Yield: 15 sticks

Equipment

Materials

  • 2 Tbsp Beeswax organic, unbleached
  • 2 Tbsp Shea butter organic
  • 2 Tbsp Coconut oil organic
  • 1/4 tsp Vitamin E oil (optional)
  • 5 drops Essential oil(s) I like lemongrass

Instructions

  • Boil water in a medium pot, then add your double boiler
  • Add beeswax to the double boiler, stirring occasionally with a chopstick until melted
  • Add the coconut oil and shea butter to the double boiler, stirring again until melted
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vitamin E oil and essential oils
  • Carefully pour into the empty lip balm tubes (my double boiler has a pour spout, which makes it simple!)
  • The contents will shrink slightly as it cools, so I save a little extra in my double boiler to top off the tubes a few minutes later.
