Making Lip Balm from Diane’s Cupboard
|The last request of Diane’s was for a lip balm. I tackled Diane’s lip balm with vigor. She has some oils that are a treat for the lips, so this lip balm is a perfect pampering treat. As a review, here are the ingredients in her cupboard.
I used all of Diane’s oils in this recipe along with Beeswax. This lip balm has a great light flavor due to the Orange Butter so extra flavors are not necessary.
Collect needed items:
Weigh all ingredients into your microwave safe container. Microwave using short bursts of time, stirring every 20 to 30 seconds until all the ingredients have been melted. Do NOT microwave until the mixture is completely liquid as the mixture will be too hot to handle. The Beeswax will be the last ingredient to melt and if you are patient, simply stirring will melt the Beeswax. Using a transfer pipette, fill your lip balm tubes and allow to cool. Try to not move the containers much until the lip balm has set to prevent accidental messes.
Yield: This recipe will fill 22 of the lip balm tubes.
