Soothing Summer DIY Lip Gloss Tutorial
Ingredients For Clear Lip Gloss
- Liquid Coconut Oil
- Spearmint Essential Oil (Young Living)
- Lavender Essential Oil (Young Living)
- Vitamin E Oil
The all natural ingredients used in this DIY lip gloss are excellent for soothing dry lips. The main oils used in this recipe are Coconut oil and Vitamin E oil, both of which have numerous benefits for lip care.
Liquid coconut oil is a clear and affordable base oil that is great for hydrating the skin, including the lips. According to Honest Company, coconut oil can help heal and maintain softness in the lips. If you prefer, you can substitute olive oil, grapeseed oil, sweet almond oil, or jojoba oil as the carrier oil in this homemade lip gloss recipe.
Vitamin E oil has been included in this recipe because it is also beneficial for maintaining the health and appearance of the lips. As Healthline explains, Vitamin E boosts circulation and helps generate new skin cells, resulting in softer lips.
The essential oils selected for this roll-on lip gloss were chosen for their pleasant scent and their antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Remember that essential oils are highly concentrated and should always be diluted with a carrier oil before use.
*Please note that I am a Young Living distributor, and I recommend using Young Living essential oils because they are high quality and therapeutic grade.
A 10 ml Glass Rollerball Bottle is the perfect container for storing and applying this all natural lip gloss recipe. The roll-on application makes it easy to apply the lip oil evenly. Ready to try making your own lip gloss? Just follow the step-by-step instructions below.
How To Make Natural Lip Gloss
Making lip gloss is a fun and simple process! There are only a few steps to follow. Get all your supplies ready and find a clear workspace, like your kitchen counter.
Start by removing the lid and rollerball from the bottle. Then, add 3 drops of Spearmint Essential Oil and 3 drops of Lavender Essential Oil.
Once you’ve added the essential oils, include 8 drops of Vitamin E oil. Vitamin E is highly beneficial for lips and skin as it helps protect against damage from UV rays and acts as a powerful antioxidant.
Fill the rest of the bottle with liquid coconut oil. This ingredient offers various benefits, including reducing inflammation, moisturizing the skin, and promoting wound healing. Be sure to leave some space at the top of the bottle so you can safely insert the rollerball without any spillage.
Put the rollerball top back on the bottle. Give it a gentle shake, and your Soothing Summer DIY Roll-On Lip Gloss is ready to use. However, if you have never used essential oils before, it’s a good idea to test a small amount on a less visible spot of skin to check for any allergies or sensitivities to the oils.
