Step 1: Gather and Measure the Ingredients
- 3oz Coconut Oil
- 2oz Beeswax (we used the pellet form, but any form will do)
- 3/4oz Pure Shea Butter
- 1/4oz Pure Lanolin
- Rosemary Essential Oil (about 10-15 drops)
- Peppermint Essential Oil (about 25 drops)
- Lip Balm Containers/ Tubes (about 50)
- Pot or Pan (to melt the ingredients)
- Scale (to weigh ingredients)
Step 2: Melt the Ingredients Together
After the beeswax is melted, add the shea butter, coconut oil, and lanolin. When all of the ingredients are combined and melted add the essential oils.
To mask the scent of the lanolin, add the essential oils to the amount of your liking. Add more essential oils for a stronger taste and scent (because the essential oils are derived directly from the plant, the taste becomes stronger as the scent gets stronger).
Continue to mix the ingredients until the essential oils are evenly distributed.
Step 3: Pour Into Containers
Empty the contents of the pot into a smaller measuring cup that is easy to poor from. Another good option is to use an old medicine dropper, but be sure to work quickly as the lip balm hardens as it cools.
Fill the containers to the brim and allow them to cool before you cap it.
Step 4: Finish and Enjoy!
Your Burt's Bees Lip Balm is now ready to use, gift, or sell!
