Vegan Lip Balm KitVegan Lip Balm Kit

The Vegan Lip Balm Kit is a recipe that is silky and extremely moisturizing, like many other Nature’s Garden lip balm recipes. Since this lip care recipe includes various oils and butters that are soft and long-lasting, this is a perfect recipe for great lip care. Not only is this silky lip balm perfect for lip care, but this recipe is completely vegan! The lip balm recipe doesn’t use any products that are come from animals. Typically, lip balm recipes use beeswax, so we replaced this ingredient with candelilla wax. This alternative is plant based, but it is still just as great for your lips. Also, this kit creates twenty-four full tubes of vegan lip balm, so you will have plenty of lip balm with even some to share. So, this kit is all around perfect for anyone looking for a great lip balm that happens to have the additional bonus of being entirely vegan!

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Clean and Sanitize

You are going to want to make sure that you are completely prepared before you begin this project. So, you’ll need to gather and sanitize all the necessary ingredients and equipment. First, gather all of the equipment that you will need to complete this project. Also, sanitize your workspace and any other equipment. This will prevent potentially contaminating the lip balm and make the process easier to complete.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Setting up the Double BoilerVegan Lip Balm Kit Setting up the Double Boiler

Before you start make sure you know how to create a double boiler which will be used to melt your oils, waxes, and butters. You will need the two differently sized pots and a stove top. So, take the larger pot and add two or three inches of water. Then, place the smaller pot into the water. Place the double boiler on the stove and you’re ready to use! Once you have prepared your waxes, butters, and oils, place them in the smaller pot. You will then need to turn your oven on a low heat setting. Make sure that you keep a careful eye on the water level and make sure the ingredients don’t get too hot. You do not want to overheat the oils.

First, you will weigh out a few of the ingredients that will take longer to melt. So, retrieve a gram scale and tare out the weight of a bowl. Then, weigh the appropriate amounts of candelilla wax and cocoa butter into the bowl. After, transfer these ingredients to the small pot of the double boiler and turn on the stove top. While these ingredients are melting move on to the next step.

Next, you will weigh out the remaining oils for the recipe. So, tare out the bowl on the gram scale. Then, weigh out 37 grams of Coconut Oil 76, 35 grams of Castor Oil, and 1 gram of Vitamin E Oil into the bowl. After most of the candelilla wax and cocoa butter has melted, add this mixture of oils to the smaller pot in the double boiler. Make sure that your oils don’t burn as you wait for everything to be melted. Finally, once everything has melted, you can remove the melted oils from the stove top and transfer them into your bowl.

Vegan Lip Balm Kit Adding Optional IngredientsVegan Lip Balm Kit Adding Optional Ingredients

Now, you are at a point where you can add in some optional ingredients. These ingredients could be flavoring, lip tint, or stevia sweetener. If you choose to flavor your lip balm, then add 20 drops of the provided Strawberry Sorbet Flavoring Oil. However, you could leave your lip balm plain if you’d prefer. Also, you can add a bit of the Stevia Sweetener to your lip balm. Although it won’t dissolve, adding a small amount shouldn’t be too noticeable. If you choose you can also crush it up a bit to create a finer powder. You also have the option to include a bit more of the provided sweetener to provide a lip scrub feel. Although you can add a lip tint to your melted oils, there is no lip tint included in the kit. After you decide the specifics of your lip balm you’re ready for the next step.

Finally, you are ready to transfer the melted lip balm to your lip balm tubes. You will want to move quickly to prevent the lip balm from setting up before you are able to transfer. So, take your plastic transfer pipettes and move the melted lip balm into the tubes. Make sure you allow your lip balm time to set up before you move the tubes or add the cap. So, after the lip balm entirely sets up your lip balm is ready to use!

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.
