Nourish your lips with Homemade Toasted Pumpkin Chapstick! Made with natural ingredients and pumpkin seed oil, it’s the ultimate Fall beauty treat!
Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the abundance of gorgeous earth colors, but I hate how the chill in the air does a number on my skin and especially on my lips.
My lips get so dry and chapped in cold weather; it can be somewhat uncomfortable and even painful. So to keep them soft and well-nourished, I always have a tube of chapsticks within reach. Just a dab or two of the lip balm and I can pucker up with ease. 🙂
If you’re like me and can’t live without your favorite lip balm, you might want to make your own at home. They’re so quick to put together, you can have a batch to keep or to give out in minutes!
All you need for your very own homemade natural lip balms are simple ingredients you can find at most health food or major grocery stores.
- coconut, almond or grapeseed oil
- cocoa or shea butter
- beeswax or soy wax
- choice of essential oils
This Homemade Toasted Pumpkin Chapstick is made all natural with coconut oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax with pumpkin seed oil, and cinnamon bark and clove essential oils for a delicious Autumn flavor. There are no added fragrance, menthol or parabens that may cause drying out.
