Mmm! Mmm! Mmmmmmm!!!!
I?ve got a yummy one for you guys today!
It?s the easiest little lip balm recipe in the most delicious flavor- root beer float! Send your taste buds soaring while your lips soften from the nourishing blend of coconut oil and vitamin E.
It comes together in minutes and believe me, your lips will thank you!
2 TBS. Coconut Oil
1 TBS. Vitamin E Oil
1 Tsp. Beeswax
.25 oz. Lip Balm Jars
Combine the coconut oil, vitamin e oil, and beeswax in a microwave-safe dish. Melt by heating in short increments and stirring in between until you?ve achieved a smooth, clear mixture.
Using a pipette, add the flavor oil by drops. You can adjust this amount to suit your taste, but start by adding several drops, stirring, and adding more until you?ve reached your desired flavor. To decide if I wanted more flavor oil, I dripped a tiny amount on my finger and rubbed it on my lip to determine the amount of flavor present.
Stir well to be sure that the flavor oil has blended seamlessly into the lip balm mixture. At first the flavor oil will look separated. As you stir, the base and flavor oil will come together.
Carefully transfer the finished lip balm mixture into lip balm jars. I simply used the pipette to transfer the mixture without creating a mess since the jars are so small. It worked great!
Allow the lip balms to cool and harden completely before use. They set dark, but the color doesn?t transfer to the skin when using so don?t worry about dark lips!
To package. I placed two jars of lip balm in a Kraft paper box and finished each box with a printed Kraft label. I think they turned out pretty cute! 🙂
