Spa(ahhh) Day Sunday: DIY Tinted Lip Balm Or Try Burt’s Bees Natural Tinted Lip Balm

It’s probably the first beauty product that made you feel grown up — lip balm. And even now that you’re all grown up, you still need the luxury of a lip balm in your beauty arsenal.

If you are a DIY girl, we have the perfect recipe for you for a tinted lip balm. We swiped this recipe from Wellness Mama and we love it. It’s the perfect project for a Spa(ahhh) Day Sunday with the kids or to just take your mind off the small stuff!

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon beeswax pastilles (or 2 Tablespoons if making in lip chap containers)
  • 1 tablespoon Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter
  • This base recipe will fill about 6 small tins or about 10 plastic lip chap containers.
  1. Melt the coconut oil, beeswax and shea/cocoa butter in a glass jar sitting in a small pot of simmering water (not boiling) and stir gently until melted (be careful not to get any water into the mixture).
  2. When melted, carefully stir in any colors or essential oils, if using. My favorite is lemon and vanilla for scent and a little red coloring or cocoa powder for color. A couple drops of peppermint will make it similar to Burt’s Bees Lip Chap.
  3. Once colors/scents are mixed in, use a dropper to transfer to tins or lip chap containers. Let cool.
  4. Apply the versions in the tins with your finger or use the version in plastic container as you would regular lip chap.


Optional Add-Ins For Red Hues: ⅛ teaspoon of beet root powder or 1 drop of natural red food coloring with no chemical additives.
NOTE: Add these very slowly as a little goes a long way!
For Brown/Tan Hues: ¼ teaspoon (or more for color) of organic cocoa powder, a tiny pinch of cinnamon or turmeric to get the shade you want
For Scent: A drop of essential oil of choice (optional)
Or you can just grab a tube or two of Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm:
