Fresh Spearmint Lip Gloss Recipe

Makes 1/2 ounce

Spearmint makes this gloss feel refreshing and soothing on your lips. Also try using other mints, such as orange, pineapple, cinnamon or chocolate mint.   If you don’t have fresh mint on hand, substitute dried mint until fresh leaves are available.   

• 1 teaspoon fresh mint leaves OR ½ teaspoon dried leaves
• 2 teaspoons almond oil
• 1 teaspoon grated beeswax

Place mint in a container; gently bruise leaves to release essential oils. Pour oil over leaves and let sit for a few days.  Strain oil, then add it to beeswax. On a stove or in a microwave, gently heat mixture until wax melts. Stir well and pour into a small, clean container.
