I recently got my hands on a few Fall-Inspired essential oil blends by Plant Therapy and have been enjoying using them in a few seasonal recipes. My favorite blend in the Fall collection is their Pumpkin Pie essential oil. I just cannot get over how delicious it smells! I kid you not, it smells JUST LIKE homemade pumpkin pie! So far, I have made a decadent pumpkin pie lotion bar which smells good enough to eat and now today’s recipe – pumpkin pie lip balm.
Doesn’t Budge Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm Recipe
This recipe is inspired by Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm though a tad simpler in regards to how many ingredients are in it.
Every year when the seasons turn I find myself needing a lip balm with a bit more staying power. I’m not very consistent when it comes to applying lip products, so the less often I need to reach for a tube of lip balm, the better!
This recipe tends to stay on the lips because, just like the original Burt’s Bees, it uses only beeswax and carrier oils and none of the butters that would make it a softer formula.
If you would prefer a softer formula, I recommend trying this recipe instead.
I added a few drops of pure sea buckthorn oil (from The Ordinary) to give this balm a fall-inspired hue that doesn’t stain the lips. You can omit the sea buckthorn oil if you don’t have it, but it does make the lip balm a lovely and vibrant pumpkin color.
Here’s what you’ll need to make 10 tubes of pumpkin pie lip balm:
• An accurate kitchen scale
• A small Pyrex measuring cup
• A saucepan with 1 inch of water
• 10 standard lip balm tubes
• 25.5g carrier oil (I used avocado oil, but you can sub with olive oil, sweet almond, fractionated coconut oil, etc.)
• 0.25g sea buckthorn oil for color (if you don’t have it, just sub it with more of the carrier oil you used)
• 18g yellow beeswax pastilles
• 0.25g pure Vitamin E oil (I measured this in a separate dish)
• 30 drops Pumpkin Pie essential oil blend
Loving Preparation – Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm Recipe
1. Line up all of your lip balm tubes so that they’re ready for pouring.
2. Place the Pyrex measuring cup on the kitchen scale, set it to grams, and hit tare.
3. Measure out each ingredient into the Pyrex except for the Vitamin E oil and the essential oil.
4. Place the Pyrex with the ingredients in the saucepan with 1 inch of water and bring it to a gentle simmer.
5. Allow the ingredients to melt completely. Stir, then remove from the heat.
7. Carefully pour the lip balm into each lip balm tube.
8. Allow to cool completely before capping and before use.
Apply liberally when you need a protective barrier between your lips and the harsh elements of Fall and Winter.
To Make A Single Tube of Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm
I often prefer to make singular tubes of lip balm since I can’t possibly go through or pass on 10 tubes before they turn rancid.
If you’re in the same boat, I’ve got you covered!
To make one tube of Pumpkin Pie lip balm, you will need:
Follow the instructions above and there you have it! One tube of delicious lip balm.
This lip balm has a delicious pumpkin pie scent and a consistency that stays on the lips for hours at a time.
I hope you enjoy!
