Here you will learn how to make roll on lip gloss. Don’t worry, it is easy to make and you will love the simplicity of use. You will be able to soften your lips and moisturize your lips.
You need a glass roller bottle to make this recipe, size 10 ml (2 teaspoons). I find it best to use a roller bottle with a metal rollerball top, they roll smoother.
When making lip oil recipes be sure to buy quality ingredients. Your oils should come from reputable companies. For carrier oil it is best to buy cold-pressed oils and organic if available.
Best Essential Oils for Lip Gloss
You may want to add a little flavor or scent to your roll on lip balm with essential oils. Essential oils are very concentrated so you will only need a few drops. You will also gain other benefits from crafting an essential oil lip gloss. Here are 5 favorites:
1.) Lavender Essential Oil: Healing, calms inflammation, soothes delicate lip tissue
2.) Peppermint Essential Oil: Invigorating, cooling to lips, eases discomfort from chapped lips
3.) Tangerine Essential Oil: Uplifting, citrusy flavor and scent, healing to skin, helps regenerate skin cells
4.) Spearmint Essential Oil: Cooling, minty flavor and scent, refreshes lips
5.) Tea Tree Oil: Good for daily skincare, anti-fungal properties, eases sore throats and coughs
Use caution when picking essential oils for lips. Some essential oils like bergamot and lime can increase the risk of sun damage when the areas these oils were applied to are exposed to the sun (phototoxicity). If you want to use lime, try steam distilled lime as it will not cause sun sensitivity.
Jojoba Oil for Lips
Jojoba oil is a liquid wax that is near odorless and stores well. Because it is a wax, it doesn’t go rancid like other carrier oils. Jojoba oil mimics the skin’s own sebum, which helps to balance the skin. It is nourishing to very sensitive skin too.

Castor Oil for Lips
Chapped lips don’t look good on anyone. Beyond the irritation and pain, you’ll feel more self-conscious when they’re chapped, wondering if everyone you talk to notices them. Castor oil can help them get back to that soft, supple, and attractive appearance. It also reduces the redness and pain you get when you have sunburned or windburned lips.
