Women around the world apply toxic, synthetic ingredients to their face, including around their mucous-membrane (eyes and mouths) daily. The chemicals are blinked into eyes, seeped into pores, and accidentally licked into mouths, accumulating over a woman’s lifespan.

Hence, the reason for my DIY lipstick recipe.

My DIY lipstick recipe is nothing more complicated than a jazzed up lip balm.


2 teaspoons sweet almond oil or coconut oil

1 teaspoon beeswax / beeswax beads

1 teaspoon cocoa or shea butter

1-2 drops of any essential oils

lip balm tubes or tins


Optional Colouring Ingredients:

1/8 – ¼ teaspoon beetroot powder

1/8 – ¼ cacao powder

1/8 – ¼ teaspoon cinnamon powder

1/8 – ¼ maca powder

1/8 – ¼ spirulina powder

1/8 – ¼ teaspoon turmeric



Set a glass measuring cup or a jar into a sauce pan with 2-3cm of water in it to create a double boiler.

Melt the wax, oil and shea butter in the jar over medium heat.

Stir in optional colouring.

Finally, remove from heat and quickly stir in a drop or two of essential oil for fragrance and nourishment, like cinnamon, peppermint, lavender, or lemongrass.

Pour into lip balm tins or sticks.

Let cool. Enjoy!



Citrus oils are phototoxic (can cause excessive burning when exposed to the sun) to varying degrees. If you choose to 
use citrus in your lipstick, be sure to only use 1 drop.
