Ingredients
  • 4 tbsp almond oil
  • 4 tbsp jojoba oil
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp beeswax
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp coloured lipstick (for natural tints, see notes)
  • 1/4 tsp vitamin E oil
  • 7 drops lavender essential oil
Directions
  1. Melt the jojoba oil, almond oil, olive oil and beeswax in a pan on low heat.

  2. Add the cocoa powder and coloured lipstick gradually into the mixture, stir thoroughly. Make sure the mixture is smooth without crumbs.

  3. Remove from heat. Add vitamin E oil and lavender essential oil to the mixture.

  4. Allow the content to cool down for 5 minutes, then slowly whisk in honey.

  5. Pour the content into a mould (or a lipstick container), let cool down and set for at least 24 hours before use.

Notes

Instead of using coloured lipstick, melt 1 tsp of shea butter and beetroot powder (adjust the amount of beetroot powder according to the shade) for an organic tint.
