Lip gloss recipe

2 tsp. beeswax

7 tsp. castor oil or jojoba oil or sweet almond oil
1 tsp. honey
5 drops of any essential oil such as lemon, orange, mint, peppermint, lime, etc.

 

Melt the oil and beeswax together in a small pan over low heat until the beeswax is melted. Remove from heat and add honey and stir well. Once the mixture is almost cool add in the essential oil, mix it again and then pour into your lip balm container. If you want, you can add more beeswax (about 1/2 tsp or so) so that the balm is more solid. Otherwise it may come out like a gloss.
