Perfectly Imperfect - DIY EO Liquid Lipstick

Perfectly Imperfect - DIY EO Liquid Lipstick

In 1770, lipstick was banned in England as it was said to have the power to seduce men into marriage.Queen Elizabeth I even believed lipstick had the ability to ward off death. Though lipstick might not have magic powers, it does have the ability to beautify any puckered pout.

Since the Elizabethan era of cosmetics and makeup, lipstick formulation has evolved tremendously. What was once a mixture of mostly animal fats, herbs, waxes, and dyes is now a concoction of harmful chemicals and synthetics.

However, Edens Garden’s aromatherapists recently went back to the basics of lipstick making to bring you a completely natural alternative to your favorite lip colors. Here’s how to up your #LipGame-

What you need

1 oz Avocado carrier oil

1 oz Sweet Almond carrier oil

6 drops Lavender

6 drops Peppermint

2 tsp Shea butter

1 tsp Beeswax

½ tsp Cosmetic clay

2 tsp Lip safe mica powder

Lipgloss container

How to

Add Avocado, Sweet Almond, shea butter and beeswax to a double boiler. Sprinkle cosmetic clay and mica on top. Whisk thoroughly to combine. Remove from heat and add essential oils. Transfer the mixture to the containers and allow to cool before use. Voila! Your lips are ready to impress.

Hi Melissa! We recommend switching out Peppermint for an oil such as Sweet Orange, Mandarin, Clementine, or Tangerine.

Hi Maria! You add the colorant (mica powder) at this point in the directions- Add Avocado, Sweet Almond, shea butter and beeswax to a double boiler. Sprinkle cosmetic clay and mica on top.

Hi Lauri! Yes, a lipgloss bottle with a wand is perfect

Hi Michelle! For the most part, it remains in a liquid state but may firm up a bit because it contains beeswax

Does this firm up like a lip balm or remain liquid like a lip gloss?

The Shea Butter should be melted with the Almond, Avocado and Beeswax, correct?
