Lip Gloss

Glossy, home made lip gloss!

A fabulous natural lip gloss making glossy, soothed lips the natural way! You can just make this with a flavoured oil if you wanted.  I have seen recipes that use Beetroot juice to colour the lip gloss and I intended to try it…but by the time I got home after shopping, thought “meh” and used a favourite lipstick that was worn down to the nub.  To be honest, the colour was not as bright as the lipstick (bright Diva red) but left a nice pinkish sheen.  You would need to play around with the colour if you wanted a deeper tint.  You need to check the contents of any lipstick you use before you call it “natural lip gloss”.    I will know and glare at you across the crowded room in a stare of judgement….. then will admire your glossy lips..!

I should add that I purchase my containers from this from Sephora.  There may be other places but this was the nearest to me.  It was a long day at work and I did not want to drive very far….

INGREDIENTS

2 tspns beeswax

2 tblspns, sweet almond oil or coconut oil

5 drops essential oil (Optional, such as orange, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, coconut or
mint)

2 drops vitamin E capsule

1/4 tspn lipstick

PREPARATION

    • Melt the oil and beeswax together.
    • Remove from the heat. If coloring, stir in the lipstick.
    • When the mixture has cooled to lukewarm, stir in essential oil (if used) and the vitamin E. Transfer to a small container.
    • When cold, apply on lips, pout and enjoy!
