Berry good lip gloss!

Standard

This was recipe number two for the brownie group I worked with. We had a spa night this week where we made homemade spa ideas for Mother’s Day… I highly doubt all of the mom’s will actually see the lip gloss…the girls really seemed to like it.
There were five or six girls in each group. Each recipe makes enough lip gloss for about 5or 6 small containers.
You need the following ingredients:
2 tablespoons of beeswax (I grated my beeswax so it melted faster)
8 candy melt chocolates (the circles of coloured chocolate)
4 teaspoons of virgin coconut oil
4 teaspoons of liquid coconut oil (I just added this because I have tonnes of it…I accidentally ordered a gallon on-line….long story)
8 teaspoons of Vaseline
Several drops of berry candy flavouring

Start by adding the beeswax and candy melts to a shallow saucepan first because they take the longest to melt. It is fine to use one of your everyday saucepans, as there is nothing harmful, in fact, the only ingredient you can’t eat is the Vaseline.
Next, dump everything into the pot except for the candy flavouring.

The girls were not impressed with the way it looked at this stage.
But, keep the heat low, and it will look like this in a couple minutes.

Don’t forget to add the candy flavouring…and take a big sniff, it smells berry good!
Then, pour it into a shallow, small container. I used salad dressing containers, but you could also reuse old cosmetic containers, even lipstick tubes. I put the containers in the fridge to harden a little.

Finally, all that’s left to do is add a label. I used mailing labels, and I just cut them down a little.
