How to Make Lip Balm
Materials and Tools:
1/8-cup plus 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
2 tablespoons beeswax pearls
¼-teaspoon vitamin E oil (or a couple of vitamin E capsules)
30cc to 45cc of colored pigment (optional)
1 to 3 drops of fragrance oil for lip balm
six ½-ounce containers
1. Combine almond oil and beeswax in a microwave-safe measuring cup. Microwave the mixture on "high" for one to two minutes until melted.
2. Add honey and vitamin E oil and stir.
3. Dissolve pigment in a small bit of oil and add to the melted mixture.
4. Blend in fragrance oil.
5. Pour into tiny containers and let harden for about 15 minutes. Replace lids.
Note: Solid perfume can be made using the same process by adding a bit more scent in the form of essential oil or fragrance oil and leaving color pigment out.
