Melt the ingredients in Phase I over a double boiler.
Add Vegetable Glycerin and whisk until emulsified.
While still warm, add the desired amount of flavour oil and mica.
Using a knife or other flat instrument, gently remove the applicator wiper from the container.
While lip-gloss is still warm and liquefied, fill containers using a tiny funnel. Be careful not to fill cylinders to the top! You need room to insert the applicator wiper and wand.
Allow the product to cool completely before capping.
