Ingredients & Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place beeswax pellets and cocoa butter in a heat-proof glass measuring cup.
  2. Melt the oils in the microwave or on the stovetop in a pan filled with an inch of simmering water (creating a double boiler). Heat until completely melted.
  3. Add jojoba oil to the melted oils, and continue to heat until all the oil is incorporated.
  4. Allow to cool for a minute, and then stir in essential oils.
  5. Pour the mixture into your lip balm containers of choice. You may find it easier to use a small dropper or small funnel to transfer the mixture into the small containers without spilling on the side.
  6. Allow mixture to cool and solidify before using.

Extra Idea:

Create fun labels for your lip balm creations using our 2″ x 4″ Blank White Labels. Set up your labels so that two labels fit side-by-side on each 2″ x 4″ label; then cut the label in half after printing so that you have two labels that each measure 2″ x 2″. This size fits perfectly on our White Lip Balm Dispensers. Our .5″ x 1.75″ Blank White Labels also fit perfectly on our 1/4 oz. Lip Gloss Containers.

  5. Place the frying pan and measuring cup on the stove, and turn the burner on low.
  6. Stir the mixture in the measuring cup with a Popsicle stick or bamboo skewer every couple of minutes until the wax is completely melted (about 5–15 minutes).
  7. Turn off the stove, and carefully remove the measuring cup from the frying pan. Place the measuring cup on a towel on a countertop or table.
  8. Stir in 5–10 drops of your desired essential oil or blend.
  9. Pour the mixture into lip balm dispenserslip gloss containers, or any other small jar or container. This recipe will fill 8–10 containers.

Allow mixture to cool and solidify.
  10. Print the label template we have provided, or create your own fun labels. Set up your labels so that two labels fit side-by-side on each 2″x 4″ label; then cut the label in half after printing so that you have two labels that each measure 2″ x 2″.
