How to Make Your Own Lip Balm and Lip Gloss!

Use the basic recipe to make your own lip gloss frugal living at it's bestHere’s How to Make Your Own Lip Balm and Lip Gloss!

The basic formula is:

1/4 cup vegetable or nut oil
1/4 ounce beeswax
1 teaspoon honey or glycerin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon natural flavoring oil aka Essential Oil.
Heat the oil and beeswax in a double boiler (or microwave) until the beeswax has melted.Remove from heat and whip with an electric beater until creamy.Add the honey or glycerin and approximately 5 drops of flavoring oil; whip some more.Add more flavoring if desired.Store in small glass jars, small Tupperware bowls, decorative tins or film containers.Try different oils on your lips to choose the best one for your skin and taste preference.If the Balm is too hard (waxy), add more oil to your mixture.If it is too soft, add more wax.You can add a few drops of beetroot juice for a beautiful & natural red color. But instead of going to that trouble, you can just shave off a little of your lip stick for that beautiful (not natural) color. Tip: Don't use food coloring as it may contain alcohol base.Never use extracts found in cooking sections of the grocery stores as they contain alcohol.Use safe essential oils. The good part about them is they have thousands of great flavors. Comfrey, Rosemary, Tea Tree or Camphor Oils are excellent for healing effects.
Question:How do you know if it's time to throw away your gloss?If it changes color, odor, or texture, throw it away.

WE 100% agree! We beleive that the more you can do yourself the healthier you will become. Example: Look at how healthy some of the older generation are, they have stayed away from all of the chemicals most of their lives and they are able to grow old gracefully. Thanks the Frugal Maniac

Fantastic blog! I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your blog is outstanding; the issue is something that not a lot of people are talking intelligently about it. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
