Lip Balm Recipe: Ingredients:
¼ cup sweet almond oil.
¼ cup Shea butter
1/4 cup beeswax pellets. Use enough of the three ingredients to make ¾ cup total lip balm mixture.)
Use several drops essential oils or 20-40 drops any flavor from our site..
Measure your oil and butter and bees wax into a heatproof glass measuring cup, should be a total of ¾ cup. Microwave a minute or two until melted. (You can also melt the mixture by setting the glass measuring cup in a pan of gently boiling water – like a makeshift double boiler.) The glass measuring cup will get very hot, so be extra careful when handing.
Then mix everything together with a spoon or fork. Pull the spoon out and wait a few minutes until what’s left on the spoon hardens. Test this to see if it’s hard or soft enough for your liking. Make your adjustments now (adding more oil if you want it softer, or more wax if you like it harder).
Optional Step: When the consistency is where you want it, add a few drops of an essential oil like peppermint or grapefruit or 20-40 drops of any flavoring from our site. (One year for Christmas, I made lip balms in chocolate and orange. I melted some dark chocolate into it and added some orange essential oil.) You can color your homemade lip balm by adding small amounts of powdered herbs such as beetroot powder. Stir it in well so that there are no lumps.
Carefully pour into lip balm tubes or tins. You can clean and reuse old ones or buy new ones. You can purchase lip balm tubes here or small tins here.
I’ve been using this recipe for years.
The wax you use varies in hardness, so you may need to remelt your finished product to discover your preferred texture. Add a bit more wax to make it harder or a bit more oil to make it softer and that's it, so easy.
