What You’ll Need:
2 oz. + 1 heaping Tablespoon Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1.5 tsp vitamin E Essential Oil
2 oz Cosmetic Grade Beeswax
Plastic Lip Balm Containers or small craft jars
Optional: Essential oil for fragrance
Optional: A slice of your favorite colored lip stick if you’d like to add a slight tint to the balm.
Double broiler or sauce pan & metal mason jar lid ring
Wood stick for stirring
What You’ll Do:
Step 1: The first step is to place your coconut oil, beeswax, and vitamin E oil into a glass measuring cup. The vitamin E will act as a moisturizer and preservative, the coconut oil is our moisturizer, and the beeswax will hold everything together.
Step 2: If you do not have a double boiler get a pan and fill it about half way with water and bring it to a boil. Put a metal mason jar lid inside the pan to create a homemade double boiler. (You do not want to place the glass measuring cup right in your pan as it may crack from the heat. Place the glass on the mason jar lid instead).
Step 3: Once the water in the double boiler is at a slight boil, place your glass measuring cup into the water to melt the oils. After all of the oils are melted together, you should have a nice golden liquid.
Step 4: If you want to a scent or flavor to your lip balm add it now.
Step 5: Carefully pour mixture into your containers and allow to cool fully. Once the lip balm is set you can share them with your friends.
