Beeswax Lipgloss

Ingredients for Lip Gloss Base:
1 oz white beeswax
2 Tbsp sweet almond oil
10 drops jojoba oil
1 250 IUs Vitamin E capsule
5 drops carrot oil (I can't find this where I live, so I just leave it out.)

Lip Gloss Essential Oils you can choose from:
Geranium                      Palma rosa
Lavendar                      Lemon
Rose                            Chamomile German

Melt the beeswax, then add the almond oil, stirring constantly. Add jojoba oil, carrot oil and Vitamin E. Stir again. Finally, mix 10 drops of your chosen essential oils taken from the list above.

I had some nasty cold sores the other day, so instead of using the Lip Gloss Essential Oils listed above, I used the following:
8 drops Geranium
3 drops Lemon
6 drops Chamomile German
8 drops Tea Tree
5 drops Lavendar

Mix those together and add 20 drops to the Lip Gloss Base. The cold sores were healed up in just two days. Amazing stuff!

Recipe found on pg. 136 of  "The Complete Book of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy" by Valerie Ann Worwood.
