Real Vanilla Extract - Homemade Vanilla Lip Gloss Craft Project
Vanilla Lip Gloss And this is the last recipe today from our old newsletters. :) Hope you enjoy this - it's one of my personal favorites. You can use UN-petroleum jelly from the health food store instead of the petroleum jelly if you prefer. (Readers have suggested this and I thought I'd pass the idea on...)
This lip gloss is great for any vanilla lover! It's soothing,andwill help soften chapped lips and is so much fun to make! (And a lot cheaper than buying it at the store!)
Ingredients 1 1/2 Tablespoon Petroleum Jelly 1 Tablespoon Aloe Vera Gel 1 teaspoons sweet almond oil 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla double boiler or microwave
You can double, triple, or quadruple this recipe! Or, even make 10 or 12 recipes all at once. (If you're giving this as gifts it is easier to make a big batch and bottle it all up at once.)
Heat this gently over a double boiler for a few minutes, until wellcombined and warmed through. Or, put in a microwave-safe plastic or glass dish and heat on low heat for a minute, stir, and heat for another 20 seconds and stir again. If you're just doing a single recipe, this is all you'll need to heat the mixture before bottling.If you're making large quantities, microwave for a little longer.Spoon or pour the vanilla lip gloss mixture into tiny glass or plastic containers and store in the fridge to harden slightly.
