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 small pots or aluminium jars. Essential oils that are recommended for lip balms are orange, lemon, mandarin, lime, grapefruit, lavender, spearmint 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: (heat until melted)
65% Jojoba Oil
15% Beeswax
10% Thistle Oil
8% Cocoa Butter

Stage 2: (below 50°C)
2% Essential Oils of your choice
100% Total
 

Method:

  • Heat all the Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients in a double boiler until they are all melted.
  • Remove from the heat and keep stirring as it cools down to approximately 40-50°C.
  • Stir in the remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly. Pour into jars and leave to cool before sealing and labelling.
