Make Your Own Kiss Gloss


A few weeks ago, I posted a recipe for Homemade Kiss Gloss on my home blog, CheekyKitchen. It was a simple recipe which included coconut oil and petroleum jelly. In the weeks since posting the “recipe,”  I’ve had several readers ask for a recipe which doesn’t include petroleum products, since they are adverse for both body and earth. So, my kids and I trekked to Whole Foods last weekend and grabbed several all natural ingredients, then buzzed home and mixed up a batch of all new, super delish Kiss Gloss. Here’s how to make a batch in your own kitchen.

Homemade Kiss Gloss

What You’ll Need:

3 tablespoons beeswax (about 1 oz)
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons cocoa butter
3 tablespoons shea butter
the tip of a good quality lipstick (if you desire a bit of color to your gloss)
18 lip balm containers (we used mini plastic bead containers, purchased from JoAnn)
5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil (lemon, peppermint, or lavendar make a nice lip balm)

1. Melt beeswax in a small pan over low heat. Add coconut oil, cocoa butter, and shea butter, melting the ingredients together. Add your lipstick & essential oils to the mixture, if desired.

2. Using a small spoon, pour the melted liquid into your lip balm containers.

3. Cool completely to harden. Cover with cap and decorate or label if you’d like.
