What do you need to make homemade lip oil?
This homemade lip oil only requires a few natural ingredients. The nourishing lip oil base is liquid coconut oil. This lip oil was chosen for its ability to repair dry, chapped lips.
As Healthline says, “In alternative medicine, coconut oil is a mainstay in burn treatment. This is due to its moisture, as well as its analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. These same effects can translate to benefits for chapped, cracked lips.”
Furthermore, coconut oil is an excellent emollient that works to moisturize and protect lips from the elements.
An alternative lip oil base is sweet almond oil. It is a little bit thicker than coconut oil so you may like it better if you need intense hydration and protection. It can be on the stickier side though so coconut oil is great when you want a light oil.
Essential Oils For Lip Oil
I suggest using Young Living essential oils for this DIY recipe because they are pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. The Young Living Vitality line of essential oils is best because it is made to be safe to ingest. If you need Young Living essential oils, I am a distributor so you can order them through my website here. If you choose to a different brand, just be sure they are high quality, pure oils.
Peppermint oil was chosen for this lip oil because it has a fresh scent and provides a slightly cooling sensation which could almost be described as tingly.
Orange essential oil is naturally anti-bacterial and has anti-inflammatory properties. It is great for soothing lips and has a wonderful scent.
When making your own lip oil, you may substitute your favorite essential oils but make sure they are a mild, healing oil natural oils like rose essential oil and not something like oregano essential oil which is too strong for such sensitive skin.
Essential oils are extremely potent. For this reason, it is important to dilute them in carrier oil before application and follow safety guidelines. The carrier oil used in this homemade lip oil recipe is coconut oil but you could substitute olive oil or jojoba oil if you prefer. Vitamin E oil can also be used as an additive if lips are very dry and in need of deeper hydration and repair. These liquid carrier oils allow for a smooth flowing gloss that can be stored in lip oil bottles and rolled on for easy application.
If you need an essential oil roller bottle for this vegan clear lip oil recipe you can find them at craft stores or on amazon.
If you were making a homemade lip balm recipes instead you would use a more solid carrier oil (like shea butter or cocoa butter). These would be warmed for mixing with the essential oils and then allowed to solidify at room temperature once they were poured into lip balm tubes.
How To Make Lip Oil:
Start by taking the lid and roller off of your bottle. For this Moisturizing Essential Oil Flavored Lip Oil you will want to add 5 drops of your uplifting Orange Essential Oil and 5 drops of your Peppermint Essential Oil. (*I only use Young Living Essential Oils and recommend this brand especially if there is a chance of ingesting your oils. This company has very high standards and only uses the best plants and distillation methods to get their pure essential oils.)
Once you have added your drops of essential oil to the roller bottle, use a small funnel to fill the rest of the bottle up with your liquid coconut oil. (Alternatively, you can use sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil or even avocado oil if you prefer. Those are all great for your skin and safe to put on your lips).
Pop the roller on your bottle, shake, and your essential oil roller bottle lip oil is ready to be applied! This peppermint flavored lip oil feels great on your lips and helps heal chapped lips while protecting them from further cracking.
