This recipe is easy-peezy. After you make these, you will wonder why you were spending $3 per tube from the store.
1 ounce Beeswax
2 tbsp Avocado Oil
4 tsp Coconut Oil
2 tsp Cocoa Butter
2 tsp Honey
1 tsp Aloe Vera
1/2 tsp Vitamin E Oil
1/8-1 tsp Beet Powder (optional colorant)
12 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
14 0.15-ounce Lip Balm Tubes
In a double boiler, combine beeswax, avocado oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter and honey. Melt over low heat until beeswax, honey and oils are melted. Take the pan off of the heat and add the aloe vera, vitamin E oil, beet powder and grapefruit essential oil. Stir with whisk to combine. Hint: tilt the pan when adding the beet powder, exposing a little of the bottom of the pan and add the beet powder. Whisk the beet powder into the little remaining mixture until there are no lumps. Tilt the pan back to its upright position and whisk until combined. Pour lip balm mixture into a measuring cup with a pour spout and pour mixture into 0.15-ounce tubes. Allow to cool completely. Makes 14 0.15 ounce lip balm tubes.
