DIY flavored lip balm – a recipe and video tutorial for an all-natural homemade lip balm that is tinted with freeze dried fruit.
This lip balm is the ultimate goal for those of you who want to have something all-natural, without toxins and preservatives that might cause issues.
It uses freeze dried strawberries and raspberries to give it both a pretty pink color and a light fruit flavor!
The lip balm itself is simply amazing but with the addition of the fruit it is downright addicting.
It tastes like berry, gives a nice pinkish color to your lips, and is pretty easy to make!

Lip Balm Recipe
Makes 1 tube
- 1 tsp/0.1 oz Beeswax
- 0.1 oz Shea Butter
- 0.1 oz Cocoa Butter
- 1 tsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tsp Olive Oil
- 1/8 cup Freeze Dried Raspberries and Strawberries, ground into a powder
- 1 Lip Balm Tube
- Weigh and/or measure the ingredients and put them in a double boiler or a glass jar. If using a glass jar, set it in a pot filled 1/4 full with water.
- Turn the heat on and melt the ingredients.
- Quickly strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the seeds and then immediately into the lip balm tube. The mixture will start to harden almost immediately so if for some reason this has happened you before you get it into the tube, simply heat until liquid again.
- Let solidify completely.
Note: This recipe is for 1 lip balm. You can easily multiply it to make more – these make fantastic gifts for friends and family.
