Sure! Here's a simple recipe for making a glycerin lip gloss at home:

- 1 tablespoon of beeswax
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of sweet almond oil
- 1 teaspoon of glycerin
- Optional: a few drops of essential oil for fragrance (such as lavender or peppermint)

1. In a double boiler or a heat-safe bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil together. Stir gently until everything is melted and well combined.
2. Remove the mixture from heat and let it cool for a few minutes.
3. Add the glycerin to the mixture and stir well. If desired, add a few drops of your chosen essential oil for fragrance.
4. Pour the mixture into small lip gloss containers or empty lip balm tubes.
5. Let the lip gloss cool and solidify completely before using.

Note: Glycerin is a humectant, which means it helps to retain moisture in the skin. It can be a great addition to lip gloss as it helps to keep your lips hydrated. However, if you have any allergies or sensitivities to glycerin or any other ingredients, it's always best to do a patch test before applying the lip gloss to your lips.
