Process to make Lip Gloss
The process is as easy as you can imagine. Add 1 cup of petroleum jelly and half ounce beeswax in a container. For this, I would suggest you use a clean, sterile container for mixing and storage. Heat the base, beeswax or petroleum jelly, in a microwave. Heat in 10-second intervals. 30 seconds would melt the mixture. Do not overheat.
Add capsules of vitamin E. Prick the capsule to expel the liquid from it. Add the liquid to the base. This will prevent the gloss from causing allergies as well.
Now add the lip color and flavor of your choice. If you are using cranberries, boil and crush them first to extract the juice. On the other hand, if you are using vanilla or honey or chocolate cream, then directly add it in the mixing jar. Blend it completely so that a smooth gloss is ready.
Now, put the mixture in tiny jars and aloe them to be cooled. Here is your perfect lip gloss ready. You can use it all you want and relish it. Since you have made it by your home, its effects and flavor will be all the more exciting to you!
