Pumpkin Spice Latte Lip Balm Recipe

How to make a pumpkin spice latte lip balm recipe.  This tastes just like your favorite drink but with no calories!

How many pumpkin spice lattes have you had this year?  Be honest; I won't tell anyone.

What if you could get all the taste of a PSL without adding extra calories or spending much money?  With this pumpkin spice latte lip balm recipe, you get all the smell and taste of a PSL at any time without running to the coffee shop or drinking extra calories.  

This pumpkin spice latte lip balm recipe is natural and made with essential oils for the scent.  It helps heal and protect the lips.

When I was creating this recipe, I had two dilemmas to overcome.  The first one was how to get a true coffee flavor without using actual coffee grounds because they are messy or brewed coffee because then I would need a preservative.

The second was how to get the spices mixed in with the lip balm because they tend to get clumpy.  

I decided to use coffee infused oil and essential oils.

COFFEE INFUSED ALMOND OIL


To make the coffee infused oil, simply place some finely ground coffee in a glass jar and cover with a carrier oil.  I used sweet almond oil, but any liquid carrier oil would work.  Let it sit for at least two weeks before straining it.  

You can also use a warm infusion by placing a towel on the bottom of a slow cooker.  Place the jar with the coffee and oil on top of the towel.  Add water to the slow cooker until it is over the beans and oil but below the top of the jar.  Turn the slow cooker on low and let cook uncovered for 4-6 hours.  Strain the oil.

Coffee infused oil can be used in several recipes, so store any leftover oil to use later.

SHEA BUTTER


Shea butter is my favorite natural butter to use in lip balm (and in most DIY bath and body recipes really).  It's naturally anti-inflammatory and is high in vitamins A and E and fatty acids to moisturize your lips.

Since it's a solid at room temperature, it helps harden this recipe naturally.

BEESWAX


Beeswax is what hardens this pumpkin spice latte lip balm recipe.  Beeswax forms a barrier on top of the skin.  This helps trap the oil and shea butter against the lips so you can get the moisturizing benefits long after you use this.

Beeswax is also naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. If your lips are chapped, this can help you get natural relief.

ESSENTIAL OILS


When I made this pumpkin spice latte lip balm for the first time, there wasn't a pumpkin spice essential oil blend.  I asked the owner of Crafty Bubbles to make me one, and he did.  It's amazing!  It's only available from their catalog for now.
You can also make your own pumpkin spice blend with:


CONTAINERS



I used metal slide top lip balm containers.  I really like them because they are cute and easy to use.


You can also use lip balm tubes or lip balm pots.
