Your Very First Lip Balm

By Shannon Baxter

Unlike the soap tutorial, making lip balm, while requiring you to handle hot oils and wax, is not as dangerous and pretty simple to do. Melt the oils, butters, and beeswax together and allow to cool to around 130 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the propolis and essential oils. Stir and pour into your tubes. I secure my tubes in a silicone tube holder. It makes it easier to pour and clean up. Remember, when using the holding trays, you can over-pour the mold and remove the excess, once it has cooled, to prevent ‘holes’ and divots in your balm.

Ingredients: 1 ounce Beeswax, 1 ounce Shea Butter, 1 ounce Coconut Oil, 10 drops Propolis, ½ teaspoon Essential Oil
