Macadamia Lip Balm


    Date : 2009-12-12

    Introduction

    This was made on the blog on January 12th 2010.

    Ingredients

      30 grams Macadamia Nut Oil
      20 grams Beeswax
      30 grams Soy Butter
      18 grams Kukui Oil
      1 grams Vitamin E Acetate
      1 grams Cheesecake Flavor Oil
      Touch of White Lip Balm Color, Oil Soluble

    Equipment

      Microwave safe container for weighing ingredients
      Mixing Spoons
      Scale
      Transfer Pipettes
      Containers for the finished products (I m using the Rectangular Slider Tins)

    Instructions

    Weigh all ingredients except the Vitamin E Acetate and Cheesecake Flavor into your microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the oils have been melted, add the Vitamin E Acetate and Cheesecake Flavor. Once all of the ingredients have been mixed together, I added a touch of White Lip Balm Color to the melted lip balm. Stir until all of the color has been incorporated into the mixture.

    Set your rectangular lip balm tins out to pour the lip balm into them. This lip balm can cool quickly, so make sure you don t dawdle in pouring. You may have to reheat the lip balm to continue pouring.

    Comments

    Each tin held between 8 to 9 grams of lip balm and still were able to be closed without scraping off the top surface. I filled 12 to 13 tins with each 100 gram batch.
