It takes approx. 2 minutes to read this article

Do you pay attention to the composition of your cosmetics and buy only all-natural products? You will be 100% sure of the ingredients especially if you make your favorite cosmetic yourself

You will need:

– a small jar or packaging from used lipstick (twist-off)

– coconut oil, cocoa butter/shea butter and cosmetic beeswax

– honey

– sweet almond, avocado or jojoba oil

– bentonite cosmetic clay (you can also use it as the base of a face mask or toothpaste)

– essential oils of your favorite scents

– red food colouring (one drop is enough per lipstick), beet or cocoa powder, turmeric

In a water bath (place a small glass container such as a jar in a pot of hot water), melt one teaspoon each of coconut oil, cocoa or shea butter and beeswax. These have a low melting point, about 65 degrees Celsius, so the water does not need to boil.


To get the desired color, add a drop of food coloring. Use a pinch (1/8 teaspoon) of beet powder, cocoa powder or turmeric to choose your favorite shade of red.

Make your lipstick shine by adding honey, almond, avocado or jojoba oils. If you add a bit of bentonite clay, the lipstick will fade.

A drop of the essential oil of your choice will give your lipstick a pleasant aroma. Remember that most essential oils have an antibacterial effect, so they will give your lipstick additional properties.

Slowly place the concoction thus prepared in a lipstick container or jar and let it set.
