Melt beeswax in a double boiler on high until completely melted. When it’s completely melted, add coconut oil using a 2:1 ratio of coconut oil to beeswax (at least). I started out with 1/2 cup of beeswax and 1 cup of coconut oil.
Mix together until the beeswax and coconut oil are completely combined and have a thin, liquid consistency.
Using a dropper, grab some of the mix and squirt it out on a piece of wax paper. When it has cooled down, test the lip gloss on your lips and see if it’s smooth or still has a waxy consistency.
If the lip gloss is perfect, you’re almost done. Skip down a few steps.
If the lip gloss is waxy, you still have some work to do.
If you feel wax on your lips, add more coconut oil one tablespoon at a time until completely melted.
Test, mix, add, test.
When you’re completely satisfied with the texture, add a slice of lipstick (I used really cheap Wet n’ Wild .99 cent lip stick in a bright pink) and mix it in, until you’re satisfied with the color. The lip stick isn’t actually going to make the lip gloss pink on your lips, unless you add a ton, but it’s pretty and will make the lip gloss more aesthetically pleasing. So you should probably do it.
Now’s the time for your essential oil to shine. I added about 15 drops of peppermint essential oil per batch (at least), but it’s totally up to you. Make it as gloriously peppermint-y as you’d like.
Use the dropper to transfer the lip gloss from the pot to the containers, filling nearly to the top.
Repeat into separate jars until done, letting the lip gloss cool completely before screwing on lids.
Package and repeat.
This makes about 4-5 small containers of lip gloss.
