Are you a lip balm addict like me? You will never find me without some on my smackers. My lips are always dry, no matter what time of year it is. I’ve come accustomed to making my own since it is so simple, and this way I know exactly what goes in it. I decided to make some with tint in it to spice things up! Nothing wrong with that- right? This DIY Natural Tinted Lip Balm is DELICIOUS with its Chocolate Peppermint Flavor! It is the perfect natural color, made with only a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your home. Containing no synthetic or hard-to-pronounce chemicals, it’s all natural. The recipe is based off of my DIY Natural Lip Balm recipe, so if you already use/make that- you are in for a real treat! Even better, it beats the $8 price I pay for tube at the store! I can make about a dozen of these babies for less than $5.
Holiday Bonus: Nothing beats these DIY Natural Tinted Lip Balms as holiday gifts or stocking stuffers. Make tons of people happy without breaking the bank or leaving your kitchen! 🙂

Making my own DIY Natural Tinted Lip Balm was incredibly easy! In no time at all, I had many tubes of lip-smacking goodness! I am notorious for not being able to find a tube of lip balm Now, I always have an extra stash on hand and spend a fraction of the cost for them! You can make them any color you choose using a few different natural ingredients.
Here’s why it works:
- Shea butter is a nutrient rich humectant acting to soften and seal in moisture.
- Coconut oil contains fatty acids and antioxidants that help to heal and soothe skin
- Beeswax seals in moisture and coats the lips.
- Vitamin E soothes and moisturizes lips.
- Young Living Essential Oils not only create an amazing flavor for the lip balm, the oils have properties that soothe, moisturize, and promote healthy lips.
- Cocoa Powder contain powerful antioxidants to help nourish your lips.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 tablespoon unrefined shea butter (My favorite shea butter to use is from Better Shea Butter and can be found HERE)
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoon beeswax
- 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil (Make sure the one you use can be safely ingested. You can get a bottle or empty capsules to get the amount needed.)
- 1/2 teaspoon organic cocoa powder
- 8 drops of Young Living Essential Oils of your choice (Vitality line). I used peppermint, but other great choices include Thieves, lemon, citrus fresh, and lavender. I ONLY use these because they are 100% pure, steam distilled or cold-pressed, and are harvested sustainably.
- 9-12 lip balm tubes or containers
- eye dropper
Other options for color: For a red color, use Beet Root Powder.
Here’s what you do:
- In a double boiler, melt the shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax until it is liquefied. Remove from the heat once liquefied.
- Add the vitamin E oil. Add 8 drops of Young Living Essential Oils of your choice. Stir to incorporate.
- Pour into the containers using an eyedropper and allow to cool.
I like to store my new lip balms in the refrigerator. It is certainly not necessary but it does keep them hardened and I know they will last until I am ready to use them. Enjoy your smooth, moisturized smackers!
