Here is the recipe all in one easy to copy place:
Pink Tinted Lip Balm
2 TBSP grated beeswax
2 TBSP coconut oil
2 tsp. sweet almond oil
chunk of red lipstick
1/2 tsp. of shimmery eye shadow powder
10 drops of essentail oil (I used peppermint but you can use any kind)
Melt all but essentail oil in a doubleboiler until completely melted and there are no more beewax flakes.
Do not boil or overheat. Stir with a throw away tool like a bamboo skewer.
Remove from heat and add essential oil. Using a syringe or medicne dropper fill your lip balm containers.
Let it sit at room temperature or in the fridge until hardened or opaque.
Be sure to stop by and check out her fabulous projects (like the Lil’ Mister Bow Tie– Burke wore one on Easter and the other night a made a couple more for his birthday party), her drool worthy recipes (did you see the crepe cake? Umm, yes please!) and her fantastic parties (love the lego theme!).
And, since we’re swapping blogs for PINK… come say hi (and check out Piper Jane’s Half-and-Half skirt) over at Delia Creates.
If you pour boiling water over your grater after use you can still use it as your everyday kitchen grater. I had used the same kitchen grater for beeswax, cheese, chocolate, carrots, zucchini, etc for well over 10 years now and had no issues. I've been doing this for 20 years but my original grater (a 50 year old grater) was crushed by the packers on one of our moves (they put it in with a box of dumb bells!)
Enjoy your lip balm!!

This would be really fun to make with my girls this summer! Have to research where I can find some beeswax!
Well,you could have beeswax pellets online or substitute it with candadilla wax
this is TOO cool, Delia! I love the idea of making your own and getting the color you want! wow, so creative!

Wow, great tutorial! Seems pretty easy too. I can never seem to get enough lip gloss, especially in the summer. Thanks!!
Awesome tutorial! I'm so excited and totally want to go make me some lip gloss now!!
Cute post!! I want to try out the lip gloss tutorial….I am obsessed with it!
Ha ha…you are so sweet Kirstin. Thank you. 🙂 It has been so fun working on this series with you. I can't believe we really are half way done.
Also, question: How many little pots does this recipe make? Did it really make all four?
And another comment: I'm glad that you're "cheap." It's one of the main reasons I love your blog! 🙂

Love this! Thanks for the extra tips, answered a couple questions I was having.
I love this! I totally want to make some for myself and my friends… and it's great for a little girl too, so she can be like mommy, just without the tint maybe?

Love the recipe! I make lip balms but have not tried tinted gloss. Be careful though putting essential oils on your lips. They can damage or burn the sensitive skin on your lips depending on the type you use. I will be sure to try your recipe! 🙂
Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [23 May 02:15am GMT]. Thanks, Maria
This is great ! You should use less essential oil though you should use 2-4 drops because its not diluted enough when you use 10 its still gives the same smell an effect
I just tried the recipe. Everything went well but I tried to use gel food coloring for color and it didn’t mix. I should have realized it wouldn’t mix with oil/wax mixture. I didn’t have any lipstick. It’s yellow like beeswax but it’s also peppermint/lemon flavor! I used DoTerra Essential Oils because they are one of the only essential oils that can be used internally. Thank you so much for the tutorial.
Love it that you tried it. 🙂 Isn’t Delia great?
