Lip Balm Tutorial Time!!!!

Hi everyone!  Today I made up some lip balm, and thought I'd share the process!  Let's get right into it!

What you'll need:
-A double boiler or similar (I use a regular old pot and a pyrex bowl dedicated solely to wax projects)

-Lip Balm tubes (I use these from Amazon)

-A pipette (Got mine here)

-Beeswax (I got mine locally, but you can buy it on Amazon. I melted my block first and separated it into 2 tblsp mini-blocks) About 2 tablespoons

-Organic Virgin Coconut Oil  3 tablespoons

-Shea Butter 3 tablespoons

-Sweet Almond Oil  Just a little smidge, I just poured a little in. 

-Essential Oils **Use only Theraputic Grade Essential Oils**  I recommend Young Living Essential Oils. I happen to be an Independent Distributor of Young Living Essential Oils, so I can hook you up with some great oils! 20 drops

Step 1: Gather your Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Sweet Almond Oil, and Essential Oils

Step 2: Get your double boiler going! As you can see I use a regular pot, put in some water, and place my bowl on top.  I used Medium heat on the burner

Step 3: Melt your stuff! DON'T add in the essential oil yet.

Step 4: Add in 20 drops of your oil. I used "Joy."  If using more than one oil, use 20 drop TOTAL, so split it up!

Step 5: Stir, Stir Stir! I use a spare chopstick.

Step 5: Using your pipette, suck up some of the liquid and squirt it into your empty lip balm tube. Fill as close to the top as you can.

Step 6: As the lip balm cools and solidifies, it will contract down, so save some to top off the cooled ones.  Allow to cool for a least 20 minutes before placing the caps.

And there you have it!  Enjoy!
