Lemon Ginger Lip Balm

Finished Lemon Ginger Lip Balm

Finished Lemon Ginger Lip Balm

Just last year, I started a journey where I began to learn about fermented foods. Over the months, I have learned how to make yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, and more! If you want to learn to make these spectacular things yourself, I highly recommend Fermented Vegetables by Karen and Christopher Shockey. It is my favorite book on fermentation and the book is filled with great stories, easy recipes and mouth watering pictures. You can even get this book in your next qualifying order! How cool is that?

My fermentation journey has given me plenty of inspiration and bravery to create my own concoctions. So when I saw plump ginger and some gorgeous lemons at the grocery store over the weekend, I just knew I had to make something. While I didn’t precisely ferment the lemons and ginger, I did end up preserving them in some honey. The result was a sweet, spicy and citrusy mix that I can add to hot water for a simple and yummy tea. I have loved the flavor combination so much, I wanted to share it. Come join me for a fun flavored lip balm.

Weighing Beeswax

Weighing Beeswax

Weigh all of the oils except for the Ginger Essential Oil, Lemon Argentina Essential Oil and Sugar Baby 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 Ginger Essential Oil, Lemon Argentina Essential Oil and Sugar Baby Flavor Oil. Stir well.

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 then cap.

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 lip balm during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.

Now you can give your lip balm a pretty label or put it into a cute bag. Enjoy this great lip balm or give as gifts!
