Place your chosen fruit and essential oil into a small bowl. Add coconut oil and mash the fruit into a soupy mixture. Drain the liquid into an airtight container, removing any chunks. Store in refrigerator for long-term use. Because there is no preservative you will want to store it in fridge when not in use and discard after 2 to 4 weeks. Apply a layer or two to lips and enjoy your gorgeous and custom-made natural lip stain!

Voila! Now let’s learn how to mix up a batch of Orange Creamsicle Lip Balm. You’ll need:

30 drops dōTERRA Wild Orange

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Place everything but Wild Orange and vanilla into glass measuring cup or bowl. Fill large saucepan with one to one-and-a-half inches of water. Bring to boil.
