Fair Friday- DIY Lipstick

DIY Lipstick

Have you ever looked at the ingredient list of your blush, lipstick or other make-up?  Every product seems to have a rather long list of chemicals. When I started on my journey to eat more healthy, I also started to change what I used on my body.

This recipe for lipstick is basically a lip balm. Try it and see how easy it is to make.

2 teaspoons sweet almond oil
1 teaspoon beeswax beads
1 teaspoon coco butter
1/4 teaspoon beet powder (can also use cinnamon or turmeric)
pinch of white mica powder
3 drops of lavender essential oil
3 drops of rose hip oil

Put the coco butter and beeswax into a glass jar. Melt over a water bath.  Remove from the heat and put in the beet powder and mica powder.  Pour into a lip balm container.
