Honey Elixir Lip Gloss 6


Finished Honey Elixir Lip Gloss

Finished Honey Elixir Lip Gloss

There is something delectable and enticing about sun warmed honey. One of my favorite ways to eat honey is atop a sweet, oven fresh cornbread and creamed butter. If the honey drips off the corn bread, not to worry, licking the honey off your fingertips is half the fun! (If you want the recipe I use, check out the cornbread recipe Dirk shared a while back!)

Weighing Beeswax

Weighing Beeswax

Weigh everything except for the Honey Flavor Oil, Squalane and extracts into a microwave safe container. Heat in short bursts until everything has melted and is crystal clear. At this point you can add the flavor oil and additives. If you want to add any color or mica this would be the time. Stir well making sure that everything is incorporated.

Using a pipette, dispense into the lip balm pens. Allow to cool and solidify just a little before inserting the brush or doe foot tip. Push until you hear a snap. Place the cap on top. Label and enjoy!

I’m constantly asking “Why?” My curiosity has me trying new things. I love taking walks with my dog as well as staying at home to cuddle with the dog and my cats. Some of my favorite scents include Hinoki Wood, Rose Garden, Jasmine and Gladiator.

    OMG…….I just got my order and inside was a Honey Elixir Lip Balm Pen. Scrumptious, just absolutely scrumptious. Thank you so much. Now I have to make some too.

    Wow, I just got my order and it had one of these in it also! Love that honey FO!! I’m a big fan of mint in my lip gloss…but this almost makes me want to switch! I love the brush also, may have to invest in some of them. Thanks for the sample and recipe! I am wondering though, if unrefined shea butter would work, as I’ve not gotten any of this yet. :-)) (so far I’ ve not had the graininess issue. )
