DIY Lemon Lip Gloss Recipe

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

(Recipe courtesy of Guide to Spas) 

2 teaspoons of grated beeswax or pellets
1 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon Aloe Vera
1 teaspoon pure lemon extract
1 tablespoon Vitamin E Oil
3-6 drops of Lemon Essential Oil

Select a lip gloss pot, readily available from container stores, or, from used makeup or cosmetics.  Insure the container is sterile by boiling it in hot water. This will help prevent contamination of your finished product, which could lead to spoilage. Melt beeswax, remove from heat and while constantly stirring – add honey, aloe vera, almond extract, and Vitamin E. Add the Lemon essential oil last.   Store in a clean pot, preferably in the refrigerator.

For quality, organic essential oils and other ingredients for this project, I highly recommend shopping with Mountain Rose Herbs.
