    What a great idea! I love using coconut oil for a lip scrub, but I’ve never tried making a tinted balm. Definitely trying! 🙂

      Hi Pirah,

      You can try i,t but I’d add very little at first so it doesn’t come out too deep in color. You can always add more if you need to. Let me know how it turns out.

    Hey so if I just want lip balm with no color is it going to be ok if I leave out the lipstick?

    for a more natural product use Hibiscus powder or beet root powder to color. Both can be purchased on Amazon.

    My ten year old daughter and I made this for Christmas gifts. We added about 6 to 8 drops of peppermint oil. It feels great and was so easy to make.

    I’ve looked for essential oils like orange, cherry, etc. I find “flavoring”when I search those items. Can I use them and does it affect the shelf life? Can I use food color rather than lipstick?

      Hi Karee, I’ve never tried it but I’d think you could use food color. Let me know how it turns out. 🙂 Kelli
