Homemade Lip Balm Kits Melting the Lip Balm Base
First, we are going to melt the lip balm base. Take the lid off of the lip balm base jar that you’ve been given. Now, put the jar without the lid into your microwave. You will want to heat your lip balm base in increments of 30 seconds. After this small amount of time, take the jar out and determine if it needs another 30 seconds. At this time, stir the lip balm base. Then, if needed, put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. The time that you will need to microwave will depend on the strength of your particular microwave. Once all of the lip balm base is liquid you will be ready for the next step.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Tinting Your Lip Balm Base
Next, you will add the lip tint to your melted lip balm base. The color of your lip balm tint will vary between different kits, so you may not get the same shade each time. However, in the kits used for this blog, we had the Prissy Pink Lip Tint. You will want to add several drops of the lip tint with one of your provided pipettes. If you want a lighter shade, then add fewer drops. If you want to create a darker shade, then you may want to add quite a few more drops of the colorant. You can add a few drops and mix it quickly to decide on the shade. Since it will dry slightly different color you can place a drop on a paper plate and see the shade you will get in the end. Overall, the amount of lip tint that you add depends on your own personal preference.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Optional Sweetening Step
Now, you have the option to add in some powdered stevia sweetener. If you want your lip balm to be a bit of a gritty texture similar to a lip scrub, then you will want to include this step in your process. The added sweetener will not dissolve and will be suspended in your mixture. Those that would like to create this lip scrub sort of texture, will want to add a fourth of the packet into your mixture. If you are dividing your mixture into two portions, then you will want to add about an eighth to either one or each of your mixtures. However, if you don’t want any lip scrub feeling you don’t have to add the sweetener at all.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Flavoring the Lip Balm Base
Then, you are going to add the lip balm flavoring to your mixture. There are two different ways you can do this step. Either split your mixture into two or make all of the lip balm products the same. If you are keeping your mixture in one bowl, then you will want to pick one of your two flavorings. Add the entire 6 ml bottle of your chosen flavoring to your lip balm base mixture. Now, mix and you are ready for the next step. However, you can use a bit of both if you’re are indecisive or like each of your flavorings equally. If you are using both, then you will want to split your mixture in half into two different bowls. In one add half of your first flavoring and in the other bowl add half of the second flavoring. Now, mix a both of your bowls.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Shimmer and Shine
Next, it is time to add a bit of mica dust to make your lip balm sparkly and pretty! Either take your single batch or your divided batch and add some of the dust. Depending on how sparkly you want it to be, you can add more or less. You don’t need to add all of the mica powder given in your kit, but adding quite a bit shouldn’t hurt your finished product.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Adding the Lip Balm to the Containers
Finally, you are going to add the lip balm mixture to your various lip balm tubes and pots. If you have one single batch, take one of your clean pipettes to transfer the lip balm to the containers. You may want to be quick as your lip balm may start to set up. On the other hand, those that have divided their mix into two parts can use the pipettes that were used for the flavoring to transfer the mixture to the containers.
Homemade Lip Balm Kits Using Your Lip Balm
Now, just let the homemade lip balm set up at room temperature. It will setup pretty quickly and be ready to use soon! Once they setup, place a lid on each container or lip balm tube. You can now use your lip balm. Simply spread a little bit of your lip balm on your lips. We hope that you enjoy our homemade lip balm kit. Once you make your lip balm, we’d love to see pictures.
