5) Rose Essential Oil - 3 drops
6) Calamine powder with zinc oxide - 1/8 tsp
7) Vitamin E oil - 1 Tablet
Step 2: Make Your Own Rose Powder
If you are buying rose powder you can skip this step.
Select fresh and heaven smelling roses from market that can used in beauty products (not all roses can do that) Here I used a variety called Paneer rose which are very famous for its uses in beauty products. In fact its edible too. Bought it, sun dried it by keeping in medium sun light for two days, covered with white cloth. As my country is very sunny, didn't wanna burn the roses.
They ready if they break when you press in your hands, i.e., it will be crisp
Put in blender and grind them well. until nice powder.
Filter out the nice powder and residue
You can use the residue as face pack or in your customised soap too
Why rose powder?
It nourish, soften and lighten your lips naturally
You can use beetroot powder also
Step 3: Base Ingredients
Add beeswax, Shea butter and coconut oil. These are the base ingredients of lip butter you can customise the ingredient quantity to get the texture you want glossy or creamer or just between them. My ingredients quantity gives just between them texture.
Step 4: Melt & Combine
Melt it using double boiler method, since my quantity is less, I have kept in small glass container and place in medium hot water and stir using spatula to combine all together. Once done remove from heat.
(Optional) Insert the spoon and check for the texture
Tip: Try using vessel with beak, easy for pouring
Step 5: Magic Ingredients
Add your rose powder (or beet root powder) this will give little tint to your lip butter with extra benefits so that a bonus, Poke the vitamin E tablet and add the oil and rose essential oil. Adding Calamine zinc oxide powder will protect your lips from sun. oh yeah !! Its SPF
Mix them well and pour into Empty lip balm tubes. Its little tricky to pour correctly first time, you may use dropper for that. My outcomes gave 3 full lip balm tubes
