Beginning of Fall- Cinnamon Spice Lip Balm

You know what’s better than the taste of pumpkin-spice-everything?

The smell of pumpkin-spice everything.

While I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin spice lattes (please don’t hit me!), I do share the love of Fall-flavored things, like pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cookies, and pumpkin beers. Something about those flavors that only come from ground spices like cinnamon and clove.

Who could resist the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg spices swirled together with warm pumpkin that lets us know that Fall has arrived?

Well, PSL lovers, listen up because I found a new way to incorporate the pumpkin-y spicy flavor into your life: lip balm.

I’ve been a very DIY mood lately; it’s been super motivating! So I thought ‘what can I make that I know I’d use all the time?’

Well since I am a proud lip balm addict, I took to Pinterest in search of a DIY lip balm recipe. But with Fall sweeping in fast, I realized that I needed a pumpkin spice lip balm in my life.

What you need:

10 Lip Balm Tubes

1 tbsp Beewax

2 tbsp Coconut Oil

8 drops Cinnamon and Clove Essential Oils

1/8 tsp Pumpkin Spice Mix

Using a double boiler, heat the beeswax and coconut oil on the stove until it is completely melted.

Quickly squirt your Essential Oils and drop your Pumpkin Spice Mix in there and mix, mix, mix.

Get your tubes ready and, using a funnel, slowly pour in your waxy mixture.

Set aside and let cool until they harden.

Now comes the fun part- with your tube blank and white, you’re free to create a cool, personalized label. I don’t have any labels at the moment, but I still have an awesome time making these! They are super easy and rewarding to make!
