Homemade Lip Gloss

So far for 2017 I have spent hours outside this winter. Hiking has brought back the joys of cold crisp days in  Wisconsin. I had forgotten how the air smells fresh. How beautiful the landscape and trees are in black and white. How ice crunches and how slippery mud is!

Being outside for hours was doing a number on my lips. My lips were extremely dry and cracked.  I decided to start making my own natural lip gloss. My Lip Gloss is turning into a favorite of my friends and family.

Here is my recipe for 
Homemade Lip Gloss

1/3 cup of Avocado Oil
1/3 cup of Beeswax
1/3 Cup of Coconut Oil
1/3 Cup of Grape-seed Oil
1 Teaspoon of Vitamin E
Essential Oils of your choice 10 - 15 drops

Mix Avocado, Coconut, Grape-seed Oils in a medium size sauce pan. Add beeswax and melt all ingredients.

When oils and beeswax are totally melted add Vitamin E and Essential Oils.  Mix well.

Immediately pour into lip gloss tubes. When lip gloss has set - add top to each tube.
All of the lip gloss tubes in the pic were made from one patch of the above lip gloss recipe.

For this patch I used Lemon Essential Oil - great for healing and the smell is delicious!

You can purchase the lip gloss tubs from Amazon ~ they are a very reasonable price. 

I also make great BODY LOTION  ~ I will post that recipe soon.
