    PUMPKIN LIP BALM

    I was just wondering if any of you know how to make Pumpkin Lip Balm? Or if you know where to find Pumpkin Essential Oil? I have a basic lip balm recipe but I just need pumpkin flavoring/scent. Please help me out if you know about it?


    Thanks a bunch!

    :D

    You won't find a pumpkin essential oil that is pure, but I'm sure that you could find a scent or flavoring somewhere. Check the baking aisle at a large supermarket, and they may have it with the flavorings for cakes and pastries.

    Also, I'm sure that you could use the pumpkin puree, but the lip balm would probably either have a short shelf life or need to be refrigerated. It may be better for a body butter.

    This sounds so yummy! Tell us if it works out!

    If you make it, let me know. I'd buy a tube of pumpkin lip balm.

    i don't think i'll try the pumpkin puree...i'd like my lip balm to last lol.
    do you think that Michael's would have some pumpkin flavorings maybe? i mean only if i can't find it in a supermarket.
    i love love love pumpkin and ever since i found Sephora had a shampoo, conditioner and body wash all in one thing that was pumpkin scented...OMG i wanted to make a lip balm.

    i can't remember where i got it. i searched for a simple lip balm recipe a few years ago and finally came up with this one because it seemed the easiest. here it is for ya:


    2 tbsp. petrolleum jelly
    1 tsp. beeswax
    10 drops of essential oil

    It says to melt the jelly & beeswax and then add the essential oil. Very easy. And then just add it to your little tins or whatever you want to put the lip balm in.

    If you already have beeswax (usually the most difficult lip balm making supply to find), I suggest skipping the petroleum jelly!!! Instead, use any kind of cooking oil (olive, etc.) and if you have coconut oil (can also be found in the cooking section of your local store), some of that.

    Use 1/3 beeswax, 1/3 olive (or whatever other liquid oil), 1/3 coconut.

    If you can't find the coconut, use roughly 1/2 and 1/2 (although you might want a bit more liquid oil to make it softer).

    This is a natural lip balm that can be absorbed by your lips. Petroleum just makes a seal over your skin, but doesn't actually penetrate your dry skin. Also, do you really want to smear a product that is a by-product of crude oil on your lips??

    Hope that helps!
