Recipe by UnknownChef86

A fun craft idea for kids. Not intended for very small children.

Top Review by Abby Girl

I have made this and given away as gifts. The kids love it, especially when scented with bubblegum flavour!!! The only thing I would be concerned about in this recipe, is that there are no never know how many people have their fingers in the pot!!! Vitamin E works well with this. Also, the food colouring may not work well for people with sensitive skin. But on the whole, the recipe works well

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup aloe vera gel
  • 1 teaspoon glycerin (check the pharmacy)
  • 14 teaspoon fine polyester glitter, any color (check the craft store)
  • 4 -5 drops fragrance oil (optional)
  • food coloring (optional)


  1. Mix aloe and the glycerin in a small bowl.
  2. Stir in the polyester glitter and the fragrance oil and food coloring, if desired.
  3. Spoon this mixture into tiny lipgloss size jars or any other small containers, preferably clear, so you can see the sparkles inside.
  4. Try varying the types of glitter you use to make all sorts of varieties; you can get heart, diamond, or star shapes.
  5. This fun recipe is easy to make, and is a great idea for crafters to add to their inventory of crafts to sell at craft sales or fundraisers.
