Eco-Diva DIY: Organic Lipgloss



  • 7 tsp. sweet almond oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. beeswax
  • 1 Vitamin E capsule
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 5 drops vanilla or essential oil
  • Recycled cosmetic/balm container with lid


  • Melt the sweet almond oil and beeswax in a pan or microwave
  • Remove the mixture, and pierce the vitamin E capsule with a pin or tip or a knife, and squirt into mixture.
  • Whisk the contents of the VitE capsule, honey, and flavouring, into the oil mixture, continuing to whisk until set.
  • Spoon your new lip-gloss into a small, balm container with tight lid.

N.B: Almond oil is an emollient, like glycerine. It locks in the moisture and keeps it there, leaving the lips soft and hydrated.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the skin heal and remain healthy. These two are a great combination. Your lips will be protected from free radicals and nourished at the same time.
