Natural Naked Moisture Riche Lip Gloss Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2 measured Tablespoons beeswax
1/2 ounce (by weight) cocoa butter
1/2 ounce (by weight) shea butter
1/2 ounce (by weight) hemp seed butter (or additional 1/2 oz. shea butter and 1 teaspoon hemp seed oil)
1 measured Tablespoon avocado oil
1 measured Tablespoon wheat germ oil
1 ml vitamin E oil
1 ml jojoba oil

Supplies:

Spoon
Large Glass Pyrex Measuring Cup
Microwave (or double boiler)
Digital scale
10 – 1/4 oz. plastic jars with lids
glass dropper or 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipettes

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the butters.

In a double boiler or microwave, start by melting your solid ingredients first starting with the beeswax. Measure out the beeswax using a Tablespoon measurement and add to the glass measuring cup. Melt on reduced power in the microwave.

Weigh out the cocoa butter and once the beeswax is mostly melted through, add the cocoa butter and continue heating until melted completely.

Next, weigh out the hemp and shea butters, then stir in your butters and mix well. Heat for an additional 30 seconds if needed, then measure out the avocado and wheat germ oils and stir in with the butters and beeswax

Finally, use a pipette to measure out the jojoba and vitamin E oils and stir into the lip gloss mixture. Slowly pour the liquid lip gloss into lip gloss pots and allow to cool completely. Then tightly screw on the cap and store in a cool, dry location.

Usage:

To use, simply apply to lips. Also great for those troubled spots on skin such as cracked hands or patches of eczema.

Why Avocado Oil?

Avocado oil contains high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E as well as amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. It is often used to treat skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, and other skin ailments and is highly recommended to those with sensitive skin, problem skin and other irritations that require vitamin rich oil.

Why Wheat Germ Oil?

Wheat Germ oil is a natural source of Vitamin E, A, D, proteins, Lecithin, and Squalene and is often applied externally for numerous irritations including roughness of the skin, cracking, chaffing and to help reverse the effects of wrinkling.

Why Jojoba Oil?

Jojoba oil is readily absorbed by skin as it’s properties are similar to our skin’s own sebum.

Why Vitamin E?

Vitamin E helps to prevent rancidity in cosmetics and it acts as an anti-oxidant in creams, lotions, and cosmetics.

Why Hemp Seed Oil?

Hemp seed oil offers its healing and regenerative properties. It is a source of complete protein and contains all twenty know amino acids as well as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, and E.

Why Shea Butter?

Shea butter forms a breathable, water-resistant film and is highly prized for its moisturizing properties.

Why Cocoa Butter?

Cocoa butter adds a rich, creamy, and thick consistency to lotions, soaps, creams, and toiletry items and helps to reduce dryness and improve skin elasticity.

DIY Lemon Lip Gloss Recipe

LEMON LIP GLOSS
(Recipe courtesy of SpaIndex.com: Guide to Spas) 

INGREDIENTS:
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

DIRECTIONS:
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.

Have you ever wanted to make your own lip balms? Making lip balms is easy, although it can be a bit messy as well. The reward is well worth the clean up though!
iMake Blog has a wonderful lip balm tutorial for crafting your own custom lip balms in the amount you need. Quantities of ingredients are listed in ratios so you can make as much or as little as you like, and by varying ratios you can make a harder or softer lip balm.
When choosing your flavoring or scent for your lip balm there are several things to remember. If you are using essential oils be sure you buy and use only essential oils that are safe for lips. Your supplier should mention whether or not they are suitable for use in lip balms. These essential oils should be Certified 100% Pure. Additionally, you’ll not want to scent your lip balm batch with more than 1% essential oils to your batch’s total weight.
Flavor fragrances or flavor oils as well should be specified for use in lip balms. Don’t use regular fragrance oils in your lip balms. As with the essential oils, usage of flavor fragrances should consist of no more than 1% of your total recipe while generally with flavor oils you can use .4 – 4%. Using too much of a flavor oil can make your balms bitter, so be precise! You can also buy sweetener for your lip balms which should be used at 1-2% of your recipe should your flavor oil come unsweetened.
