Since all of my pots are cast iron, and I was not willing to buy a double boiler pot I had to improvise. I filled a one quart cast iron pot three-quarters full of water, and balanced on it, a stainless steel mixing bowl just big enough to sit inside the pot without falling all the way in. To this, I added my olive oil and beeswax until melted. When the oils were combined I blended in the Rosemary essential oil. Using a very small ladle, I then poured my mixture into lip balm pots.
