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.
  2. Place all 16 push up sticks on a cookie sheet.
  3. Place a glass measuring cup on the scale and tare to zero. Add 5.33 oz. of lip balm base. Place in microwave and heat until completely melted.
  4. Once melted, add 1 teaspoon of Cotton Candy fragrance oil and mix in. Add 1/2 teaspoon of sweetener and 1/4 teaspoon of Mica Blue color and mix in. Add more blue color to achieve a darker color.
  5. Pour into tubes, dividing blue lip balm into all 16 tubes. Each layer should be about 1/2" deep.
  6. Let first layer completely harden.
  7. Clean glass measuring cup well to prepare for 2nd layer.
  8. Place measuring cup on scale and tare to zero. Add 5.33 oz. of lip balm base. Heat in microwave until just melted.
  9. Add 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Swirl fragrance oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sweetener and 1/8 teaspoon of white pigment for oil. Mix together well.
  10. Let base cool sliqhtly before pouring so it does not melt the first layer. Pour over blue layer, dividing among the 16 tubes. Again, this layer should be about 1/2" deep.
  11. Let completely cool.
  12. Clean glass cup, again, to prepare for final layer.
  13. Add remaining lip balm base to glass measuring cup. Heat in microwave until just melted.
  14. Add 1 teaspoon of Watermelon Fragrance oil, 1/2 teaspoon of sweetener and 1/4 teaspoon of red orange mica shimmer. If darker color is desired, add more red orange mica shimmer. Mix well.
  15. Let product cool slightly then pour top layer of red lip balm into each tube. Let cool completely.
  16. Once lip balm has hardened, screw cap onto each tube. Label product accordingly as per the FDA guidelines.
  17. If desired, use 65 x 55 Shrink Wrap Band to prevent tampering.
