You've heard the saying- "put your money where your mouth is." At GloryBee we like to say, "Put your honey where your mouth is!" This easy do-it- yourself recipe will add volume and texture to your lips the all natural way. If you're looking to moisturize your lips with a shine that wows, this unique fruity lip gloss may quickly become your go-to look.
7-8 teaspoons castor oil (sweet almond or jojoba oil can also be used)
2 teaspoons beeswax
1 teaspoon honey
10 drops lemon, orange, lime, or other essential oil
Mica ( Or for colorant you can also use ¼ tube or less of your favorite natural, synthetic-free colored lipstick)
5 gram cream/ointment jars
- In a small saucepan over low heat or double boiler, warm oil, beeswax, and honey until the wax is just melted. Use 8 teaspoons of oil for a softer consistency; use 7 teaspoons for a firmer balm.
- Remove from heat. Add the essential oil or flavoring and the colored lipstick (or Mica if desired), and stir until the lip-stick is melted.
- Set the pan in a shallow ice-water bath. Using a whisk or spoon, stir rapidly for 30-60 seconds until the honey is completely incorporated and the formula is like thick frosting. It will be a pale yellow color unless you’ve added colorant.
- Spoon the mixture into storage containers, and cap. Let the mixture set for 2 hours before use. No refrigeration is required, but for maximum freshness and taste, please use within 1 year.
