Buttery Lip Balm

Image of Buttery Lip balm with Beeswax in jars

This recipe produces a soft, buttery lip balm that is ideally stored in aluminium tins. Essential oils that are recommended for lip balms are orange, lemon, mandarin, lime, grapefruit, or a small amount of peppermint. We use larger amounts of essential oils than would be expected for a leave-on product to compensate for heat evaporation. You can also personalise this recipe with aroma flavours and pearlescent colours.

Stage 1:
15% Beeswax
65% Jojoba Oil
10% Thistle Oil
8% Cocoa Butter

Stage 2: (below 50°C)

Method:

Heat all the Stage 1 ingredients in a double boiler, making sure your oils are not heat-sensitive. Heat sensitive oils should be added in Stage 2. Stir and melt fully.

Mix the balm until it has cooled to approximately 40-50°C. Stir in the remaining heat sensitive ingredients like tinctures, macerated oils or essential oils. Pour into jars and leave to cool before sealing and labelling.
