How To Make Lip Gloss

Discovering how to make lip gloss was the highlight of my week! I live in a very dry area and this homemade lip gloss recipe is just what I needed to add some nutrients and moisture!

This first recipe is cheaper than the store bought stuff and so versatile that you'll love it so much more!

And all you need are three simple ingredients for another great homemade skin care product!

Three Ingredient Lip Gloss
  • 1/4 C Beeswax
  • 1 C Olive Oil
  • Essential Oils
    I strongly recommend that you NOT buy the beeswax in a big chunk.

Grating beeswax with a cheese grater is "no bueno!" It also comes in little pellets (that I wish I'd gotten) and would make this experience much quicker and more enjoyable!

Simply put the olive oil and the beeswax into a glass measuring cup and place into a double-broiler. Melt the beeswax slowly, stirring periodically. Add your essential oils or flavoring oils and pour into the containers. I used a couple of lip pots as well as some lip tubes! These worked wonderfully for me!

Peppermint Essential Oil makes my lips feel zippy!

Melaleuca Essential Oil is a must for cold sore season!

Lavender Essential Oil makes your lips feel luscious!


And there you have it! More easy homemade gift ideas!

Using the recipe above, substitute the essential oils for some powdered kool-aid. Just pour into the mixture, when it begins to cool, until you get the color you want. Make sure it's dissolved well and pour into your containers.

**Add some skin safe glittery sparkles for extra fun!**

  • 4 tsp. castor sugar or sugar in the raw
  • 1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Edible flavoring (or go without since the sugar tastes yummy as it is) -When I made mine, I used flavoring oil fromBrambleberry.

Mix the olive oil (or enjoy the benefits of coconut oil) into the sugar until it's mixed well. Add your flavoring oil if desired. You'll want the mixture to be loose and crumbly.

To store my sugar lip scrub, I used bead containers found at the local craft store. Any empty cosmetic container would also do the trick.
