A few other tips to share from my experience making this: the consisitency seems to turn out best when it’s heated slower. I made a few batches and if I used a warm bowl and the oil, butter & wax heated quickly, I didn’t like the consistency of the lip balm as much. Also, you just need to use a 1:1:1 ratio for the coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax – using 1 teaspoon of each will yield about 1 tin container. Use around 2 tablespoons of each to make a batch of 10-12. The amount of oil used will depend on how big a batch you are making – use 2-3 drops per teaspoon of the other ingredients.DIY Lip Balm
Place the coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax in a small glass bowl. (Read above for specifics on how much to use of each). Set the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir until all are melted. Remove the pan from heat, but keep the bowl over the pan – the mixture will start to harden quickly, so keep it warm. Add in a couple drops of oil and stir. (You can dip your finger in the mixture, let it cool for a few seconds and check the scent to see if you’d like to add more oils). Use a pipette or dropper and fill tins. Allow to cool for about 1 hour or until firm.
