Make Your Own Lip Balm and Lip Gloss

1. Basic Fun Lip Gloss Ingredients

1) Basic Fun Lip Gloss Ingredients:

  • Paraffin wax
  • Coconut oil
  • Petroleum jelly
  • Candy melts (to colour the gloss and make it taste sweet)
  • Oil-based candy flavouring (if you want a special flavour)
  • Grater
  • Wax paper
  • Ziploc bag


Small container (recycle old lip gloss/balm containers or other makeup containers, even 35mm film containers work quite well. Other places to look include stores that carry beads, crafts, or fishing tackle supplies.

How to:


  1. Grate a bit of paraffin wax onto wax paper.
  2. Put ¼ teaspoon grated wax into the plastic bag.
  3. Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly, and 1 candy melt to colour the gloss and make it sweet.
  4. Add ⅛ teaspoon oil-based candy flavouring if you like.
  5. Seal the bag and put it in a bowl of hot tap water to melt the ingredients, for approximately 3-5 minutes.

(Use tap water! Please never use a microwave or kettle to heat the water)

When all the ingredients are melted, take the bag out of the water. Move the ingredients around in bag to mix. Make sure you work quickly. Clip off a tiny corner of the bag and squeeze gloss into the clean container. Let it set for an hour. If you can’t wait that long, just put this in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Use a cotton swab to apply the lip-gloss to your lips to help it last longer. Your lip-gloss should last a long time.
