DIY Pumpkin Spice Homemade Lip Gloss

Let the pumpkin spice madness begin! It feels like the first day of September is now the beginning of fall and I, for one, can’t wait. With cozy scarves and warm drinks, this is my favorite time of year. I have been meaning to make my own lip gloss forever and when I finally got around to it the other day I couldn’t resist adding some pumpkin spice flavor!

You’ll need:

  • 2 tablespoons petroleum jelly
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin spice mix
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • small piece of lipstick (optional)
  • lip gloss container – you can get these a health food store or a craft store

Melt the petroleum jelly and lipstick (if using) in a microwave safe container. When it is completely liquified add the spice mix and mix thoroughly. Pour into lip gloss container and refrigerate for 20 minutes to set. Lip gloss will keep indefinitely if kept in container with lid.

If pumpkin spice isn’t your thing, you can add an essential oil like peppermint instead.

For an all natural alternative, you can make a super moisturizing lip balm with just a few simple ingredients.

Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm

You’ll need:

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp grated cocoa butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
  • small pinch of cinnamon
  • lip gloss container – you can get these a health food store or a craft store

Melt the coconut oil in a small microwave safe container, microwaving for short 15 second intervals until completely melted. (You also do this in a small sauce pan in you prefer.) Add the cocoa butter and stir until melted. Microwave again if needed. Add the spices and vitamin E oil (preservative) and stir well. Transfer to a small container and refrigerate until solid. Do not put it in a tube or keep it in your pocket, as it will easily melt and leak.

Edit: To make the lip balm firmer, add a tablespoon of beeswax. That will help keep it from melting so easily.

    Oh and I am making 14 small tubs of balm, and times the recipe by 7 and had waaay too much. I will only make 2-3 times the recipe next time!

    I tried the pumpkin pie lip balm and it didn’t come out well. It is too mushy. I am going to retry with less oil, and perhaps some beeswax like a PP suggested. I will also add more pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon because I really cannot smell it. It’s a great idea and I am using these for Christmas presents!

    This is such a great idea! I’m wondering if using a little beeswax in the all natural version would help to firm it up some.

    Pumpkin Spice is the most amazing scent ever,…and I am soooo in love with it this season. From candles, to body scrubs, and now lip gloss! Amazing! Thanks so much for sharing.

    Ah! I love this! I’m completely obsessed with my pumpkin spice candle and would carry it with me everywhere if I could. So the thought of putting it {well not the candle, but the scent} right under my nose so I can smell it all the time makes me very happy! Awesome idea! I would be thrilled if you shared this at my Throwback Thursday party. I hope to see you there! And thanks for sharing :)

    My daughter’s addicted to pumpkin spice lattes during the fall – so I’d love to make this for her! Just a clarification, please? For the pumpkin spice lip gloss you mention using “1/4 tsp. pumpkin spice mix” and for the lip balm you mention “1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice”. Same thing, or different?

    I’ve been waiting for you to post this since you mentioned it last week! I had no idea you could put spices into lip gloss like that–this is so much more practical than buying those expensive lip gloss flavorings. And yes, pumpkin spice DOES make everything better! :)
