In a small bowl, combine the following amounts:

Using a grater, shed the beeswax. You will need 2 tablespoons of this grated beeswax

Shea Butter used to make Homemade Lip Gloss

In a microwave safe dish, heat the coconut oil, the beeswax, and the shea butter down to a liquid form (a minute or less usually). Then, gently mix the ingredients together and add a couple drops of vanilla essential oil. The amount of essential oil and the scent of the oil you use is up to you! Pick a scent you love because you’re going to love this lip gloss. Your melted mixture will look like this:

  1. This will be fun to make. I have been looking at a lot of homemade lip balms. Just one thing. Shea butter could be a serious problem for anyone with nut allergies. BE AWARE!!!!
    Thanks for posting this. I will try it minus the shea butter. I have found an un-petroleum jelly to mix with the other ingredients that I am going to try.

  2. Hi Kelly,
    What an amazing post, thank you for sharing it! šŸ™‚ I am planning to make these for Christmas to put into my family’s stockings. I do have two questions? For the coconut oil I am not sure which one to use. The store that I shop at had two different types. One is for cooking and the other can be used in the hair or on the body but both are edible. Which one would you recommend? The second question would be how long from the day that it is made does it last for?
    Thank you for this amazing all natural, healthy, tutorial! šŸ™‚
