Pink DIY Tinted Lip Balm with Essential Oils

Addicted to lip balm? So are we! We created an all-natural tinted lip balm that will soon become your go-to.

Instead of the typical aromatherapy lip balm we have come out with in the past, we decided to take it up a notch and made a tinted one! Our Pink Tinted Lip Balm provides subtle color to your lips, perfect for daily use.

It’s also important to keep our lips hydrated which is why we chose all-natural, lip-moisturizing ingredients to go with this recipe. We also added essential oils for a fresh aroma.

What’s in This Pink Tinted Lip Balm Recipe?

We use beeswax to achieve a more solid consistency for our lip balm recipes. Also, beeswax is great for the lips. It is incredibly nourishing and a very safe alternative to commercial waxes like paraffin. 

Coconut Oil (Solid)

Solid Coconut Oil is a treat to the lips. It locks in moisture leaving lips soft and smooth and can also soothe dry and chapped lips. That’s why we chose coconut oil as the base of our lip balm recipe.

Almond Oil

Of course, we want a moisturizing lip balm that glides easily, so we added more nourishing oils into the mix. Almond Oil is a great addition as it is a very light oil. It neutralizes the thickness of the beeswax and coconut oil. Like the other ingredients, it is also full of nutrients and is gentle and moisturizing on the lips.

Mica Powder

We provided a bright, natural, and ethically sourced mica powder to beautifully color your lip balm. Use less powder for a more subtle color, and use more for a darker color.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Grapefruit Essential Oil is a skin saver. It is packed with tons of properties that can help soothe chapped lips. Its sweet, citrusy, and fruity aroma will also uplift you.

Head Soothing Essential Oil Blend

Head Soothing Essential Oil Blend has a fresh and floral scent that provides calming benefits. When you’re having a tension headache, use this lip balm to soothe you.

Things to Remember When Using This Recipe

Always dilute an essential oil when using it on the skin. This essential oil recipe is unlikely to cause skin irritation when diluted properly. If the oil has been oxidized (left with the cap off for long periods of time) it is more likely to cause skin irritation. Check out this dilution chart for diluting this essential oil properly. 

If you are pregnant, consult your doctor prior to use.
