Freshly made: Organic tinted lip balm

If you need an original idea for Christmas gifts, make a tinted lip balm in unique shades. It’s very easy!

You need virgin coconut oil and a pinch of your favorite mineral blush color (shimmer, pink, coral, beige). You can add 2 drops of natural vanilla extract if you want a nice smell. In summer I like the fresh smell of lavender essential oil (just a drop).

Preparation: In a pan with hot water put a little jar with coconut oil and dissolve it, so that it becomes liquid. Mix your favorite colors inside, add two drops of vanilla extract. When cool, your balm is made to care your lips. You can have fun with different colors and effects, mix 2 colors, experiment with shimmer or matte effects. Enjoy!

Find also some nice glass or plastic empty pots and put inside the balm. Make a nice gift package when the balm inside is already solid.

In the picture below is my home-made lip balm in a shimmer coral golden shade. If you want a stronger color, just put more mineral pigment.

Here is also an example of my work, where I wanted to achieve a natural appearance of sheer and well cared lips with a natural lip balm and just a touch of natural color.

    Thank you so much for this idea! I’ve been going around for months looking for an inexpensive organic no-fuss tinted balm. Since I can’t find anything, better to make onemyself. I have mango butter, but the problem is even after I melt it, it’s still a little gritty when it cools down. Coconut oil seems much smoother, easier and faster to work with…plus it won’t go to waste since it has many uses and it’s edible!

      Hi Zuri! Yes making this lip balm is super easy. You should use coconut oil, cause it’s also easy to work with. If you want a very hydrating lip balm, you can add even some jojoba oil to it to get even more moisture. And if you will use beeswax, you’d better not put too much. Anyway, good luck and if you need any help, just ask 🙂

  5. I’m in tropical country and the coconut oil is always in liquid form, I cant make that lips balm 😦
