I know what you're thinking! Why would you make your own lip gloss? Well why not? It's fun, it's easy, it's cheap, and all natural. There is nothing better than having natural ingredients on your skin…they really do make a difference!

This lip gloss that you will make today, is a lemon lip gloss. Not only is it extremely easy to make, but it is absolutely delicious! Not to mention that your lips will love you for it as this home made lip gloss will nourish the skin on your lips and rejuvenate them.

Here is what you need to gather to make your own lip gloss.


1 tsp honey

1 tbsp vitamin E oil

1 tsp aloe vera

2 tsp grated beeswax

1 tbsp pure almond extract

6 drops of lemon essential oil


Once you've gathered all the essentials, you can start cooking! Melt the beeswax in a pot or pan, and remove from heat when it's melted. Don't forget to stir constantly-it's very important as the wax can harden up in a matter of seconds if it's not stirred.

While you are stirring, add the honey, the aloe vera, the almond extract, and the vitamin E. Lastly, add the lemon essential oil.

Now all you have to do is apply the lemon lip gloss to your lips. Your lips will feel amazing, look amazing, and smell amazing too!

I am ten years old and I have made MILLIONS of lip glosses… you should see my fridge it’s filled with loads of lip balms! I have made different types, as well. Here’s my favourite: You will need – Vaseline/Petroleum Jelly Sugar (brown works best) An old chapstick Something sharp enough to cut the chapstick with. An eyeshadow applicator without the sponge works great. A small pot (I don’t HAVE any, I live in Melbourne so could someone tell me a shop that sells lip balm pots? And plus, you can use an empty bottle cap like I do) Something… Read more »

I love the recipe by Lauren, it makes a lot and its really shiny, but does anyone make one with lots of flavor? Just wondering…

For a base you need Vaseline, for shine you need clear shiny lip gloss, for scent a yum smelling lip gloss or some flavour, and for colour you need a lipstick, eyeshadow or blush or coloured lip gloss. Mix any of these with the base and you’re done!
