This lip gloss recipe is pretty much the most perfect recipe I have seen lately. It contains almond oil and Vitamin E. Why is this significant?

Almond oil is an emolient, like glycerin. It locks in the moisture and keeps it there, leaving the lips soft and hydrated.

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps the skin heal and remain healthy. These two are a great combination. Your lips will be protected from free radicals and nourished at the same time.



  • 1 tsp Honey
  • 1 T Vitamin E Oil
  • 1 tsp. of Aloe Vera
  • 2 tsp of grated beeswax
  • 1 T pure almond extract
  • 6 drops of Lemon essential oil


  • Melt beeswax, remove from heat and while constantly stirring
  • Add honey, Aloe Vera, Almond extract, Vitamin E.
  • Add the Lemon essential oil last.
