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. Measure out your Beeswax and Candellila wax and place in glass pyrex bowl. Add 1 tablespoon each of Castor Oil and Sweet Almond Oil
  3. Heat in microwave until 3/4 of wax is melted. If you prefer, heat products in double boiler. Remove from heat.
  4. Add shorea(sal) butter. Return to microwave or double boiler and continue to melt just until waxes and butter have turned to liquid.
  5. Add Vitamin E and essential oil and stir. If this causes the product to thicken up, return to heat source until liquid again.
  6. Add a scant 1/8 teaspoon of Bath Bomb Orange Powder color to liquid. Gently stir.
  7. Pour into lip balm tubes and let cool. Droppers or beakers are helpful in filling the lip tubes.
  8. Stir occasionally while pouring to keep powder color from settling.
  9. Let cool completely. Put caps on and label accordingly.
  10. Repeat recipe with different essential oils or until desired amount of lip tubes have been produced!
