DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm + Bonus Recipe

DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip BalmToday it’s cloudy….. It hasn’t been cloudy in over a month, much less rained.  It’s mid September and we are still in the 90’s, so anything that resembles the coziness of fall inspires me! I am not above pumpkin spice EVERYTHING. So that being said, I’ve made a DIY pumpkin pie lip balm!

I decided to experiment with DIY lip balms today and ventured outside my usual essential oil route and “infused” my oils instead!  This turned out to be really simple using tea bags! 

I used grapeseed oil as my base because it is odorless. You could use sweet almond oil, refined coconut oil, safflower oil or apricot seed oil instead. Beeswax is a must. It is what solidifies the oil into a balm. It also helps moisturize lips and acts as a barrier to protect skin!

I found pumpkin spice tea at Target. Cinnamon and sugar are optional but they make this DIY lip balm extra fun!

My first batch I used a Chai tea bag, a packet of Sweet Leaf (safe artificial sweetener), and liberally shook cinnamon in the mix.  The sugar flavor didn’t come through, the Chai was strong for me (I can’t make it all the way through a Starbucks Chai Latte though), and the cinnamon made my lips feel funny (plumped them up, stay tuned for lip plumper post, ha!).  

Tailor this recipe to your own taste!  It was fun and easy and so perfect for the season!

And while I’m at it-How about a bonus DIY lip balm recipe that smells like fall to me?!

    1. Oh wow, I’m so glad you commented-I wrote this post a while back and have never noticed that I didn’t mention a double boiler! That’s how I did mine, just didn’t word my recipe right!! Thanks for catching that! Sorry your recipe didn’t work-my fault!

  1. Sounds like you had a reaction to the cinnamon. A lot of people, including myself, are allergic. It will make your lips tingle and eventually affect your breathing. Nutmeg is the best I can do for that spice flav. Think, ”HITCH” Will Smith when he ate the nuts. Lol

  2. What fun! I made these today, and I keep wanting to lick my lips! They’re just sweet enough – which is to say- only a hint of sweetness – and they smell delicious. They taste like pumpkin spice, too, definitely, though I think next time I make them, I might use 3 teabags. My daughters are all pumpkin spice mad, so I’ll pass them out tomorrow when everyone’s here for family dinner. And for me, I’m looking forward to the Williams Sonoma lip balm–that looks heavenly. Thanks, Jenni!
