DIY Lip Balm Pouches Just In Time For Valentine’s Day


We love our essential oils, and one of our favorite goodies to make with our oils is DIY lip balm. Our lips are so dry in the winter, plus we love when we can put pure ingredients on our lips. Valentine’s Day is coming up, and for those that want kissable lips, or want to give a gift of kissable lips, we recommend DIY essential oil lip balm.

Read our DIY lip balm tutorial for the ingredients and instructions. To jazz it up a bit for gift giving, make a cute holder for it – a DIY lip balm pouch. It’s almost like a lip balm sleeping bag. It’s a cute DIY that can be made into all shapes and sizes. We made heart-shaped pockets to hold gift cards for teachers. You can also make DIY felt pouches to hold tissues, treats, and even larger pockets for photos and sweet notes.

This DIY project is incredibly easy. Here’s how we did it.



Step 1: Cut felt (we bought a pretty library of felt from Target, and it’s thicker than traditional felt, which worked well) into a rectangle larger than the width of the lip balm tube.


Step 2: Once you have the pieces cut, thread a needle (don’t forget to tie a knot on the end), along the edges of two rectangles that are lined up. We do not have any sewing skills whatsoever, and we did it! Just go in and out of the felt, which will create a cross stitch pattern. Leave the top of the rectangle open so you have an opening for the lip balm.




Hope you find a way, even if it’s a wave or hug, to spread the love on Valentine’s Day!


Pucker Up: DIY Lip Balm with Essential Oils Just in Time for Valentine’s Day

We have a drawer full of essential oils. The more we learn about the uses of the oils, the more we love. The more we love, the more we want to make. The more we make, the more we want to share.

This post was inspired by Gabriella’s (Jessica’s daughter) lip-making kit she got for Christmas (if a 6-year-old can make DIY lip balm with the help of a kit, we could surely make it, too), as well as Valentine’s Day. We made DIY lip balms with essential oils that not only smell amazing, but feel soft and smooth on lips too! These make awesome gifts for girlfriends and loved ones. It was so easy, and so fun.


DIY Lip Balm with Essential Oils
makes 6 lip balm tubes



Step 1: Add 2 inches of water to a saucepan on the stove. Put on high for boiling water.

Step 2: Add shea butter, beeswax pellets and coconut butter to a glass measuring cup.


Step 3: Place the glass measuring cup in the pan on the stove, and occasionally stir the mixture with a wood popsicle stick until all pellets are melted. Once they are melted, remove the cup from the stove, wait about 30 seconds, then add the essential oils. The combinations we chose are:
Peppermint: 30 drops
Peppermint and Lavender: 15 drops Peppermint and 10 drops Lavender
Peppermint and Wild Orange: 15 drops of each
Lemon and Wild Orange: 15 drops of each

Step 4: Stir the essentials oils in the oil. Quickly pour into the lip balm tubes before it hardens.

Step 5: Print labels. We made our labels for our lip balms using Avery labels. Free PDF file here. The Avery label you need to purchase is 5195. There are 60 labels per sheet.

Step 6: Once the lip balm is set (about 3 hours), stick the labels on.



Share the lip balm love, and give to friends! Baci, Baci (kisses, kisses).
