I don't know when it started. My addiction to lip balm.

For as long as I remember, I've always had to have a tube or two on me. At home, I have one in the kitchen utensil drawer, one in the junk drawer, 3-4 in the office desk drawer and half a dozen in the bathroom.

My purse? Yes, I probably have a combined total of 12 from all my purses and handbags. Addiction, I tell you!

It's no wonder I set out to start making my own because, at this rate, I would need a second job just to support my addiction.

And I'm glad I did because it's incredibly easy to make DIY tinted lip balm with a few key ingredients.

Tint your face with Lip Balm

Tinted lip balm is the new lipstick. Well, not really, but it sure is a great way to add some color to your face and give a fresh look.

I remember a few years ago, I snagged a few (or 10) Burt's Bee's tinted balms and fell in love with them. They are perfect for when lipstick seems too formal or too heavy.

I'm not a big make-up person per se, but I also don't care to frighten my neighbors with my pale au naturel look.

Beautiful hue of Hibiscus

Have you tried my Hibiscus Fruit Punch? So tangy, delicious, and sweet and just perfect for any occasion, any season, any day.

You can't go wrong with hibiscus. It's so versatile and the gorgeous red hue makes it an amazing choice to tint the lip balm.

Not the Red 40 that would normally be seen in conventional products, this is truly food grade. Very safe for your curious toddler sporting your high heels and pearls.

DIY Tinted Lip Balm with Hibiscus

Subtly tinted with natural hibiscus powder, these lip balms are soothing to the lips without any phtalates, dyes, or chemicals.

Instructions

    In a double boiler or small glass bowl (I used a glass measuring cup) over a small pot of boiling water, melt beeswax, shea butter and coconut oil.


    Remove pan from heat but keep the boiler over the hot water to keep the mixture liquid.


    Add enough hibiscus powder to your liking and stir to combine well. (I used a craft stick)


    Fill the lip balm tubes or glass jars. This step must be done quickly as the beeswax will start to harden.


    Let lip balm set at room temperature for a few hours before capping them. Keep away from direct heat.

Heyyy!!! I have been perfecting my all-natural lip balm recipe (my first was way too soft and the next too hard) and I'm getting really close. My lips are kind of oddly colored, so I've decided to add some natural tint to my recipe. I've been doing research and see that a lot of recipes call for "mica powder" which sounds highly suspicious. Hibiscus powder, however, seems like the perfect hue and ingredient to use. I've also read various experiences that mention that the powder is a bit difficult to dissolve. How can I make sure that it does??? Thanks!!!!!

Hi Kat, hibiscus powder is water soluble but since there isn't water in lip balm it's a little trickier to dissolve. You may want to infuse the hibiscus powder into your carrier oil using a disposable teabag. I saw this trick on the Humblebee & Me blog. Here is a link to her recipe and tutorial. I think it will be very helpful for you! Have a great day!

I made a very similar lip balm last year and gave it out for holiday gifts. Except I made the mistake of using the tubes - it was an experiment - very messy and I won't be using the tubes again. I like the screw top you used and will be making more this year. Once you have the supplies, it really is easy to make up a batch, and every woman should have her own stash! Sharing and pinning.

I did that last year as well. And yes, the tubes are very messy. :) Everyone loved it though!
