Organic Lipstick

1 tablespoon dried alkanet root
1 tablespoon beeswax
3/8 cup organic extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon jojoba oil
9 Drops rose essential oil
You will also need a piece of muslin cloth

Grate the beeswax and melt it using a double boiler or microwave. Heat the jojoba oil and the extra virgin olive oil, for around ten minutes. Remove the oils from heat and add the alkanet root to it. Let the alkanet root infuse with the oils for a few minutes, so that the color starts mixing well with the oils. Place a piece of muslin cloth over a container and pour the mixture through it to squeeze out the entire mixture. Then, pour the strained mixture into the double boiler and add the melted beeswax to it, heating it slightly so that it mixes well. Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool, and then add the nine drops of rose essential oil to it and stir well. Pour the mixture into lip pots or lip tubes and let it cool further.
