Halloween Lip Gloss Recipe: History of Halloween Colors

Halloween is a fun tradition that is just full of orange pumpkins, black cats, spooky costumes, and trick-or-treating. But, have you ever thought to question how these Halloween traditions came to be a part of our tradition? Well this holiday came from the ancient festival of Samhain, which is an ancient Celtic tradition that took place on November first. During this celebration the Celtic people would light bonfires and use costumes to ward off ghosts. Later, Pope Gregory III used this same day to honor the saints and incorporated some of these Celtic traditions. Eventually, the night before, or Hallows Eve, is known to be the night of spirits and trickery.

Halloween Lip Gloss Recipe: Creating a Double Boiler

If you know how to create your double boiler, then you can move on to the next tape in this process. However, anyone that needs to learn a bit about this process can follow these easy steps. First, you will need to take a medium sized pot and add about an inch or two of water. Now, you will need to boil the water. Once the water is boiling, you will need to place a smaller pot into the water of the medium pot. Make sure that the water in the medium pot won’t overflow into the smaller pot. This water could potentially ruin the ingredients, as the inner pot will hold the ingredients and allow you to heat your cosmetic ingredients without scorching. So, you are now ready to create this lovely lip gloss recipe!

Halloween Lip Gloss Recipe: Melt Cosmetic Wax and OilsHalloween Lip Gloss Recipe: Melt Cosmetic Wax and Oils

First, you are going to need to prepare your first few nourishing lip care ingredients. So, retrieve your craft scale and measure out the cosmetic oils and cosmetic grade beeswax. You will need to measure out a half ounce of beeswax. The beeswax helps to hold the cosmetic recipe together and provide a bit of integrity to the lip care product. So, your finished lip gloss will remain in solid form with all of the silky, moisturizing oils.

Two of the cosmetic oils that you will need are the pumpkin seed oil and the jojoba oil, So, you will need three ounces of the pumpkin seed oil. This cosmetic oil is perfect for providing a glossy sheen and nourishing your lips. If you want to learn more about this nourishing ingredient, then you may want to check out our previous blog on Pumpkin Seed Oil Benefits! This blog goes more in depth about the benefits of this oil for the body. Also, you will need to use one ounce of the jojoba oil, which is a fantastic for nourishing and caring for your lips. Now, you are going to need to melt the beeswax. So, add these three ingredients to your double boiler. Make sure that you mix these ingredients occasionally to prevent scotching. Once these cosmetic ingredients have completely melted you can remove the mixture from heat.

Next, you will be ready to add a few more cosmetic ingredients to this mixture. Since the white beeswax pastilles are completely melted, you are ready to add these next two ingredients for this recipe.  So, you will be able to add in one gram of the activated charcoal cosmetic herb. This cosmetic herb is what gives this lip gloss its color. Further, activated charcoal is a fantastic and is often used to detoxify and cleanse your body naturally.

Not only does this cosmetic oil nourish the skin, but it will help to protect the skin from environmental factors. So, this cosmetic oil can be useful for providing some protection to your lips from the UV rays of the sun.

So, this fantastic flavor oil is perfect for creating delicious lip balm recipes. After you incorporate this yummy flavor oil into your melted lip gloss mixture, you can move on to the last step.

Halloween Lip Gloss Recipe: Packaging the Lip BalmHalloween Lip Gloss Recipe: Packaging the Lip Balm

Finally, you are ready to package your cosmetic recipe. So, you are going to need to gather your containers and packaging supplies. You will need about eight lip balm pots in total. First, you will want to remove each of the caps from your lip balm containers. Also, it will be helpful to line up the wholesale lip balm pots. Now, you can begin to fill each one of your clear jars with your finished lip balm mixture.

There are a few different ways that you can fill your lip balm pots. One method that you can use to fill your wholesale lip balm pots is scooping the mixture into the lip balm pots. So, you can use a spoon to fill each of the lip balm containers. A different method that you can use to fill these lip balm pots is the disposable pipettes. Try to move quickly, as you will need to package all of your lip balm before it solidifies in the bowl. This is especially important for those using the disposable pipette method as the pipette can get clogged.

