How To Make Lip Oil In Simple Steps

If you are on a low budget and you don’t really want to spend money on products like Lip Oil that could easily be replaced, we got you covered.

Let’s find out some simple ways on how to create your own oil for your specific needs especially this winter.

Reasons why lip oils are necessary:

Unlike the skin on the rest of your body, the lips don’t have sebaceous oil glands. That’s why they’re so much more vulnerable to dryness and damage. 

Lip oils provide deep hydration while adding a layer of protection against harsh elements and they are different from lip balms because they are made from natural oils that can penetrate deep into the lips to add moisture that lasts for hours without reapplying.

Tips on how to make lip oil:

Make DIY lip oil at home with a few natural ingredients. Follow these steps:

  1. You can make homemade lip oil with many nourishing oils. Try sweet almond oil, avocado oil, sunflower seed oil, rosehip oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, or olive oil.
  2. Combine with a thickening agent. Mix your carrier oil with vegetable glycerin or honey.
  3. Add additional moisturizing ingredients like vitamin C or vitamin E oil.
  4. Some makeup artists like to add a few drops of peppermint or lavender essential oil for a pleasant scent or gentle plumping effect. You can also add a pigment, such as beetroot powder, for a tint or hint of color.
  5. Combine your ingredients in your container. A mini roller bottle allows for easy glide-on application.
  6. Shake your container well until all your ingredients are thoroughly combined and the mixture looks homogenous.
  7. Store in a cool, dry place. Homemade lip oil will last for several months—even without added preservatives—as long as you keep the lip oil away from moisture.
