What You Will Need:
1/8 cup Coconut Oil (available at most grocery stores or health food stores)
1/4 cup Beeswax (available at craft stores)
1/8 cup Shea Butter (available at craft stores or health food stores)
1 tsp Coconut or Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Rose Petals (fresh or dried), feel free to substitute a different flower or herb here
1 tsp Sweet Almond Oil (available at craft stores)
*This recipe makes enough for about 6 tubes or small containers
How to Assemble:
Measure all of the ingredients into a small saucepan or Pyrex container
Heat on low until everything is melted, next page...
Heat on low until everything is melted, or if using microwave heat in 30 second intervals until completely melted
Strain petals if you wish, I left them in, they look really pretty!
Pour into sanitized containers of your choice
Let cool completely (couple hours) and they’re ready to use!
8 Drops peppermint oil
2 Tbsp carrier oil (such as almond oil—this dilutes the peppermint oil from a burn to a tingle)
1 Tbsp beeswax pellets
Containers (hit up a department store for sample jars or order your own)
Optional: lipstick shavings for a hint of tint
Put the two tablespoons carrier oil and one tablespoon beeswax in a glass jar and close the lid. Heat the jar in a pot with water on medium-high heat until wax is melted. Remove jar from pot and stir mixture. Next page...
Add peppermint oil with a dropper (not too much or it’ll burn your lips—we recommend starting with eight drops and adding more if necessary). If you’d like your balm to be tinted, stir in your lipstick shavings until your desired color is achieved. Then immediately pour the mixture into your containers. Let stand for two hours until hard.
1. Melt the beeswax, carnauba wax, cocoa butter & shea butter in the double boiler along with the almond oil.
2. Add hemp oil and honey and stir until liquid. The recipe notes that as honey is not soluble with oil, it won’t totally dissolve with heating and needs to be mixed with the milk frother.
3. Remove from heat, add essential oils, and blend with the frother while the mixture cools but still pourable.
4. Pour into tubes and leave untouched to set.
4 Tbs Coconut Oil
3 Tbs Petroleum Jelly (update: we’ve had people recommend shea butter as an alternative!)
1 Tbs Beeswax, shaved
A Squirt of kool-aid (we used the liquid variety but the powder works perfectly as well!)
A Small container (we re-purposed some empty Burt’s Bees containers)
1. Mix first three ingredients in a microwave save bowl.
2. After blended, heat for 1 minute. If you’re doing different colors, separate your mixture into different bowls.
3. Mix in the kool-aid until desired colour is reached.
4. Pour mixture into your containers and pop it into the fridge for an 1 or 2 hours
1 cup shaved beeswax (you can use a cheese grater or a knife, but be careful!)
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp vitamin E oil
2-3 drops tea tree oil
To avoid burning the beeswax, melt it using a double boiling system. This sounds more complicated than it is. I don’t have a double boiler, so I boiled water in a regular pot and then placed a saucepan on top of that pot, and melted the beeswax in the saucepan. Add the coconut oil to the beeswax and stir until melted, and remove from the boiling water pot. Now add your vitamin E oil and tea tree oil and mix in while still hot. Pour in container.
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure almond oil
1 teaspoon cocoa butter
3-4 drops pure vitamin E oil
1-2 drops pure peppermint extract
3-4 semisweet chocolate chips
Place all ingredients in a small heat-safe bowl (glass or metal is good) and set aside.
Place a small saucepan with about 1 inch of water in it over medium-low heat, and heat until the water is steaming and simmering.
Set the bowl on top of the steaming pot of water, taking care that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water.
Using a small spoon or spatula, slowly melt the ingredients until they are melted and thoroughly combined. This should take about 5 minutes.
When the ingredients are combined and the mixture is smooth, pour the lip gloss into a small, clean container
Vaseline or Un-Petroleum Jelly
Crystal Light (I used Cherry Pomegranate and Raspberry Lemonade) (Kool-Aid apparently work as well, but I haven’t tried)
a small container (i charmed a salesperson at Sephora and they gave me a bunch of these)
a mixing tool (I used a plastic knife after my q-tip got too goopy)
Fill the empty small container with your Un-Petroleum Jelly. Add the Crystal Light. Keep adding and stirring till you have your desired color. If you put it on right away it will be exfoliating. Wait an hour and the granules will dissolve. Pucker up!