Lip Balm Supplies

If you are looking to create some homemade lip balm, then you will want to check out the lip balm supplies that are available at Natures Garden. Whether you want to use a lip balm base or create homemade lip balm from scratch, we have everything that you will need to make some fantastic lip care products. Further, there are all kinds of different ways to flavor, sweeten, and color your various lip balm recipes. So, you can use these cosmetic supplies to create fantastic lip balm recipes that both look and feel amazing.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm From ScratchLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm From Scratch

One way that you can create your own lip balm is from scratch. This means starting with the simplest ingredients to completely form the lip balm that you want. While you will have to either find a previously formulated recipe or create your own lip balm recipe, it is worth the effort to make a lip care recipe that is exactly what you need. You can either use one of our step-by-step recipes or you can create one of your very own. Further, you could even start with one of our recipes and change out some of the oils for ones that your prefer. Then, you will need to use a double boiler to melt your various oils and butters. After, all your cosmetic oils and butters are melted you can add in your choice of lip balm flavors and lip tint before you pour the mix into the lip balm tubes. So, you are able to create a recipe that is exactly what you need from the texture and hydration level to the color and flavor.

Lip Balm Supplies: Butters and Carrier Oils

If you are making your lip balm from scratch, then you will need to incorporate some Natural Butters and Natural Fixed Oils into your recipe. These cosmetic ingredients are essential for hydrating and rejuvenating your lips. Plus, you can add more to create a highly moisturizing lip balm or less to create a daily lip balm. One recipe that we have created from scratch is the Kahlua and Cream Lip Balm Recipe, which uses skin nourishing butters and oils that will protect your lips. The Coconut Oil is an oil that is smooth and sinks into the skin. Also, the Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter are butters can will help protect your lips for even longer.

Lip Balm Supplies: Hard Cosmetic Wax

Not only do you want cosmetic ingredients that will rejuvenate your lips, but you will need an ingredient that will help hold your lip balm ingredients together. If you don’t add a cosmetic wax to your recipe, it will likely be too soft. So, you will absolutely need a cosmetic wax if you are going to use a lip balm tube. The Beeswax White Pastilles is used most commonly and is useful for adding some integrity to your lip balm. This is the cosmetic wax that is added to our lip balm base recipe. Another option that you can choose is Candelilla Wax, which is a perfect wax for anyone avoiding animal products. So, this was the perfect cosmetic wax to add to our Vegan Lip Butter Recipe or to use when formulating your own vegan lip balm.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm BaseLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Base

One convenient cosmetic ingredient that you can use with your homemade lip balm supplies is the wholesale lip balm base. Although you are still able to customize your lip balm, you can start with an easy to use lip balm base to make the process easier. So, you can simply melt the base in the microwave using short intervals. Then, you can add your colorants and lip balm flavorings. Using this amazing lip balm base, you don’t have to create a recipe from scratch, but you can still customize your product. So, you can easily create some fantastic homemade lip care that looks and tastes exactly how you want.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip TintsLip Balm Supplies: Lip Tints

Also, you may want to add a lip tint to your lip balm creation. First, you can add one of our lip tints. We used these lip balm colorants to create our Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe as well as our Lipstick from Scratch Recipe. So, you can use these colorants to create a fun design or to add a bit of color to your lips. Additionally, you can use some herbs to naturally color your lip balm recipes. We used some beet root powder to create our Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss Recipe. So, you can use some pigmented herbs and spices to create a natural color to your homemade recipes.

Lip Balm Supplies: Mica Dust PowderLip Balm Supplies: Mica Dust Powder

Additionally, you can use mica to enhance your lip balm recipes. This way you lips will have a little shimmer and shine! We included the Diamond Dust Mica in our Kiss of Death Lip Venom Recipe. Additionally, you can use the Gold Mica Pigment in some of your very own lip balm recipes. These are a perfect way to glam up your lip balm recipes without adding any lip tint. However, adding some sparkle and shine to your pigmented lip balm would be even prettier!

