DIY natural lipgloss with therapeutic grade essential oils

This week, Doterra has published this amazing recipe for DIY beauty!

You can choose any therapeutic grade essential oil to accompany this, however peppermint, rose and lavender are great for soothing dry or chapped lips.

You can purchase Doterra pure, therapeutic grade essential oils from The Digital Panacea here.

Ingredients
1 gram white beeswax
3 grams shea butter (you could also use virgin coconut oil)
2 grams jojoba oil (you could also use grapeseed, Fractionated Coconut Oil, or almond oil)
10 grams castor oil
1 gram vitamin E
7 drops of your favorite essential oil
Pigment, such as organic beet root powder or mineral makeup

Note: this is enough to fill two standard lip gloss tubes. You can find empty lip gloss tubes online and at local beauty stores.

How it works:
1. Place all ingredients, except for essential oil, into a glass jar.
