Be a natural beauty this spring/summer by whipping up these homemade beauty products
Island Lip GlossThis lip gloss is made from a cocktail of tropical beauty ingredients like macadamia nut, coconut oils, and cocoa butter. Macadamia nut oil is lighter than many other oils so it absorbs easily into lips, plus gives the gloss a touch of nutty flavor and scent.
1 teaspoon grated cocoa butter
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon macadamia nut oil
1 teaspoon light sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil
*Yields: 1/2 ounce
Directions: Place all ingredients in a heat-resistant container and warm up the mixture in the microwave or in a hot, but not boiling water bath until the cocoa butter and coconut oil are melted. Then, stir mixture well and pour into something like a lip gloss container or small plastic box. Allow the mixture to cool completely. This gloss can be worn under or over a colored lipstick or stain. Store in a cool, dry place.