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm FlavoringsLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Flavorings

Another great addition that you can make to your lip balm recipes is flavoring. First, you can try out one of our many lip balm flavorings. We used the scrumptious Blue Raspberry Slushie flavor in our Natural Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe. Additionally, you can use some essential oils to create delicious lip balm flavors. For example, we used lavender essential oil to create our White Chocolate Lavender Lip Balm Recipe. However, you will need to check the IFRA sheet to ensure that your essential oil choice is safe to be used in lip balms. Further, we wouldn’t recommend using photosensitive essential oils. Also, you can use natural lip balm flavors, like chocolate or honey. We tried out these sweeteners in our Honey Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe and in our Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Recipe.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Sweeteners

Not only would you want to flavor your lip balm, but you may want to add a sweetener as well. There are a few sweeteners that you can add to your recipe to enhance the flavor. Although these ingredients won’t necessarily flavor your lip balm, it is perfect for sweetening the flavor you added. Also, you can use these ingredients to sweeten a plain or natural batch of lip balm. Regardless of how you want to flavor your lip balm, a sweetener is a perfect way to enhance it. So, check out the sweet options available in Natures Garden’s lip balm supplies.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm SweetenerLip Balm Supplies: Stevia

One way that you can sweeten your lip balm flavorings is with some powdered Stevia. We used this lip balm supply to create the Monkey Farts Lip Balm Recipe, which sweetens the scrumptious, tropical flavor of our Monkey Farts Flavoring. In this recipe we crushed the powder a bit more and then added a small amount to our lip balm. This helps to reduce the gritty texture that can occur by adding too much. But, you can use more of the Stevia if you would like to add some exfoliating power to your recipe.

Lip Balm Supplies: SorbitolLip Balm Supplies: Sorbitol

Additionally, you can try adding Sorbitol to your lip balm recipes. While there are many people that use and enjoy this sweetener in their lip balm recipes, we at Natures Garden prefer to use Stevia or a natural sweetener like chocolate. There are many that know exactly how to use this cosmetic ingredient, but it can be tricky to mix with the oils and butters. This complication is due to this sweetener being polar, which doesn’t mix with the non polar oils and butters. So, you will need an emulsifier and an understanding of cosmetic checmistry.

Lip Balm Supplies: SugarLip Balm Supplies: Sugar

Also, you can use real sugar to sweeten your lip balm recipes. Just know that adding sugar will likely make your lip balm gritty. So, you will only want to add sugar if you want to create a lip scrub. We used some white granulated sugar to create our Natural Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe. If you want to create a slightly softer sugar scrub, then you should try using brown sugar. We used this softer sugar in our Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe, which creates a nice lip exfoliator.

Lip Balm Supplies: Disposable PipetsLip Balm Supplies: Disposable Pipettes

Another lip balm supply that you are going to want to have for your recipes is a disposable pipette. With other bath and body recipes you can pour your recipe into the containers. However, many of the lip balm containers are too small for you to be accurate. So, you can use these pipettes to fill your packaging supplies. This prevents you from wasting the lip balm that would miss the containers. Plus, you have more control, which is important for clear lip balm pots. Otherwise, it would be impossible to make straight layers. So, these are a crucial supply for creating lip balm effectively.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm PackagingLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Packaging

After you have created your lip balm, you are going to need to be able to package it! We have all kinds of wholesale lip balm containers that you can use for your lip balm recipes. First, we have lip balm pots and tins. We have a few different kinds of sizes and shapes that you can choose from to create the perfect lip balm recipes. We have things like the 0.35 oz Lip Slider Tins, the 6ml and 10 ml lip balm jars, the tri cosmetic container, and so many more options!

Another choice that you have for your lip care recipes is lip balm tubes. You can try out the regular lip balm tubes or a small deodorant stick. While a deodorant stick may sound like it would be too big for lip balm, it is actually pretty small. In fact, this tube is about the same size as a regular lip balm tube. The only difference is that the travel size deodorant tube has a more oval shape. Further, we have roll on lip gloss tubes, which would be perfect to add to your lip gloss making supplies! Check out all the options you have available at Natures Garden on the Lip Balm Containers page of our website.

