How to Make Natural Tinted Lip Balm - open containers of 6 shades of lip balmMaking your own lip balm is wonderful because you know what ingredients are going in them, and you can control the scents and colours. Here, I'll show you how to make six shades by using ground turmeric and beetroot powder. This is not only for colour's sake, but for the great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Please click on the link below to learn how to make your own beetroot powder at home. The same method can be used to make your own turmeric powder if you can get your hands on turmeric roots. :)

I made six containers of balm in two batches; one for ones without beets, and one that included the beets. For each batch, I used about 12 to 13 drops of essential oil, then just played with pigments before transferring to their containers. You can skip the essential oil if you want yours unscented, but I like peppermint oil for the scent, and for the lip-plumping effect.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 lip balms

  3. Stir the mixture around to help it all melt. When you can't see any lumps and it's smooth, it's ready. Shut off heat. If used as is, you'd have a plain lip balm. Just pour into a container, if you so desire.

  5. To get a very pretty clear shimmer balm, add a bit of edible glitter to your melted mixture. Add some essential oil here if you're using it. 10-13 drops for a batch of 3 containers.

I run an after-school craft program for middle and high school grade students. They will love this project! Thank you for posting!

Do you know if I could use all coconut oil instead of castor oil? I wouldn't know where to purchase that item.
