DIY Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm

Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm Recipe


I’m going to be totally honest (and totally “basic”) here for a minute.

I live for pumpkin spice all the things.

I love pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice diffuser blends, pumpkin spice scented lotions and balms…I probably go a bit overboard, but what can I say?

I love it.

What I don’t love? The weird chemicals that everyone puts in their pumpkin spice situations. That’s why last year I made my own pumpkin spice creamer (it’s so good), and pumpkin spice bath bombs.

This year, I’ve delved more into skincare, lip care, and body care than I used to (it’s totally addictive to be able to make your own stuff (and way cheaper than some of these things cost at the store).

Plus, homemade balms, lotions, and bath bombs make pretty awesome (and affordable) teacher gifts. Plus it gives the boys and I some ‘science’ time together because they totally help me with my little experiments.

Because I’m such a huge pumpkin spice fan, and I was rapidly running out of lip balm, I decided to take a stab at making my own take on a homemade pumpkin spice lip balm recipe.

And y’all? it turned out so so good! Both boys carry a tube in their backpacks, and I’m more than a little bit addicted.

Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm Recipe

Gather your supplies, as well as 6 lip balm tubes (or you can use small tubs if you like-I just prefer the portability of tubes, and so do my kids).

easy homemade lip balm recipePut the coconut oil, beeswax pellets, and cocoa butter into a glass measuring cup or a small glass mixing bowl and microwave it for 45 seconds.

Stir, and microwave for an additional 45 seconds or until the waxes and oils have fully melted. If you prefer, you can melt everything in a double boiler (I’m just impatient).pumpkin spice lip balm with essential oilsAdd the toasted pumpkin seed oil and your essential oils. Stir everything well to combine.

Carefully pour the mixture (that’s your liquid lip balm!) into the lip balm tubes and allow them to sit at room temperature for approximately one hour until they set.

If you’re in a hurry (we sure were), you can carefully chill them in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

While your homemade pumpkin spice lip balms are setting, be careful to keep them upright-I suggest sticking them in a bowl or Tupperware with rice to ensure that they don’t tip. Check out my homemade oatmeal bath bombs to help soothe your dry skin!

This recipe is so incredibly easy! Maybe I should do another flavor for the Christmas season…what do you think?
