Tinted Lip Balm – Easy, Organic 3 Ingredient Lip Stain

3 organic ingredients for a natural lip stain that’s naturally beautifying with protective oils, vitamins, and antioxidants. This easy DIY is quick and simple, perfect to gift this holiday season. All the moisture, shine and blush minus the toxic chemicals, artifical colors and scents.

My lip balm videos are some of my most popular ones.  I’ve made the classic version, a holiday pumpkin spice and hot cocoa variety as well as a vegan one.  Today, I’m bringing you another simple recipe but one with a naturally rosy blush tint.  I’m often asked if petroleum jelly can be used instead of beeswax or candelila wax.  I thought it was important enough to answer again here.  I personally don’t use or like vaseline as it’s a by-product of oil refining.  It’s neither sustainable or eco-friendly so I try to use something like an unpetroleum multi-purpose jelly.

The beeswax or candelila wax work in conjunction with the coconut oil for a creamy consistency that is protective and moisturizing with the beet powder lending color along with vitamin c and antioxidants.  The helichrysum essential oil is optional but I’m very infatuated with it at the moment.  Everything is energy and helichrysum happens to vibrate at one of the highest frequencies.  I’ve been obsessed with not only diffusing it, but incorporating it into my husband’s noni salve, and incorporating a few precious drops into my facial oil blend.  So much of what we apply to our skin is then absorbed into our system.  It’s the reason I started cleaning up my beauty routine on both the inside and out.  It’s another reason I don’t use petroleum jelly, especially on my lips.  We inadvertently swallow a lot of our lip products so with the one I’m sharing today, you can not only feel good about using it, you can rest assured its quality.

No chemicals, no funky or scary ingredients, no artificial colors, scents or preservatives.

Serves: .30 oz
Ingredients
  • 1 ts organic beeswax
  • 1 ts organic beeswax
  • 2 ts organic unrefined coconut oil
  • 2 ts organic unrefined coconut oil
  • ½ ts to 1 ts very fine beet powder
  • ½ ts to 1 ts very fine beet powder
  • Optional: 1 drop of helichrysum essential oil
Instructions
  1. Melt the beeswax and stir it together with the coconut oil. You can re-melt both together if it begins to solidify too quickly. A microwave or stovetop both work here.
  2. Vigorously stir in the beet root powder and any desired essential oil/s. Make sure it is very finely milled. I create a fine dust myself with dried beets but you can also use store-bought beet powder.
  3. Right before pouring, strain through a cheese cloth or very fine strainer.
  4. This makes 1 lip gloss pot of balm or fills 1-2 lip balm tubes.
