Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

Make sure that you sanitize both your equipment and your workspace before starting this project. While this is a simple task, performing it before you begin will make the process easier. First, clear off anything you won’t be using from your workspace and sanitize the cleaned area. This will make sure that you have room to work and prevent potential contamination. Next, make sure that your equipment, such as pots or bowls, are sanitized. This prevents possible contamination of your lip balm pots.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Creating the Double Boiler

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Creating the Double BoilerBefore starting you should get your double boiler prepared. This is done to prevent the oils and butters from burning. Although this is used to prevent the oils from being ruined, the water could boil too high and get into the pot. So, make sure that you keep a careful watch on the boiling water. Now, retrieve both your larger pot and your smaller pot. Fill your larger pot with a couple inches of water and place this pot on the stove top. Then, place the smaller pot into the larger pot of water.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Weighing and Melting the Butters and Oils

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Weighing and Melting the Butters and OilsFirst, you will be weighing out the butters, oils, and beeswax for your lip balm. Find your scale and tare the weight of the bowl. Now, weigh out the 26 grams of beeswax, 47 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 20 grams of Shea Butter, 23 grams of Cocoa Butter, and 1 gram of Vitamin E Oil. After you weigh out all these ingredients you can put this mixture into the smaller pot of the double boiler. While you are melting these ingredients, make sure that you are keeping watch to avoid burning.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Stevia

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the SteviaNext, you are going to include the stevia in your oils. While your oils are melting, you will be preparing the sweetener. So, take the powdered stevia sweetener and crush the granules with a spoon. After you have crushed enough of your sweetener, place the stevia in the drawstring tea bag. Place your tea bag into the smaller pot of the melted oils and press on the bag to force the particles of stevia into the mixture. While this sweetener will not dissolve in oil, the particles that escape the tea bag will evenly disperse. This provides the lip balm with a sweetness, but the tea bag prevents the stevia from creating a scrub texture.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring Oil

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring OilNow, you will add the Strawberry Cheesecake Flavoring Oil to your melted butters and oils. First, remove the melted mixture from the stove top and transfer the liquid to your bowl. Next, use one of your disposable pipettes to add 20 drops of your flavoring to the melted mixture.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Base of the Lip Balm

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Base of the Lip BalmThen, you are going to add the base to your lip balm pots. This will be the bottom portion of the Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm. You will fill the lip balm pots almost to the top.  Leave about 1/8 of an inch from the top. It is important to make sure that you leave enough room to add the red strawberry topping later. So, take your melted mixture, disposable transfer pipettes, and fill the pots the appropriate amount. Also, it may be more helpful to uncap your lip balm pots before you begin filling, but you can uncap the pots as you go.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Provided Lip Tint

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Provided Lip TintNow, you are going to add the lip tint to your remaining lip balm mixture. Before you add this portion of the lip balm, make sure that you re-melt your remaining butter and oils to allow you enough time for you to work. Next, you will be adding the lip tint to the melted mixture in an amount you see fit to provide a bright red topping for your lip balm. Mix the lip tint thoroughly until the color is even.

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Top Layer            

Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Kit Adding the Top LayerNext, you will be adding the red colored lip balm to your lip balm pots. Before you add the red lip balm, make sure that the sides of the clear pots are cleaned off to make sure that the layers look clean. So, remove any of the lip balm on the sides above the bottom layer. Once you mix the lip tint into the melted butter and oils, you can pipette this mixture onto the partially filled lip balm pots. This will create an aesthetic and flavor of a small strawberry cheesecake.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

As always, you should make sure that you are fully prepared to create these amazing and lip softening lip balms. You will want to make sure that you have both clean equipment and enough working space to make the product inside your kit. First, clean all of the equipment you will need that is listed above and make sure that it is nearby. Keeping this equipment readily available will make this process go smoother and quicker. Second, make sure that you have your stove and counter top clean and ready to use. This will not only speed up the process, but help to reduce possible contamination. While this step seems simple, it is crucial for your product that everything is sanitized and ready to use.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Making a Double Boiler

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Making a Double BoilerBefore you begin, we need to make sure that you are comfortable with using a double boiler for melting. This method of melting various things, such as oils or chocolate, is done to reduce the chance of scorching the ingredients. Instead of specifically purchasing a double boiler, you can create something that performs similarly with two differently sized pots.

First, take the larger pot and fill it with water. This pot will sit directly on the stove to allow the water to boil. Next, the smaller pot will be set in the water of the larger pot. The ingredients that you want to melt will be placed into the smaller pot. Once you are ready to melt your ingredients, turn up the stove to boil the water. This will melt your ingredients at a safer temperature, but be sure that you stir periodically and make sure that you water doesn’t boil over. Now, you are ready to get started.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing Ingredients

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing IngredientsFirst, you will weigh two of your ingredients that will take a bit longer to melt. Retrieve the beeswax, mango butter, a bowl, and your scale. Now, tare the weight of the bowl from the scale. Individually weigh your 29 grams of the white beeswax and 17 grams of the mango butter into the bowl. Set this bowl aside for a moment, but not to far as you will use this mixture in the following step.

After you have the double boiler assembled turn on the stove to begin boiling the water of the large pot. Next, retrieve the bowl of white beeswax and mango butter. Empty this mixture into the small pot. Additionally, add approximately 4 to 6 discs of the chocolate wafers. The amount you add is a personal preference in flavoring, so add any amount you choose. Since these three ingredients will take longest to melt, these will be allowed to stay on the stove while the next few steps are done.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing the Remaining Oils

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Weighing the Remaining OilsNow, you are going to weigh out the remaining oils. Take another bowl, a scale, coconut oil 76, the avocado oil, and the vitamin E oil. Tare the weight of the bowl from the scale and weigh your ingredients. You will be weighing out 35 grams of coconut oil 76, 35 grams of avocado oil, and 1 gram of vitamin E oil.

Additionally, it is possible that your bottles of coconut oil 76 may be arrive in solid form, as its melting point is around room temperature. If this happens to occur, then you will need to melt the coconut oil 76 before weighing. You can either place the closed bottles into hot water or place the uncapped coconut oil 76 in the microwave with thirty second intervals to melt. Once everything is weighed into your bowl, temporarily set aside.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Combining Ingredients into the Double Boiler

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Combining Ingredients into the Double BoilerNext, you will be adding the mixture in the bowl to the double boiler. Hopefully, the mixture already in your double boiler has melted a bit. Now, you can add the coconut oil 76, avocado oil, and vitamin E oil mixture to your double boiler.  You will want to be observant and make sure that the ingredients in your double boiler don’t get too hot. If you feel that your ingredients are getting too hot, turn down the heat or lift the small pot for a moment or so. Finally, when the mixture has completely melted you can remove the small pot from the water.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm Tubes

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Filling the Lip Balm TubesLastly, you will transfer the mixture from the pot to the lip balm tubes. Take your transfer pipettes to move your mixture from the pot into the lip balm tubes. You will want to work fast because the mixture will begin to set up as it cools. If the mixture hardens in the pot, then you can reheat the mixture carefully. Additionally, the hardened mixture in the pipettes can be squeezed out into the pot for melting. You should have plenty of pipettes available, but cleaning out the pipettes that you can will help prevent you from running out too soon. Once you have filled all of your lip balm tubes you will need to leave them to set up. They shouldn’t take too long to cool, but make sure not to use or cap your finished products until they are at room temperature.
