Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask.  We also recommend a clean apron and workspace.
  2. Turn the lip balm filling tray upside down, and press all the lip balm tubes into each opening.
  3. Carefully flip the tray right side up. We found using a cookie sheet helpful.
  4. Scoop 2.75 oz. of Lip Balm Base for Sticks into a glass-measuring cup.
  5. Melt the lip balm base in a microwave until completely melted. We recommend melting at thirty-second increments.
  6. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Matte Americana Red Oxide Pigment Powder to the melted lip balm.
  7. Stir well to incorporate the color.
  8. Check the temperature of the lip balm. When the temperature is below 130º F, proceed to the next step.
  9. Use a plastic dropper to add 3 mL of Strawberry Sorbet Sweetened Flavor Oil to the melted lip balm, and stir well.
  10. Slowly pour the lip balm into the first row of lip balm tubes. (You may have extra lip balm depending on how much is poured on the tray)
  11. Scoop another 2.75 oz. of Lip Balm Base for Sticks into a clean glass-measuring cup.
  12. Melt the lip balm base in a microwave until completely melted.
  13. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Coral Oil Locking Mica Shimmer to the melted lip balm.
  14. Stir well to incorporate the color.
  15. Check the temperature of the lip balm. When the temperature is below 130º F, proceed to the next step.
  16. Use a plastic dropper to add 3 mL of Strawberry Sorbet Sweetened Flavor Oil to the melted lip balm, and stir well.
  17. Slowly pour the lip balm into the second row of lip balm tubes. (You may have extra lip balm depending on how much is poured on the tray)
  18. Scoop another 2.75 oz. of Lip Balm Base for Sticks into a clean glass-measuring cup.

  20. Add 1/4 teaspoon of Neon Pink Pleasures Powder to the melted lip balm.
  21. Stir well to incorporate the color.
  22. Check the temperature of the lip balm. When the temperature is below 130º F, proceed to the next step.
  23. Use a plastic dropper to add 3 mL of Strawberry Sorbet Sweetened Flavor Oil to the melted lip balm, and stir well.
  24. Slowly pour the lip balm into the third row of lip balm tubes. (You may have extra lip balm depending on how much is poured on the tray)
