DIY Natural Lip Gloss

DIY Natural Lip Gloss
How to make your own lip gloss using natural ingredients for those soft, kissable lips.

Ingredients:

1/2 tbsp. Cocoa Butter
2 tsp. Beeswax Pellets
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1/2 tsp. Castor Oil
1/2 tsp. Sesame Oil
1/4 tsp. Vitamin E Oil
1 drop Eucalyptus Essential Oil (optional)
1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil (optional)

Also Needed:
1 tbsp. Fresh Raspberries
or 2 drops Red Food Coloring

What To Do:
In a small glass jar, place the coco butter and beeswax pellets together.

Fill 2 cups of water in a medium sauce pan and put over a low heat on the stove top.

Place the glass jar in the water and slowly stir the mixture using a wooden spoon or stick until melted.

Keep the heat on a low setting as you don’t want your mixture to burn.

After a few minutes, remove from heat and add your remaining ingredients.

Take your fresh raspberries and mash them together, add a few drops of raspberry juice to give it that vibrant red color.

You can also use a few drops of food coloring.

Add any essential oils and stir one more time using a wooden stick.

Transfer mixture to a small balm container with lid for easier storage.

Once fully hardened your balm will be ready t use and can be stored for up to a month.
