4 Springtime Lip Balm Creations for Gift Baskets

Spring brings blooming flowers, warm afternoons, and cheerful celebrations. It’s also the perfect time to infuse the season’s joy into your passion for natural skincare with homemade springtime lip balm creations for gift baskets. These little tubes of delight are thoughtful additions to any present and a fun, crafts project that celebrates the essence of spring. 

Benefits of Handmade Lip Balms

Handmade lip balms offer the goodness of natural elements without harsh chemicals, providing nourishment and protection for your lips. Moreover, the ability to customize and personalize these lip balms adds a special touch, making them ideal for gifting during the springtime.

Essential Ingredients for Spring-Inspired Lip Balms

Essential oils with floral notes, light natural sweeteners like honey or agave, and moisturizing bases such as shea butter and coconut oil are perfect choices for lip balms inspired by the rejuvenating spirit of spring. These ingredients evoke the essence of spring and offer excellent benefits for lip care.

DIY Lip Balm Recipes

Let’s embark on a creative journey with step-by-step instructions for crafting spring-inspired lip balm flavors. The possibilities are endless, from delicate floral blends to vibrant fruity infusions.

Honey and Lavender Bliss

Creating a homemade lip balm that combines the nurturing properties of honey and the calming aroma of lavender can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.


  • One tablespoon of coconut oil
  • A half teaspoon of raw honey
  • Five to six drops of lavender essential oil
  • Three drops of Lavender Flavoring
  • Empty lip balm tubes or small jars
  • A double boiler or a heat-safe bowl and saucepan
  • A small whisk or spoon


  1. Melting the Coconut Oil: Place the coconut oil in your double boiler or a heat-safe bowl. Fill a saucepan with a couple of inches of water and place your heat-safe bowl in the pan if you don’t have a double boiler. Ensure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl. Heat on low until the coconut oil melts.
  1. Adding the Honey: Mix in the raw honey. Stir gently until everything fully combines. The oil’s warmth will dissolve the honey, creating a smooth mixture.
  1. Adding the Lavender Essential Oil and Flavoring: Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool slightly. Then, add your lavender essential oil and flavoring. Stir gently to distribute the ingredients evenly throughout the mixture.
  1. Filling the Containers: Pour the mixture into your empty lip balm tubes or jars. Fill each container almost to the top, leaving a little space to allow the balm to contract as it cools.
  1. Letting the Lip Balm Set: Allow the lip balm to cool and solidify. This step could take a couple of hours at room temperature, or you could expedite the process by placing your mixture into the refrigerator.

Floral Delight

Experience the enchanting beauty of a blossoming spring garden in every application with a luxurious lip balm that blends a variety of floral essential oils.


  • Two tablespoons of shea butter
  • Five drops each of rose, geranium, and ylang-ylang essential oils
  • Four drops of Rose Flavoring
  • A double boiler or heat-safe bowl and saucepan
  • A small whisk or spoon
  • Empty lip balm tubes or small jars


  1. Melting the Shea Butter: Place it in your double boiler or heat-safe bowl and gently melt it over low heat. 
  2. Adding the Essential Oils and Flavoring: After melting the shea butter and allowing it to cool slightly, stir in the rose, geranium, and ylang-ylang essential oils. Also, stir in the Rose Flavoring. Mix well, ensuring you evenly distribute the oils throughout the mixture.
  3. Filling the Containers: Pour the mixture into your empty lip balm tubes or jars, leaving some space at the top to allow for contraction as the balm solidifies.
  4. Letting the Lip Balm Set: Let the lip balm cool and harden. At room temperature, this step could take a few hours, but you can speed up the process by placing the containers in the refrigerator.

Sweet Orange

Sweet Orange Lip Balm is another springtime lip balm creation for gift baskets because it’s vibrant, fruity, and fresh. Here’s what to do:


  • Two tablespoons of shea butter
  • One tablespoon of honey
  • Five to seven drops of sweet orange essential oil
  • Four drops of Orange Flavoring
  • A pinch of mica powder (optional, for color)


  1. Melt the Shea Butter: Over low heat, melt the shea butter. Do not overheat, as it can lose some of its nourishing properties.
  2. Add the Honey: Once the shea butter melts, remove it from the heat and stir in the honey. Make sure you incorporate it well into the shea butter.
  3. Add Essential Oils and Flavoring: Stir in the sweet orange essential oil and orange flavoring. Mix well.
  4. Add Mica Powder: Add a pinch of mica powder to give your lip balm a subtle hint of color if desired. Stir until the color distributes evenly throughout the mixture.
  5. Set the Lip Balm: Pour the mixture into your lip balm containers and allow it to cool and solidify. This step could take a few hours at room temperature, but you can speed up the process by placing them in the refrigerator.

Minty Fresh

Immerse yourself in the rejuvenating spirit of spring with the Minty Fresh Lip Balm. This recipe offers a delightful burst of freshness while providing nourishment for your lips.


  • One tablespoon of beeswax pellets
  • Two tablespoons of sweet almond oil
  • One teaspoon of raw honey
  • Four to six drops of Mint Flavoring
  • Five drops of Peppermint Essential oil


  1. Melt the Beeswax: Melt the beeswax pellets in a heat-safe bowl over a pot of hot water. Don’t overheat the beeswax as it can become too hard. 
  2. Mix in Almond Oil: Blend in the sweet almond oil once the beeswax melts. Stir it well to ensure that the ingredients thoroughly combine.
  3. Add the Honey: Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in your raw honey. 
  4. Infuse with Mint Flavoring: Add your drops of Mint Flavoring and peppermint essential oil. These additions will give your lip balm a refreshing and invigorating minty twist.
  5. Pour and Set: Pour the liquid lip balm into empty lip balm tubes or containers. Allow it to cool down and solidify before use. You can expedite this process by placing your containers in the refrigerator.
