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
Before 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
First, 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
Next, 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
Now, 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
Then, 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
Now, 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
Next, 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.
