Raspberry Lemonade Lip Balm
I don't know where you're reading from, but here in the great state of Maine, we've had a long, incredibly snowy winter. I'm so ready for spring and summer!
One of my favorite summer treats is raspberry lemonade, and this ultra-nourishing raspberry lemonade lip balm will keep your lips protected from harsh external reality. The flavor gives you a little hint of summer that might remind you that spring is coming, eventually!
This recipe is really easy to make, but thanks to the beautiful ingredients, it is also very pretty and has a delicious fragrance. The freeze-dried raspberries settle in the tube giving this homemade lip balm a superb shaded appearance.
This DIY lip balm is so cute, in fact, that it would make a wonderful gift! I love offering homemade natural beauty products to my friends and family. It's a gift so special and so much nicer than the chemical-laden products you find in most stores.
Coconut oil gives this DIY raspberry limon lip balm an ultra-smooth and hydrating quality. It is perfect for keeping your lips soft during the cold months, but also wonderful for keeping your kiss nice and soft all year round.
Another way to keep your lips soft is to use a lip scrub. You can easily make your own lip exfoliant using a few simple ingredients that you probably have on hand. Do not miss our article of exfoliating lip scrub to learn how!

Mash about 1/3 cup of freeze-dried raspberries into a fine powder. They will add a fantastic flavor with a nice shade to the lip balm. I used a fine mesh colander to remove the seeds to keep a smooth texture.
Use a double boiler process to melt the beeswax and coconut oil. Constant agitation will help speed up the merger process.
Remove from heat and add essential oil and powdered raspberries. Have the tubes upright with the caps removed and ready to fill as soon as everything is mixed.
Fill the medicine dropper from the bowl and fill one tube at a time, but carefully. The raspberry powder will settle a little at the bottom of the bowl (and tubes), make sure that when you suck the liquid in the dropper, you also collect some of the raspberry. Continue to fill each tube until the mixture is used. You will notice that the powder settles on the bottom of the tubes, if you prefer, you can quickly cap each tube after filling and turn it over and continue to rotate to try to keep a uniform coloring. I loved the shadow look of this process and left it with pleasure!
* Using 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of beeswax with powdered raspberries and essential oil, this recipe made exactly 5 tubes of 5 ml / 1 teaspoon each. Adding a little more beeswax makes for a bigger batch. I used a dropper to fill each tube quickly and without damage.
