Natural Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

Ingredients:

.25 oz. grapeseed oil
.15 oz. sunflower oil
.1 oz. refined (76° melt point) coconut oil
.2 oz. beeswax
.05 oz. lanolin
1/4 teaspoon alkanet root powder
10 drops spearmint essential oil
6 drops peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

To create this natural tinted lip balm recipe, you’ll begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax. Place in double boiler or in a small one cup glass Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power until the beeswax has melted fully.

Now weigh out the lanolin and coconut oil and mix into the melted beeswax. You may need to heat the mixture again so all of the ingredients are liquified.

Measure out the alkanet root powder with a measuring spoon and stir into the hot melted beeswax, lanolin and coconut oil. (This winter lip balm recipe, while it looks dark, actually goes on very sheer with just a tiny hint of red. For darker color use more alkanet root powder. Alternately you may omit it altogether if you want a completely clear product.)

Next, weigh the grape seed and sunflower oils and stir into the other ingredients.

Use a dropper or transfer pipette to add the essential oils. Give one final stir then pour into empty lip balm tubes. Allow to cool completely then decorate your tubes as desired. (I used this clip art from Citrus & Mint.)

This heal and protect winter lip balm recipe yields five lip balms. To use simply apply to lips as desired.

2 in 1 Fuchsia DIY Lip Stain and Cream Blush Recipe

Ingredients:

14 grams beeswax
28 grams 76 degree melt point refined coconut oil
8 grams grapeseed oil
10 drops GMO-free Vitamin E oil
10 drops rosemary extract
8 grams red orange oil locking mica shimmer powder

Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
plastic transfer pipettes
seven – 10g (1/3 oz.) lip balm pots with lids
silicone chocolate flower mold
mixing utensil (a butter knife works great!)

Instructions:

For this recipe you will use a digital scale to weigh out the beeswax, coconut oil, grape seed oil and mica. Start by weighing out the beeswax in a glass pyrex measuring cup, then heat the beeswax in the microwave until melted, about 3 minutes. Carefully remove from microwave using a pot holder or kitchen towel, then stir in 28 grams of coconut oil. If mixture starts to solidify, place back in the microwave and heat for 20-30 seconds more until all ingredients have full melted. Now weigh out the grape seed oil and stir into the wax and coconut oil.

Using a plastic transfer pipette, add ten drops of vitamin E. Repeat with the rosemary extract using a new pipette to prevent cross contamination.

Finally weigh out the mica colorant and stir into the cream blush and lip tint base. Mix well, then slowly pour the base equally into seven of the flower shaped cavities of your silicone mold. (Or simply pour into the lip balm pots if you don’t wish to mold your makeup.) Allow the makeup to harden completely, then remove from mold and place one flower shaped 2 in 1 lip and cheek stain into each of your seven lip balm pots and cap.

Allow at least twenty-four hours to pass before using. I don’t know why, but it seems to make a difference on how the makeup looks when applied.  To use, simply add a small amount to cheeks or lips. The resulting product will be a lovely shade of fuchsia on skin with a touch of shimmer. Use less for a lighter, more natural look. Or use more for an intense look. This particular color is not approved for use on eyes.

If you prefer a darker, deeper red or one that is approved for use on eyes, then you can substitute the red orange oil locking mica shimmer powder with a red oxide pigment powder. For a touch of shimmer use 7 grams of red oxide pigment powder and 1 gram of white sparkle pigment powder or diamond dust mica.
