DIY Vegan (ISH) Lip Balm!

Is this going to be fab or a fail? Well, let’s get to it:

This winter my lips have been terrible. Between the cold winds and matte lipstick season my poor lil pout has been somewhat abused. In an effort to try to be savvy I am going to show you guys how to make your own lip balm, sans all of the chemicals that you find in most drugstore products

…plus, it is vegan (ish) so that sounds like some good ol’ hippie fun, right? (The only reason it isn’t completely vegan, is because of the chai powder we’ll be using).

This recipe will feature ingredients that all will be easily obtainable on Amazon, or at your local craft store:

  1. Sweet Almond Oil
  2. Candelilla Wax 
  3. Unrefined Shea Butter
  4. A container with a lid to store the balm.

+ Add ins

Ingredients I used for the balm.

-Chai Latte Lip Balm

  • 1 tsp Shea Butter
  • 1 tsp Wax
  • 0.5 tsp Chai latte mix
  • 0.5 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Sweet almond oil

Heat shea, wax, and oil until a liquid forms. Then add chai powder and cinnamon. Stir until you see the powder dissolve, and pour mixture into container to cool. Last step, use your yummy lip balm and enjoy!

My finished product! Chai lip balm. 

-Orange Hibiscus Lip Balm

  • 1 tsp Shea Butter
  • 1 tsp Wax
  • 8-10 drops Essential Orange Oil (or however much you want)
  • 0.5 tsp Hibiscus Flower Powder
  • 1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil

Complete the recipe just like the first one. Add the orange oil, then the powder. Stir mixture. Hibiscus is kind of tricky to incorporate into lip balm so the finished dried product may look a little funny, but the balm is still good to use.

My personal favorite, the orange/hibiscus balm.
