Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm + Edible Lip Scrub

Pumpkin Pie Lip Balm + Edible Lip Scrub | Henry HappenedChapped lips are the worst! I think I reapply lip balm 50 times a day! So here’s a recipe to keep your lips soft and kissable all season long. Because who doesn’t love the taste of pumpkin pie? It’s my favorite dessert, hands down. (Then again I admit to being a nut for all things pumpkin spice.) Last year I made pumpkin spice lip gloss, and it became one of my favorite parts of the season. To get ready for chapped lip season, this year we switched up the recipe and added my new favorite ingredient (hint, it’s honey!). Oh, and we also tried out an edible lip scrub. Feel free to skip the pie and just eat the lip scrub!

This is the first time I’ve used honey in a lip balm recipe, and it’s divine. It smells heavenly, keeps the texture smooth and soft and, of course, tastes pretty good too.

    On the lip balm in the picture you have coconut oil on the blue spoon but coconut oil is not listed in the ingredients. Can you give any more details?

    Oh! My mom loves it. I will never buy lip balm from the store EVER again. You could practically eat the stuff!

    I really don’t understand why people aren’t specific in their recipes. Dark or light brown sugar? Did you melt the coconut oil first or use it solid? Just spent 15 minutes making this with solid coconut oil because that’s what’s in the photo, only to find out that it turned into a creamy mess. Now I have to make it all again with melted oil. I really don’t see why people don’t put it in their recipe. It’s like not specifying that you need to mix the dry ingredients together then add the wet. It ruins the entire thing,

      Hi Nikki – sorry for your frustration! You can use light or dark brown sugar – either will work. And no, I didn’t melt the coconut oil first before combining it with the other ingredients. Even when solid the coconut oil has a soft enough consistency that you can easily mix everything together. But if it was easier to melt it first, that’s fine too!

    Question: how well does this keep??? I understand that honey is a natural preservative, but I’m unsure about sugar (it can go either way- bacteria breeding or preserving, depending on what you read…). I’m making my own lip scrubs and plan on sending them as gifts; hate for my friends to get sick!
