There are so many kinds of lip balm out there, but it can be hard to find just the right one. What鈥檚 the solution? Make your own, of course! It鈥檚 surprisingly simple to whip up a batch of lip balm or tinted gloss that鈥檚 perfectly customized to your鈥aste. All you need is a base of beeswax or coconut oil, a flavor, and a tint, and you鈥檙e done! We rounded up聽20 sweet variations, and we think they鈥檙e the balm.

1. Cupcake EOS Lip Tutorial: Talk about turning something plain into something totally Instagram-worthy! These DIY cupcake lip balms are made from聽used聽containers paired with some seriously hydrating (and fun) ingredients that you and your inner kid can get down with. (via DIY Projects for Teens)

2. 10 Minute DIY Lip Balm: With only three simple ingredients (beeswax, shea butter, and coconut oil), you can have a homemade聽lip balm in less time than it takes you to go to the store and buy one. These are incredibly moisturizing and seriously fun to whip up. What more could you ask for?! (via Happiness Is Homemade)

3. Crystal Light Lip Balm: You can make this lippie in your kitchen easily for under $5. Only requiring some Crystal Light iced tea packets and Vaseline, meet the DIY project you can do in under ten聽minutes flat. Boom! (via Love U Madly)

4. Lime Lip Balm: Ring in the warmer weather with a DIY lime lip balm that will keep your lips soft and聽supple even in the heat of summer. We totally wouldn鈥檛 be opposed to pairing this lip balm with a margarita on a warm聽day, amiright? (via Simply Stacie)

5. DIY Tinted Raspberry Lip Balm: Using real raspberries, this lip balm tastes like a fruit smoothie (and who doesn鈥檛 love that?!). Aside from the yum factor, it also gives your lips loads of moisture and聽a natural pink tint. Hello, gorgeous! (via Hello Glow)

6. Homemade Plumping Lip Balm: For those craving plumped lips (ahem, Kylie Jenner), making this homemade cinnamon lip balm needs to be next on your to-do list. You can achieve fuller lips using natural ingredients instead of the tingling balms that can be uncomfortable聽(and expensive!). (via Hello Glow)

7. Raspberry Lemon Lip Balm: The perfect DIY project to start off the spring, you鈥檒l love the way your lips feel after applying this beauty. We also dig聽that this project can be done in the microwave leaving you with a smaller cleanup! (via Simplistically Living)

8.聽Coconut Rose Lip Balm: The rose petals in these lip pots make for a beautiful presentation. You can also substitute in another favorite flower or herb. And there鈥檚 a bonus lip scrub in this post, too! (via聽My Baking Addiction)

9.聽Peppermint Lip Balm: There are a lot of things to love about this peppermint-flavor tinted balm, but our favorite thing is the use of an empty Altoids tin as the container. Genius! (via聽Beautylish)

10.聽Hemp & Honey: The best part about this lip balm is the manuka honey, which actually has antibacterial properties, in addition to softening your lips! (via聽Garden Therapy)

11.聽Kool-Aid Lip Balm: Yes, we know what you鈥檙e thinking, Kool-Aid in a lip balm? Yes! Not only does it give the coconut oil and beeswax a pretty hue, but that you can also have tropical punch flavor. (via聽Style Me Pretty)

12.聽Wedding Lip Balm Favors: Even if you don鈥檛 want to make your own lip balm, use these labels over standard tubes for a cute wedding favor. (via聽Something Turquoise)

13.聽Sparkly Strawberry Lip Balm: How do you add sparkle to your homemade recipe? Just add a bit of edible glitter. We鈥檇 put the emphasis on a little bit.聽(via聽Torie Jayne)

14.聽Pink Tinted Lip Balm: This lip balm is pretty basic, it has beeswax for a little bit of natural SPF and some melted lipstick for color. But the most helpful part of this post is the idea to use a large plastic syringe to fill the pots. (via聽Delia Creates)

15.聽Mint Chocolate Lip Balm: Yes! This lip balm is basically dessert since it involves actual chocolate chips. (via聽food plus words)


16.聽Peppermint Oil Lip Balm: Adding a bit of聽peppermint oil to this balm gives it a tingly flavor. (via @juleskeim/Free People)

17.聽Swirled Lip Balm: If you鈥檙e giving lip balm for a gift might we suggest this swirled version. It鈥檚 a step beyond basic, making it an easy and impressive favor. (via聽Rustic Escentuals)

18.聽DIY Lip Gloss: Each of these balms uses the same basic recipe. But this post has a great guide to different flavors and colors you can mix in. It鈥檚 basically a toolkit for creating your own recipes. (via聽girl. Inspired)

19.聽Homemade Birthday Cake Lip Balm: There鈥檚 cupcake and birthday cake flavored everything. So why not make your own lip balm with the flavor? The key is the buttercream cupcake oil. Sweet.聽(via聽Rebecca鈥檚 Soap Deli News)

20.聽2-Ingredient Lip Balm: Similar to the Kool-Aid idea, this tinted gloss, only uses two ingredients 鈥 Crystal Light powder and petroleum jelly. No melting required! (via聽Love U Madly)

Bonus!聽Bottle Cap Pot:聽Okay, this might not be the most practical option, but we love the idea of making lip balms in bottle caps. Plus there are tons of flavor ideas in this post. (via聽Autostraddle)
