Make Your Own Lip Balm and Lip Gloss!
The Basic Recipe:

1/4 cup vegetable or nut oil
1/4 oz beeswax
1 tsp honey or glycerine - humectants 1/2 to 1 tsp natural flavoring oil a.k.a Essential Oil.

How to make Basic Lip Gloss or Lip Balm Recipe Directions

Heat the oil and beeswax in a double boiler (or microvave) until the beeswax is melted. Remove from heat and whip with an electric beater until creamy. Add the honey or glycerine and approx 5 drops 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 beet 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. Don't use food coloring, it may contain alcohol base.

Never use extracts found in cooking sections of the grocery stores as they contain alcohol. Use safe essential oils, some types may not be safe for consumption or for people with sensitive skin. Do your homework first. The good part about them is they have thousands of great flavors. Comfrey, Rosemary, Tea Tree or Camphor Oils are excellent for healing effects.

How do you know if it's time to throw away your gloss? If it changes color, odor, or texture - throw it away.
