Enjoy a Soothing Maple Lip Gloss

Texas winters can be pretty wild. It’s either dry and cold, or weirdly hot and humid. Either way, the heat or air conditioning does a number on my lips.

Protect your lips with this soothing lip gloss, easy to make right in your kitchen! With an ingredient that is a must for any fall and winter recipes, the gloss’s taste and scent will give you those cuddly cold-weather vibes!

Share this recipe with friends, or make a few as some sweet gifts for special occasions.

Maple Lip Gloss

  • 1 teaspoon grated cocoa butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated beeswax (you can source this from industrious neighbors or the local farmer’s market)
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon walnut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil 


  1. Combine the butter, beeswax, and oils. Gently heat until melted (stovetop or microwave is fine, just use caution with hot oils!).
  2. Once melted, add the maple syrup and vitamin E oil. Stir well.
  3. Pour into a small, clean container with a lid (sterilized baby food containers work wonderfully).
  4. Apply this light lip gloss alone, or over your favorite colors.
  5. The oils can last anywhere from six months to a year. Keep them cool and in sterilized containers.

Why not make a bath melt that looks like a macaron, or top a bath bomb with cocoa butter “icing”? Her inspiration comes from sweet treats and fancy deserts, gems and rocks, and magical creatures.