Lip Balm Supplies: Our Delicious Inspiration

We often are inspired by delicious foods to create some fantastic homemade recipes. One of these inspired recipes is our yummy Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Recipe. Of course, we had to create a lip balm recipe after having some scrumptious homemade strawberry cheesecake. It is almost impossible to resist something that is this good!  If you want a piece of the real thing, then you should try out this Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake recipe from Your Home Based Mom. This recipes uses fresh, juicy strawberries with sweet glaze on a creamy cheesecake that is all sitting on a graham cracker crust.

VITAMIN E OIL (Tocopherol T-50) Natural
Flavoring- Strawberry Sorbet

Disposable Pipettes

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Other Equipment You Will Need

Scale
Mixing Bowl
Mixing Spoon
Pots (2 for double boiler)
Microwave

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Cocoa Butter Golden Natural

This particular cocoa butter is not deodorized; meaning that it has a chocolate-like aroma.  Cocoa butter is a very hard, saturated fat. It is considered a luxury butter that is used in lotions, lip balms, lip gloss, scrubs, massage bars, soaps, and other bath and body products.

 

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  White Beeswax

Wax extracted from the honeycomb of a bee hive, and filtered.   No chemicals used to bleach this beeswax; it was naturally bleached by exposure to sunlight and air.  Beeswax is used in candle making, cosmetics, and toiletries.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Coconut Oil 76

Coconut oil is one of the primary oils soapmakers use in their soaps.  However, it is also very popular in lip balm.  There are many types of coconut oil.  Most of the coconut oil sold and used is a melt point of 76 degrees, but there is a hydrogenated type that melts at 92 degrees.

Shea ButterChocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Shea Butter

Shea butter is moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.  When used in soap making, shea butter will add a wonderful creamy lather, great conditioning properties, and some hardness to your soap. Shea butter is used in lip balms, lip gloss, soaps, lotions, scrubs, and other bath and body products.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Vitamin E Oil

(Tocopherol T-50)-  The purest form of natural vitamin E available (from plant sources only). This is not tocopherol acetate (the form found in many vitamin E capsules).  Vitamin E is required in most cosmetic formulations in very small amounts  in order to prevent oils from oxidizing.  When fixed oils oxidize, they develop a very rancid smell, and can turn your products brown in color, which will ruin your finished products.  Prevent this from occurring by adding vitamin E to your formulations.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Strawberry Sorbet Flavor Oil

The sweet delicious aroma of strawberry sorbet.  Not only does it smell like the real thing, it also tastes like the real thing.  For use in lip balms, massage oils, body sprays, perfumes, bath and body products, and pet bath products.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe:  Dark Chocolate Wafers

Dark chocolate wafers can be used in a variety of bath and body products.  You can use it, of course, in lip balm.  However, it can also be used in products like massage bars.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Total Recipe Weights and Amounts

26 grams White Beeswax
48 grams Coconut Oil 76
20 grams Shea Butter
24 grams Cocoa Butter-Golden Natural
2 grams Vitamin E Oil
20 drops Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring Oil
3 Dark Chocolate Wafers
5 drops Red Hot Momma Lip Tint

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Creating a Double Boiler

Now, it is very important that you melt your oils slowly.  To do this, you need to melt them in a double boiler.  This will keep them from getting over cooked from the direct heat.  So, you will need to place a few inches of water in a pot on medium heat.  Once you weigh out your oils, you will place them in a smaller pot.  Your smaller pot will then be placed inside your larger pot.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Preparing Your Lip Balm Pots

In addition to creating a double boiler prior to starting, you also want to have your lip balm pots prepared.  Clean and sanitize your lip balm pots and place them out in front of you.  Set the lids aside, for now.  When creating this recipe, you will need a total of 10 pots.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Prepare the Strawberry Lip Balm

