We typically make DIY lip balms here on Jenni Raincloud but today I wanted to recreate a cult classic product that I bet you might remember! Instead of a balm, I’m going to share with you an easy DIY lip oil in a roll on bottle that will deliver nostalgia and the memory of youth with every swipe!!
If you’re a child of the 80’s then you’ll most likely remember Lip Potion, Kissing Potion, Kissing Stick and Lip Licking Balm. I used to beg my mom for these unique lip products every time she would drag me grocery shopping! Let me have some Kissing Potion, a Teen Magazine and a Flowers in the Attic paperback and I would’ve been one very happy (and a little weird) kid!
Of course she wouldn’t let me get Kissing Potion or Flowers in the Attic but I think I had every flavor that came in those cute little tins and glass roll ons! The original Lip Potion is by Maybelline but a new company has reformulated it and continues to sell it and their version is actually quite natural and safe so it’s up to you to DIY or Buy Lip Potion Rollerball!
I was excited to find a place online that offers all these products HERE and pleasantly surprised that they are very natural and extremely easy to recreate!
This DIY lip oil has turned out to be a very nourishing lip gloss. Castor oil is added to lip oils and glosses because it gives a good shine. Together with the very nourishing sweet almond oil and vitamin E, it is a must.
The bubblegum flavor is what you use when making candy. While this oil smells like bubblegum, it does not have a sweet taste. I didn’t try it but you could probably add some kind of sugar additive like stevia. I can’t remember if the original roll ons were sweet.

This was a fun and easy recreation of a cult classic! Plus, having a 11 year old going on 16, she had fun helping me and loves the finished product and label! She’s dying for me to finish this post so she can take the DIY Lip Potion to school! I think this would be a really fun craft to do at a tween/teen slumber party too!
Below is the label download. I highly recommend you order them from Sticker You. Their labels are waterproof and restickable. They even hold up in the dish washer!

If you’d rather print them yourself (and can get you printer alignment right, because I can’t!) simply save the label picture and upload to Avery.com. Use THESE labels for the correct size.
