Lava lamp lip gloss is fun, nourishing to your lips, and it makes them oh so soft! I love this recipe because not only is it a fun gift the ingredients are all natural!

My daughter and I like to make homemade Christmas gifts, this is one of the gifts we gave out last year. BTW it would also make a great Valentine’s Day gift!

RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Castor Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Glycerin
  • Pigment 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon mica or eye shadow (do not use glitter, as you don’t want anyone  to ingest it. Most kids will lick it off their lips)
  • 2 drops of essential oil… I used “Skin So Soft” by Plant Therapy its kid Safe
  • Clear glass rollerball bottles

Directions

  1. Mix the glycerin, mica and essential oil together until there are no lumps
  2. Put it in the glass lip gloss bottle, and fill the rest of the bottle with castor oil leaving about ¼ inch to accommodate the roller ball.

    I know someone else mentioned using almond oil instead of castor, I wonder if there are any other oils that can be used instead too.. this looks so fun and we are home all the time and need more DIY fun projects, we can’t get enough of them haha.

    1. Yes I’m sure there are other oils that can be used! Please let me know if you experiment!

    does the essential oil play as flavoring ?

    1. Yes Ashley, Thank you for commenting… The essential oil does add flavor and scent, I mainly added it for the wonderful healing & nourishing properties!

    We made this and my 3 daughters had a blast. We did a red, pink and a coral pink. My girls are crazy about makeup, I bet they will be putting it on as early as possible when they get in their teens haha.

    1. Thank you for commenting! I love that your daughters had a blast making it, those colors they picked sound lovely <3

    Oh my gosh it really does look just like a lava lamp. I love lip gloss too haha, perfect.

    I wonder if you could make an etsy business out of this. I’ve been wanting to make some sort of product to sell on there, they have the most interesting thing.

    1. I have not sold on etsy myself. I do wish you much success in whatever you try to create and sell 🙂
