#PumpkinSpiceEverything Fever has hit but to be honest I would rather this Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm hit my lips. It’s all natural, leaves my lips smooth and glossy and has a cool tingling (slightly plumping) effect that I am addicted to….best yet? Almost zero calories. Beat that Starbucks.
Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm Ingredients
This list contains affiliate links
- 3 tsp beeswax pastilles
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp cocoa butter-I eyed a chunk that fit just about right in the tsp
- 2 tsp pumpkin seed oil
- 4 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil (click here to get a Young Living Discount)
- 2 drops Clove Essential Oil
- 2 drops Nutmeg Essential Oil
- 6 lip balm tubes
- Pippette (glass or long plastic-I personally prefer the plastic because the glass is hard to clean but the glass is safest)
Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm Directions
If you have NEVER made lip balm before please read through a few lip balm tutorials to become familiar with the process.
Melt the following in a double boiler. For this project I made a double boiler effect by setting a Pyrex measuring cup in a saucepan filled with a few inches of slowly boiling water.
- coconut oil
- cocoa butter
- pumpkin seed oil
Stir occasionally. Once completely melted remove from heat. Add the following:
- cinnamon oil
- nutmeg oil
- clove oil
Using pipette quickly fill the tubes (this should make 6 full tubes for you).
Let cool completely (at least 2 hours)
Decorate with washi tape or leave plain (up to you). Note: Cinnamon and Clove essential oils are considered “hot”. Please try these mild amounts and test on your own before deciding to add more.

This recipe sounds awesome! Do you have any other fall lip balm combos to share? I don’t have clove yet and am wondering if not including would still make it a goodie…?
Also, have you ever tried thieves in lip balm?
Thieves would be great. I don’t have any other “fall” combos up but the peppermint one is awesome!

Hi! This recipe sounds amazing and my kiddos are begging me to make it. I just had a question, I have every single ingredient except for the cocoa butter….I only have Shea butter, which is what I usually use to make my chopsticks. Could I possibly use that instead, or does the cocoa butter make a huge difference in the flavor? Thanks in advance!
substitute for pumpkin seed oil?
There really isn’t one if you want that dark color or pumpkin flavor.
Do you have to put it in the lip balm tubes? Or can you substitute and put it in the little tins?
You can do tins.
Hi. I just made this lip balm. It looks green in the tubes and also leaves a green tinty color on my lips… is that normal? The lip balm you show in pics looks more brown in color !
Mine are always brown. Could it be the carrier you are using?
