Flat White Coffee Lip Balm

FlateWhiteCoffeLBWhen I was in college, I would get up on Saturday mornings to go have coffee and breakfast with my best friend. Today we are hundreds of miles away, living different lives. While it is no longer practical for us to chat over breakfast, we send emails, letters and instant messages. I miss those mornings. In the spirit of nostalgia, I wanted to make a lip balm to celebrate those long morning chats. Come join me for the perfect coffee lover’s lip balm!

Weighing Coffee Butter

Weighing Coffee Butter

Weigh all of the oils except for the Buttercream Flavor Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat in 30 second increments until everything has melted. If the beeswax is being stubborn, remove the mixture from the microwave and stir well. This often will allow the beeswax to melt from the heat of the other oils. Once the oils have completely melted, add the Buttercream Flavor Oil. Stir well.

Adding White Cocoa Butter

Adding White Cocoa Butter

From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes or you can use a filling tray. I like using a filling tray because they are simple and fast. If you are using a filling tray, insert your tubes into your tray. Flood the tray with your melted lip balm. Allow the mixture to cool. Scrape off the excess. I like to use a plastic putty knife. Remove the tubes from the tray and cap.

Adding Beeswax

Adding Beeswax

If you are going to pipette the lip balm into the tubes, fill the tube until you get a dome of liquid material at the top. Wax shrinks when it cools and doing this helps insure that you get a very pretty top. Fill all of your tubes making sure they are domed on the top before they cool. (You may need to reheat your jar of lip solutions during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.
