7 Different Homemade Lip Balm Recipes ...

By Jasmine

Have you ever considered trying out your own homemade lip balm recipes? Store bought lip balms or lipsticks always appear to be the more convenient route to take. However, creating your very own concoctions will teach you how to be money-conscious–especially if you're thinking about saving an extra few dollars here and there. You'll rarely run out of supplies and you'll learn how much fun is to make DIY lip balms. Plus, homemade lip balms tend to have natural properties, which will be very beneficial to the health of your lips. Check out a few of these inspired spinoff homemade lip balm recipes.

1 Coconut Rose

Coconut RoseFirst on our list of homemade lip balm recipes is the coconut rose by My Baking Addiction. What's so creative about the coconut rose lip balm is that it has rose petals in it! This lip balm comes in a cream and purple two-tone color-almost similar to a swirl. This mix is just so pretty and looks delicious at that. You can also find coconut, sweet almond oil, beeswax, and shea Butter in this lip balm.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup beeswax pellets/pearls
4 tbsp. coconut oil
4 tbsp. shea butter
1 tsp. coconut extract
1 tsp. sweet almond oil
1/4 cup fresh or dried rose petals

Directions:
Melt everything together into a small saucepan on low heat. Once it's cooled enough to handle, mix in the rose petals. Pour the mixture into your little tubes and patiently wait until it hardens.

2 Peppermint

PeppermintWho doesn't like the taste and smell of peppermint? The great thing about peppermint is that it is so cooling to the skin and makes for a great aromatherapy. This recipe by Beautylish is quite simple. All that's needed is peppermint oil (of course), a carrier oil of choice, beeswax pellets, and lipstick shavings (for color). An Altoids mint box can be used to place the mix in. Your friends will definitely be shocked when they expect mints to be in your tin, but instead find this delicious peppermint lip balm.

6 to 8 squirts of peppermint oil (or according to preference)
2 tbsp. of a carrier oil for dilution
Shaved red lipstick pieces for tint

4 Minty Chocolate

Minty ChocolateCocoa powder is, of course, one of the many ingredients you can find in this lip balm. According to the Crunchy Betty blog, this lip balm is “peppermint-chocolaty goodness.” One thing that makes this recipe very healthy is the Vitamin E oil. Not only will the peppermint oil be cooling and moisturizing to your lips, but the Vitamin E will help to heal any scars or skin cell damage. During the summertime, Vitamin E oil also acts as a sunscreen, protecting your lips against ultraviolet rays.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. beeswax pellets/pearls
1/2 tbsp. shea butter
1/2 tbsp. cocoa butter
2 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp cocoa powder
6 to 8 drops peppermint oil
1/8 tsp vitamin E oil

Directions:
Combine beeswax, all butters, and coconut oil in a saucepan or microwave safe bowl. Next, melt the mixture on low heat or in the microwave. Finally, add in the rest of the ingredients and place in a container for cooling.

5 Kool-Aid

Kool-AidHow exciting it is to know that Kool-Aid cannot only be used for hair coloring, but also as a color additive in lip balms?! This recipe includes beeswax, nourishing coconut oil, and petroleum jelly. Little Willow Tree recommends that you heat everything but the Kool-Aid in a microwavable safe bowl first. After letting it cool, it appears to be pretty moisturizing and colorful.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. beeswax pellets/pearls
4 tbsp. coconut oil
4 tbsp. petroleum jelly or Vaseline
1 pack of Kool-Aid (any color)

Directions:
Heat beeswax, jelly, and oil in the microwave. Lastly, mix in your favorite Kool-Aid pack and let it sit. It should be ready to use after it completely hardens.

6 Lip Stain

Lip StainHow about a lip balm that acts as a lip stain? Like the Kool-Aid lip balm concoction, How Does She's recipe also uses a flavored, powdered drink mix. Instead of Kool-Aid, Crystal Light packages are used to give your lips a tint. Add in some multi-purpose jelly or petroleum jelly and just stir. It's pretty simple and sweet. Although the lip balm makes for a great colorful gloss, you may just be tempted to lick your lips every now and then. I know I would!

Ingredients:
3 oz. of Vaseline or petroleum jelly
1 pack of Crystal Light
1 small flat round container

Directions:
Pour the jelly in the container until it fills up. Pour in your favorite pack of Crystal Light and stir. Your moisturizing lip stain should be ready to use.

7 Hemp and Honey

Hemp and HoneyFinally, the hemp and honey lip balm will leave your lips silky. One thing that I admire about this recipe is that honey is one of its most important ingredients. Honey is well known for its antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial healing properties. Honey can help with scars, inflammation, or cold sores. Therefore, this DIY lip balm courtesy of Garden Therapy will always leave your lips in the best condition.

Ingredients:
1 tbsp. beeswax pellets/pearls
1/4 tsp. carnauba wax
1/2 tbsp. shea butter
1/2 tbsp. cocoa butter
1 tbsp. almond oil
1 tsp. hemp oil
2 tsp. manuka honey

Directions:
Heat all wax, butters, and the almond oil on low heat. Remove from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Pour into tubes or containers and wait for it to solidify or place it in your refrigerator for quicker cooling.
