Acai Blackberry Lip Balm

What you’ll need:

-8 TBS Coconut Oil
-3 TBS Beeswax (white or yellow will work)
-1.5 TBS Honey
-30 drops of Acai Blackberry Flavoring
Empty Aluminum Lip Balm Tins
Rectangle Lip Balm Labels (to print on)

How to do it:

Step 1- Place the coconut oil, beeswax and honey in a double boiler (or glass bowl sitting on top of a saucepan filled with about an inch or two of simmering water). Heat slowly until everything has melted together.

Step 2- Remove mixture from heat, and add the acai blackberry flavoring. Stir until blended.

Step 3- Pour the mixture into the empty lip balm containers, place covers on, and let the tins sit to cool. The mixture will firm as it cools and turn into the typical lip balm texture.

Step 4- Print the labels for your lip balm tins. These are for YOU so name them appropriately! Make beautiful designs for your labels so that every time you pull that little tin out of your little black clutch, everyone will be asking where you got it!
