  • Lip Balm
  • 1. Empty contents of sunflower oil and beeswax beads into measuring cup. Microwave in 30 second intervals and stir until beads are completely melted. (Note: Measuring cup and contents are hot.)
  • 2. If making two colors, divide mixture into two separate measuring cups. Add flavoring one drop at a time and stir until desired fragrance is achieved.
  • 3. Add color powder in small amounts and stir until desired color is achieved.
  • 4. Use pipette or dropper to transfer lip balm to tube or canister rims. (Note: If pipette gets clogged with dried balm, run two fingers down side of pipette while pushing excess balm out of opened end.) Let mixture settle for several minutes, then add another drop to prevent holes in center.
  • 5. Let mixture set for 30 minutes before placing lids on. Decorate and adhere labels as desired.
  • Lip Gloss
