Commercial lip gloss can contain artificial colors and fragrances which can be toxic to your health. Take the worry out of your lip gloss by making your own! These lip gloss sticks are easy and fun to make and can be customized with your favorite color and essential oils.
1 gram white beeswax
3 grams Shea butter (or virgin coconut oil)
2 grams jojoba oil (or grape seed, Fractionated Coconut, or almond oil)
10 grams castor oil
1 gram vitamin E
7 drops of your favorite essential oil
Pigment, such as organic beet root powder or mineral makeup
Note: this is enough to fill two standard lip gloss tubes. You can find empty lip gloss tubes online and at local beauty stores.
- Place all ingredients, except for essential oil, into a glass jar.
- Place jar in a saucepan with 1-1.5 inches of boiling water.
- Once melted, remove and let cool for 2 minutes.
- Add essential oils.
Start with a little and add more until you get desired color.
For color, add pigment and stir until combined.
Using a dropper, transfer into the lip gloss containers. If it starts to get too thick, place glass jar back in warm water to melt.
You’re done! Enjoy your moisturizing and natural lip gloss!
