D.I.Y. Lip Balm

Hey guys, at the beginning of the year I will start experimenting in making a few of my own products for my company. Here is a great recipe for some lip balm that is easy and fun to make. I found this one on WellnessMama.com

Natural Tinted Lip Balm Recipe

Prep time
5 mins
Cook time
10 mins
Total time
15 mins

Ingredients
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon beeswax pastilles (or 2 Tablespoons if making in lip chap containers)
1 tablespoon Shea Butter or Cocoa Butter
This base recipe will fill about 6 small tins or about 10 plastic lip chap containers. I get mine here.
Instructions
Melt the coconut oil, beeswax and shea/cocoa butter in a glass jar sitting in a small pot of simmering water (not boiling) and stir gently until melted (be careful not to get any water into the mixture).
When melted, carefully stir in any colors or essential oils, if using. My favorite is lemon and vanilla for scent and a little red coloring or cocoa powder for color. A couple drops of peppermint will make it similar to Burt’s Bees Lip Chap.
Once colors/scents are mixed in, use a dropper to transfer to tins or lip chap containers. Let cool.
Apply the versions in the tins with your finger or use the version in plastic container as you would regular lip chap.
Notes
Optional Add-Ins For Red Hues: ⅛ teaspoon of beet root powder or 1 drop of natural red food coloring with no chemical additives. NOTE: Add these very slowly as a little goes a long way! I added one drop of natural red food coloring to the recipe above! For Brown/Tan Hues: ¼ teaspoon (or more for color) of organic cocoa powder, a tiny pinch of cinnamon or turmeric to get the shade you want For Scent: A drop of essential oil of choice (optional)
