1/4 beetroot (sliced and chopped)

3 tbsp glycerin


  1. Carefully wash and slice the beetroot into small cubes, and fill a pot with warm water.
  2. Allow the water to reach a boil, then place the beetroot and glycerin into the pot and cover with a dish. Allow it to reduce for 20-25 minutes until the water has completely evaporated.
  3. Remove from the heat, and run the liquid through a sieve to remove any chunky bits.
  4. Before the liquid completely cools, place it into small containers and fill to the top. Over a period of a few hours, the liquid with solidify and become a balm. Use as a lip stain, or even cheek tint for instant colour!
