Enjoy a Soothing Maple Lip Gloss

Texas winters can be pretty wild. It’s either dry and cold, or weirdly hot and humid. Either way, the heat or air conditioning does a number on my lips.
Protect your lips with this soothing lip gloss, easy to make right in your kitchen! With an ingredient that is a must for any fall and winter recipes, the gloss’s taste and scent will give you those cuddly cold-weather vibes!
Share this recipe with friends, or make a few as some sweet gifts for special occasions.

Maple Lip Gloss

  • 1 teaspoon grated cocoa butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated beeswax (you can source this from industrious neighbors or the local farmer’s market)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon walnut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil 

 

Directions:

  1. Combine the butter, beeswax, and oils. Gently heat until melted (stovetop or microwave is fine, just use caution with hot oils!).
  2. Once melted, add the maple syrup and vitamin E oil. Stir well.
  3. Pour into a small, clean container with a lid (sterilized baby food containers work wonderfully).
  4. Apply this light lip gloss alone, or over your favorite colors.
  5. The oils can last anywhere from six months to a year. Keep them cool and in sterilized containers.
