Soy Butter Lip Balm


    Date : 2009-07-09

    Introduction

    This was made on the blog on July 9th 2009.

    Ingredients

      1.56 ounces Beeswax
      3.12 ounces Soy Butter
      0.78 ounces Regular Cocoa Butter
      2.34 ounces Sweet Almond Oil
      0.312 to .468 ounces Cranberry Flavor Oil

    Equipment

      Microwave safe container for weighing ingredients
      Mixing Spoons
      Scale
      Transfer pipettes
      Containers for the finished products

    Instructions

    Weigh all ingredients except for the Cranberry Flavor Oil into the container for mixing. Microwave in short bursts until the oils are completely melted. The beeswax and cocoa butter will take the longest to melt, so if you don t want to wait for those to melt, you can use the Beeswax Prills and chop the cocoa butter into small crumbles. After the oils have been melted, add the flavor oil and color, if desired. Once the flavor has been mixed into the lip balm, you are now ready to fill your lip balm tubes. Don t be alarmed if the lip balm sets up quickly! I ve found it is one of the quirks of a Soy Butter lip balm!
