Winter Lip Balm

Though it is much more accurate using percentages and digital scales, we know there are lots of people who don't have accurate scales and forced to use volume measurements (which is somewhat inaccurate).  

Try to stick to the same level in each measure to strive for accuracy when measuring.

 

  1. Mix the colour into the Macadamia Oil and set aside. (It will look much darker at this point. When the balm sets it will become a translucent/creamy shade of the colour)

  2. Melt the Beeswax and the Coconut Oil in  a Pyrex jug in the microwave - it will become quite hot

  3. Add the liquid oils and blend together well

  4. Add the sweetener and then the lip flavour

  5. Place a few drops onto a metal spoon and place into freezer for a couple of minutes to harden so you can test the flavour and consistency of the finished balm. If you would like it more liquid, add a little more liquid oil, or if too soft, melt a little more beeswax after reheating the liquid oils to a similar temperature. Have a taste and adjust the flavour and sweetness as desired

  6. Pot up!


    Note on Stevia Drops:  Though natural, stevia is water soluble, not oil soluble.  To use stevia in lip balm once you have added the drops and stirred, the droplets will separate from the balm, however, the sweetness will be infused.  Pour carefully and discard the last portion of balm with the droplets in it.
