IntroductionThis is one of my favorites, not too waxy, not too glossy, you get the picture. Need I say more? =)
28 grams Coconut Oil
(I really like to use the Aloe Butter since it is infused into coconut, you get the added bonus of two in one.)
14 grams Mango Oil
14 grams Mango Butter
28 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
10 grams Carnauba Wax
1.5 ml Cream Soda Flavor Oil
1.5 ml Root Beer Flavor Oil
InstructionsWeigh and measure all fixed oil ingredients into a single microwave safe
container. Melt all ingredients. If you choose to use the microwave
keep an eye on it, things get HOT, very quickly in the microwave. I
recommend using short time settings and checking every 10 seconds or so.
This mixture can change from a solid state to a liquid state very
quickly. Like chocolate it may retain its shape and a little stirring
may change it to a completely melted mixture.
Once all your ingredients are melted you can add your flavor oils and
any desired color. Using a pipette carefully transfer your lip gloss
into your containers. Quick cool the filled containers by placing them
in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. Quick cooling is a great way to
prevent any of your oils from fractionating. Label and give away!
YieldWill make approximately 17 tubes or eleven 1/4 oz jars.
