Recipe #2: TKB's Basic Lip Oil Recipe

 Ingredients and formulation suggestions:

The main component of lip oils, base oils provide moisturization and nourishment to the lips. You can choose from various oils depending on your preferences and skin type.

This ingredient can add viscosity and give the lip oil a slightly thicker texture.

Vitamin E oil helps protect the lips from free radicals and extends the shelf life of the lip oil. It also provides some additional nourishment.
You can use lip-safe micas, pigments, or dyes to add color to your lip oil. Ensure that the colorants you choose are specifically designed for use in lip products to ensure safety.
Add a few drops of flavoring oils to give your lip oil a pleasant scent or flavor.
  • Plumping Ingredients (optional): Peppermint Essential Oil.  The way plumping ingredients work is to slightly irritate your lips.  Peppermint has a slightly irritating effect.  So if you feel a tingling sensation and a temporary increase in volume, that menas it is working!

Lip Liquid Set


  1. Prepare a clean container for your lip oil, such as a lip gloss tube or a small glass jar with a lid.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl or a small saucepan, combine the desired base oil (around 1 tablespoon) with a small amount of thickener (if desired, around 1/4 teaspoon). Heat the mixture gently until the thickener is fully dissolved, if applicable.
  3. Add a few drops of vitamin E oil (optional) for its antioxidant benefits and mix well.
  4. If you want to add color, incorporate a small amount of lip-safe colorant or pigment. Start with a pinch and adjust until you achieve the desired color. Mix thoroughly to distribute the color evenly.
  5. If you prefer a scented or flavored lip oil, add a few drops of your chosen essential oil. Adjust the amount based on your preference and mix well.
  6. Carefully pour the mixture into your chosen container, using a small funnel or dropper if necessary.
  7. Allow the lip oil to cool and solidify. If using a lip gloss tube, you can refrigerate it to speed up the setting process.
  8. Once solidified, your lip oil is ready to use! Apply a small amount to your lips for hydration, shine, and optional color. 

Thickeners, Antioxidants, Plumping Ingredients

Remember to store your homemade lip oil in a cool, dry place and use it within a few months. Always perform a patch test before using any new lip product and discontinue use if you experience any adverse reactions.

Feel free to experiment with different oils, colorants, flavors, and plumping ingredients to create your ideal lip oil formulation.

Base Oils

Here are some tips and tricks for maximizing the benefits of your lip oil:

  1. Begin with clean, dry lips: Prior to applying lip oil, ensure that your lips are clean and devoid of any other products.
  2. Apply a small quantity: Lip oil goes a long way, so start with a small amount and add more if necessary.
  3. Use it as a base for lipstick or gloss: Lip oil can serve as a primer, making your lipstick or gloss application smoother and more long-lasting.
  4. Reapply as required: While lip oil provides long-lasting moisture, you may need to reapply it throughout the day based on your personal needs.
  5. Store in a cool, dry location: To prevent the oils from spoiling, store your lip oil in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
