How to Make Natural Tinted Lip Balm

Making 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

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. For the first batch of 3 balms add 1/2 Tbsp beeswax, 1/2 Tbsp shea butter, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 Tbsp castor oil to your double boiler.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Stir with a stick, add more glitter if desired.
  5. Pour into a container. It will harden up as it sits. Twist on the cap.
  6. Add a bit of turmeric powder to the rest of the melted balm mixture in the double boiler, then stir very well. Make sure there are no lumps of turmeric powder.
  7. Pour into container.
  8. If you'd like a bright yellow, which looks like a beautiful peach once applied to lips, add just a touch more of turmeric. Pour into container. Now you have the three beet-free more neutral lip balms.
  9. Melt down the second round of lip balm base in the double boiler. (1/2 Tbsp beeswax, 1/2 Tbsp shea butter, 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1/2 Tbsp castor oil.) Shut off heat and add the 10-13 drops peppermint oil now if you're using it.
  10. Fluff the beetroot powder a bit so there are no chunks.
  11. Add about 1/2 teaspoon of beetroot powder to the melted balm mix.
  12. Stir well. Add edible glitter if desired.
  13. Pour into container, cool, and seal.
  14. To make a beautiful peach bronze balm, add equal parts beetroot powder and turmeric to the remaining mixture in the double boiler. Stir well.
  15. Pour into container, cool, and seal.
  16. This is how the peach bronze balm looks like on the lips.
  17. If you or someone you know enjoys deep red lips, try adding quite a bit more beetroot powder to the remaining liquid in the double boiler. Remember if it ever starts hardening up while you're working with it, just return it to a simmer.
  18. Pour the red shade into the last container. Cool and seal.
  19. Enjoy your six new beautiful shades. They also make fantastic gifts!
