Fills 6 small tins or lip balm tubes.

So, I was really not paying attention (blame it on pregnancy brain, being tired, and two rambunctious boys running around at the same time!) and accidentally added 3 times the amount of beeswax I needed. Needless to say, the recipe was super hard and not useable! After it all hardened in the tins, I scooped it out with a spoon and melted it back down in the double boiler, adding more oils to complete the recipe. Now I have enough balm to give to EVERYONE for Christmas! It will literally fill a dozen or more tubes or tins.

How To Make Your Own Lip Balm

  1. Melt all the ingredients in double boiler (I don't have an official double boiler, so I use one smaller pot inside of a bigger pot of boiling water). It will take 5 minutes or so on low to medium heat.
  2. Pour directly from the pan into your tubes or tins and it will harden in about 5 minutes. Done!

Cleaning Up – I was able to get the pan clean with super hot, soap water and a good sponge.
I didn't want to go out searching in craft stores for lip balm tubes or tins, so I'm buying more from Amazon (click on the links to buy). I gave some to my sweet aunt for her birthday and she loved it! It was such a special way to show I cared about her without spending a ton of money.
