Homemade Lip Balm- Beets Tinted

There was an exhibition in my niece’s school and she was assigned to make home made beauty products. We both made bath soap, body scrub, toothpaste, House Cleaner, and a Lip balm. Today, I am sharing the recipe of the lip balm.

This is the everyday essential part of most of us. Adding beets give a nice dark pink tint.

Here is the recipe.

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon beeswax
  • 1/2 teaspoon beets juice or beetroot powder (available in whole foods)
  • .14oz vegetable glycerin or honey (Optional)
  • 2-4 drops of peppermint essential oil (Optional)
  1. Melt the coconut oil, beeswax in a glass jar sitting in a small pot of simmering water and stir gently until melted.
  2. When melted, carefully stir in beets juice or powder, glycerin/honey and essential oils, if using.
  3. Once colors/oil are mixed in,  transfer to tins, small box or lip chap containers.
  4. Let cool.Use as you would lip balm.
