Lip Care (1)

Cocoa Butter Minty Lip Balm


• 1 ½ parts cocoa butter
• 1 ½ parts grated beeswax
• 3 parts edible vegetable oil of your choice
• Spearmint and/or peppermint flavouring oil

(almond, apricot kernel, avocado, extra virgin olive, hemp seed, jojoba, kukui nut, macadamia nut and castor oil all work well, but keep in mind if you plan on selling lip balm or giving as a gift, that some people are allergic to nut oils).

Melt the cocoa butter and beeswax slowly and carefully in a microwave, or over a double boiler on the stove until melted.
Add oil and stir well. Add spearmint or peppermint flavouring oils, or both, a few drops at a time, to taste. Gently reheat if needed. Cool slightly before pouring into containers.
To test consistency, place a drop on a spoon and set in the refrigerator to cool for a few minutes. Test on your lips.
For a softer lip balm, add more oil.
For a harder lip balm, add more beeswax.

½ teaspoon of melted candle wax.
2 teaspoons of Olive Oil.
½ teaspoon of Shea Butter or you can also add Cocoa Butter.
½ teaspoon of Honey and any flavour of oil to taste.
1 vitamin E capsule to preserve the Lip Balm

Melt all together by means of waterbath (put in a cup & set in sink of hot water) and then put into a lip balm container.

Sweet Balm/Gloss


• 2 tsp beeswax
• 1 tsp honey
• 7 tsp castor oil or jojoba or sweet almond oil
• ⅛ tsp flavouring oil

Melt the oil and beeswax together in a little pan over low heat until the beeswax is melted.

Take off the stove and then add in your honey and whisk it all together.

When the mixture is nearly cool add in your flavour oil, mix it up again and then pour into your lip balm container.

Since this comes out to be more like a gloss you can always add more beeswax to it so that it is a little harder. Maybe another ½ tsp would do it.
