Fresh Spearmint Lip Gloss Recipe
Makes 1/2 ounce
Spearmint makes this gloss feel refreshing and soothing on your lips. Also try using other mints, such as orange, pineapple, cinnamon or chocolate mint. If you don’t have fresh mint on hand, substitute dried mint until fresh leaves are available.
• 1 teaspoon fresh mint leaves OR ½ teaspoon dried leaves
• 2 teaspoons almond oil
• 1 teaspoon grated beeswax
Place mint in a container; gently bruise leaves to release essential oils. Pour oil over leaves and let sit for a few days. Strain oil, then add it to beeswax. On a stove or in a microwave, gently heat mixture until wax melts. Stir well and pour into a small, clean container.
Ooh this sounds good. We made some lip balm back in September and some of it worked well. This sounds lovely though.
