DIY Basic Lip Balm
Basic Lip Balm Making Directions:
20% of your recipe should be cosmetic grade Beeswax
25% of your recipe should be any cosmetic grade oil that is solid at room temperature (coconut oil, palm oil, lanolin, shea butter, mango butter, sal butter, kokum butter)
15% of your recipe should be any cosmetic grade oil that is brittle at room temperature (cocoa butter, palm kernel oil, etc.)
40% of your recipe should be any cosmetic grade oil that is liquid at room temperature (sweet almond oil, apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, hemp seed oil, grape seed oil, sunflower seed oil, macadamia nut oil, olive oil, etc.)
All terms of measurements are weights. Measure your recipe in ounces, grams, or pounds
Weigh all of your ingredients
Melt them in a double boiler until all of your recipe is melted (never melt over direct heat!)
When all of your ingredients are melted you can add your flavor oil or essential oil to taste (start with small amount and add as needed)
Fill your containers with lip balm (we recommend using disposable plastic pipettes)
