What do you need to make homemade lip gloss?
This homemade lip gloss only requires a few ingredients. The nourishing lip gloss base is liquid coconut oil. This lip oil was chosen for its ability to repair dry, chapped lips.
As Healthline says, “In alternative medicine, coconut oil is a mainstay in burn treatment. This is due to its moisture, as well as its analgesic (pain-relieving) properties. These same effects can translate to benefits for chapped, cracked lips.”
Furthermore, coconut oil is an excellent emollient that works to moisturize and protect lips from the elements.
Essential Oils For Lip Gloss
I suggest using Young Living essential oils because they are pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. If you need Young Living essential oils, I am a distributor so you can order them through my website here. If you choose to a different brand, just be sure they are high quality and pure.
Peppermint essential oil was chosen for this lip gloss because it has a fresh scent and provides a slightly cooling sensation which could almost be described as tingly.
Orange essential oil is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. It is great for soothing lips and has a wonderful scent.
Essential oils are extremely potent. For this reason, it is important to dilute them in the carrier coconut lip oil before application and follow safety guidelines.
If you need an essential oil roller bottle for this vegan clear lip gloss recipe you can find them at craft stores or on amazon.
How To Make Liquid Lip Gloss:
Start by taking the lid and roller off of your bottle. For this Moisturizing Essential Oil Flavored Lip Gloss you will want to add 5 drops of your uplifting Orange Essential Oil and 5 drops of your Peppermint Essential Oil. (*I only use Young Living Essential Oils and recommend this brand especially if there is a chance of ingesting your oils. This company has very high standards and only uses the best plants and distillation methods to get their oils.)
Once you have added your essential oils to the roller bottle, fill the rest of the bottle up with your liquid coconut oil. (Alternatively, you can use sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil or even avocado oil if you prefer. Those are all great for your skin and safe to put on your lips).
Pop the roller on your bottle, shake, and your essential oil roller bottle lip gloss is ready to be applied! This peppermint flavored lip gloss feels great on your lips and helps heal chapped lips while protecting them from further cracking.
How To Use Homemade Lip Gloss:
