Lip balm is truly one of the easiest and most inexpensive products to create. Once that you have created your own homemade lip balm, it is almost impossible to muster up $3.00 for a tube of inferior stuff at the store. Plus, you can even make special blends with your favorite oils, butters, and other luxurious ingredients. You seasonal lip balms, and unique lip balms for friends and families. Lip balm may be made within 10-15 minutes, and you can easily make enough lip balm to fill 15 or more lip balm tubes.
Coarsely chop or grated your, and place it in a small pot or glass pyrex measuring cup with your butters and carrier oils in the top of a double boiler, and melt gently over heated water. Make sure that the water does not boil over into your oil mixture, 1 -2 of water in the bottom of your pot is enough.
Once that your beeswax mixture has melted, remove from burner, and add your essential oils. The essential oils will begin to dissipate with the scent, add more as needed.
Immediately pour the hot mixture into lip balm containers. If the mixture cools too rapidly while you are pouring, then heat the mixture back up over the double boiler.
Allow to cool completely (I usually wait overnight) before placing the caps onto your lip balm containers.
Below is specific recipe for you to play with. Please note that this recipe is completely arbitrary, and the amount and types of oil, butter, essential oil, and other ingredients that you use is completely up to you. Experimenting with a recipe is the most enjoyable part of creation!
This recipe will fill 8-9 lip balm tubes!
