, shea butter, and sweet almond oil, depending on the texture you want.

And of course, our favorite essential oils!

For a softer lip balm, you can add vitamin e oil – only a small amount will be enough.

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 – and they are really simple ingredients. Some of this you may already have in your cupboards like coconut oil or grapeseed oils.

If you have a double boiler you will need that as well. If not, you can do what I do which is to use a small saucepan and a glass bowl in low heat.

You won’t believe how easy this recipe is!

Easiest Recipe 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 and its antioxidant properties. 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!

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