I don’t know what others has to say about this but I believe that Lip Gloss or Lip Balm are women’s best friends. Why I said so? Just check your bag and you’ll find one. No matter its pink or purple; matte or glossy; we all want our lips softer and shinier 24X7. I am no different than you all, but I always thought that what these chemicals would do to my lips if I apply these lip balms/lip glosses every day. My mom always has a homemade alternative to these chemical filled cosmetics, so I asked her if she has anything this time and she said – Yes.

I personally tried these recipes for homemade lip balm and lip gloss and completely loved them. Trust me; they are very easy to make at home and help your lips look softer and shinier.
Here are few homemade recipes for Lip Balm and Lip Glosses.

Homemade Lip Balm for chapped and dry lips:

One can very easily prepare chemical free lip balm at home using these natural ingredients. Take following ingredients:

- 50 g. Beeswax
- 35 g. Honey
- 65 g. Sesame oil

Recipe: Melt the beeswax in a double boiler, blend in the honey and then sesame oil, whisking to a smooth consistency. Store the mixture in a glass jar and apply it daily for beautiful and softer lips.

Homemade Lip Gloss for shinier lips:

This one is again simple to make and gives long lasting glossy lips. Take following ingredients:

- 1 Teaspoon beeswax
- 4 Teaspoon cocoa butter

Recipe: Melt beeswax and add the cocoa butter; the mixture will solidify on cooling and can be easily applied with brush. Store it in cool and dry place.

Homemade colored Lip Gloss:

If you are thinking about missing the shades your regular lip gloss gives to your lips then hold on a sec.  This homemade lip gloss can give your lips a lovely shade as well.  Lip gloss shade can vary from pink to burgundy.

Here are the ingredients you would need for this colored lip gloss:

- 1 Tablespoon beeswax
- 5 Tablespoon sesame oil
- Alkanet root for coloring

Recipe: Melt the beeswax and the oil in a container in boiling water; just before pouring into small jars add the coloring agent as prepared by below mentioned method. Depth of the color can be controlled by the amount you add.

How to make coloring agent using Alkanet root:

Put 15 g. alkanet roots in a glass bottle and add ½ pint vodka; allow steeping for a week, shaking several times a day; strain. Again the range from pale pink to a deep red must be judged by eye and can be controlled by adding the coloring drop by drop.
