DIY Sugar Cookie Lip Balm….

DIY Sugar Cookie Lip BalmMerry Christmas everyone!  Santa is coming and just maybe he’s sick of eating cookies everyone leaves him…..  and just maybe he’d be excited about getting DIY SUGAR COOKIE LIP BALM?!  Ha, probably not, but how fun is a sugar cookie lip balm?!  It’s an easy recipe that is super nourishing, not to mention yummy for your lips!

This DIY lip balm is a bit different from the usual lip balms we make. This time we are infusing tea bags into the grapeseed oil! You might recall we did this with the DIY Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm. This is a super easy process but flavors up the oil quite a bit. Basically, instead of steeping a tea bag in water, you’re steeping it in oil but much slower and for a longer amount of time. I also added vanilla extract and sugar to up the scent and flavor. You don’t have to add them but they do kick up the novelty of this DIY lip balm quite a bit! 

If you don’t have grapeseed oil, you can use any other scentless oil. Sweet almond oil, refined coconut oil, apricot seed oil, safflower oil and MCT oil (fractionated coconut oil) are all great alternatives. 

Beeswax is an absolute must since it is what thickens the oil into a solid form. Beeswax is actually a very beneficial ingredient in the DIY beauty world! Beeswax also creates a barrier over the lips which helps protect and moisturize!

    1. Elizabeth-This recipe requires no water. Only water I used is to make the double boiler. I add water to a medium sized pot, then place a glass bowl in it. This helps the oils to not overheat. I actually steep the tea bags in the grapeseed oil. Thanks!

  1. Hi Jenni! I followed the link to this post from Pinterest. This is a great post and thanks for sharing. My question is, since the beezwax comes in pellets, do I use just a standard measuring spoon or can you tell me about how many pellets is a tablespoon? Thanks!

  2. Looks wonderful! I was wondering if the grapeseed oil could be replaced with something else? I was also curious why you chose grapeseed oil. Thanks!

  3. Hi Jenni,
    I have tried a few lip balm recipes, but I love this one. I did a berry lip balm using of course berry tea. I also used evaporated sugar cane, but had a hard time getting it to dissolve. Any suggestions, or do I just stick with “regular” white sugar?
    Absolutely LOVE your site and recipes by the way!!

      1. Could one use a a sugar substitute? We make lip balms that we sell….granted it would be a minute amount, but I try not to add sugar to thing people might ingest incase one were to have a diabetic issue. Thanks!!

        1. (I also wanted to let you know that we aren’t steeling your recipe, we have a base recipe that we use, I am just trying to get ideas for flavorings.)