First we will prepare the strawberry lip balm.  This will be the bottom layer of your chocolate covered strawberries lip balm.  We will add flavor oil as well as color to this layer.  It will be flavored with Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring from Nature’s Garden.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Recipe Weights for the Strawberry Layer

13 grams White Beeswax
24 grams Coconut Oil 76
10 grams Shea Butter
12 grams Cocoa Butter-Golden Natural
1 gram Vitamin E Oil
20 drops Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring Oil
5 drops Red Hot Momma Lip Tint

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Weighing the Ingredients for the Strawberry Layer

First, we will be weighing the ingredients for the strawberry layer.  So, in a small pot, weigh out 13 grams of the white beeswax, 24 grams of your coconut oil 76,10 grams of your shea butter, and 12 grams of the golden natural cocoa butter.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Melting the Ingredients for the Strawberry Layer

Then, use the double boiler you created to melt the oil, wax, and butters.  You want to stir the contents of the pot occasionally so that they do not overheat.  Since it is a small amount, the ingredients should melt pretty quickly.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Adding the Color and Flavor Oil

Once everything is melted, we will be adding the color and flavor oil.  So, we will need our Natures Garden Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring along with our Red Hot Momma Lip Tint.  We will also be adding the vitamin E oil.  Next, add 20 drops of the Strawberry Sorbet Flavor Oil and 5 drops of the Red Hot Momma.  Then, add 1 gram of your natural vitamin e oil.  Finally, stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Putting the Strawberry Lip Balm into the Jars

When putting the strawberry lip balm into the jars, we will only be filling them about halfway.  This recipe will create about 10 of the 10 ml lip balm containers.  So, use a disposable pipette to fill half of the 10 ml lip balm container.  Allow the strawberry layer of your lip balm to setup before moving to the next step.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Prepare the Chocolate Lip Balm

Next, we will prepare the chocolate lip balm layer.  This layer will be poured directly on top of the strawberry lip balm layer.  This layer however, will be flavored with real chocolate instead of a lip balm flavoring.

 

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Recipe Weights for the Chocolate Layer

13 grams White Beeswax
24 grams Coconut Oil 76
10 grams Shea Butter
12 grams Cocoa Butter-Golden Natural
1 gram Vitamin E Oil

3 Dark Chocolate Wafers

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Weighing the Ingredients for the Chocolate Layer

First, we will need to weigh out a few of our ingredients.  So, in a small bowl weigh out 13 grams of your white beeswax, 24 grams of your coconut oil 76, 10 grams of the shea butter, and finally, 12 grams of the golden natural cocoa butter.The remaining ingredients will be added after the oils, butters, and waxes are melted.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Melting the Ingredients for the Chocolate Layer

Next, you will, once again, use a double boiler to melt the ingredients.  So, fill your larger pan with a few inches of water.  Then, place your weighed out ingredients into a smaller pot.  Finally, place your smaller pot inside your larger pot and begin melting your ingredients.  You will want to stir occasionally until all of your oils, butters, and waxes are melted.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Adding the Chocolate

Now, you will be adding the chocolate.  So, to the pot containing your oils and butters, add the three dark chocolate wafers.  Then, slowly mix them into your melted lip balm.  This will give your lip balm both a chocolate taste and aroma.  In addition, add 1 gram of Vitamin E Oil and stir.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Putting the Chocolate Lip Balm into the Jars

Next, use a disposable pipette to fill the remaining portion of the lip balm container.  You do not want to fill the lip balm container completely.  Since the lid indents slightly, you want to make sure you allow for that.  Once you have filled your container with the chocolate lip balm, allow it to setup.  When your lip balm has set up, place a lid on top.

Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe: Using Your Lip Balm

Once your lip balm has setup, it is ready to use right away.  Your lip balm will begin with the chocolate lip balm.  Once you have used the top layer, you will then make your way to the strawberry lip balm.

In addition, why not make your own chocolate covered strawberries.  Chocolate covered strawberries are one of my favorite treats.  Here is a recipe for chocolate dipped strawberries from Betty Crocker.  They look amazing!  I might just be making these this weekend!
