This citrus lip gloss is anything but sour, but it will surely make you pucker up those kissable lips! This all-natural recipe is a result of my lip balm experimentation with different oils. While some balms are rich and buttery, this one turned out super shiny on my lips and I couldn’t love it more.
I added bright citrus essential oils to uplift and sensual ylang ylang to bring on the romance. The result adds just the right amount of sparkle to a night out. Oh, and did I mention it’s all-natural? Here is how you can make it at home:
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tbsp sweet almond oil
- 1 tbsp castor oil
- 1 tbsp grated beeswax
- 1 tsp candelilla wax
- 10 drops sweet orange essential oil
- 5 drops ylang ylang essential oil
- Double boiler
- Small spatula or metal spoon
- 12 lip balm tubes
Melt all of the ingredients except the essential oils in the double boiler. When just melted, remove from heat, add essential oils, and blend well. Pour into lip balm pots and leave untouched to set.
