Lip Gloss – Vanilla

Lip Gloss – Vanilla

No surprises here. Mix vanilla oil into our normal recipe and create this gloss that smells and tastes like vanilla!

What you need

80 ml Jojoba
15 ml Beeswax
2 tsp of Honey
10 drops of Vanilla essence
Optional lipstick dye


Melt the oils and beeswax in a double boiler (pan over a pan of water) on a low heat until the wax is melted. Remove it from the heat and while the mix is still hot add any remaining ingredients such as essential oil or your optional coloring.

Mix all the ingredients together well and while hot pour into suitable pots or containers. Allow to set before use.

Insure all containers are sterile by boiling them to prevent contamination of your lip loss.

If you wish to dye this balm you can use a cosmetic coloring available from home made body product supply stores. You can also use a small amount of store bought lipstick to tint the balm.

Alternatively you can also use colored beeswax or candle dye as it is being used in such a small quantity it will not stain or harm your skin.


  1. maybe check a body store for jojoba. gotta try this recipie need gifts lol!

  2. This lip gloss gave a definite shine, was very soft on the lips and prevented dehydration. As well as this, the scent was lovely. A great little gift for a birthday or just as a present. Would recommend this 🙂
