This DIY Citrus Honey Lip Gloss is easy to make in just a few minutes! The honey softens and moisturizes while the coconut oil provides deeper moisturizing for a longer time. You can also use any kind of essential oil you love the smell of. But I’ve been loving any of the citrus essential oils from lemon and orange to grapefruit in this lip gloss recipe.



2 Tablespoons coconut oil

1 Tablespoon grated beeswax

1 Teaspoon honey

1015 drops essential oil, my favorites are lemon and grapefruit


Heat the coconut oil, beeswax, and honey over low heat in a small saucepan.

When the wax is fully dissolved, remove from heat. Place the saucepan over a small ice bath and whisk until the lip gloss is emulsified and set, (about 1 minute).

Add your choice of essential oil, and whisk to combine.

Transfer to a clean container and use within 6 months.
