12 grams Candelilla Wax
44 grams Coconut Oil 76
28 grams Castor Oil
28 grams Cocoa Butter
1 gram Vitamin E Oil
20 drops of Rootbeer Flavoring Oil (optional)
Stevia Sweetener (optional)
Lip Tint Color (optional)
1. Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.
2. Weigh out the proper amounts of candelilla wax and cocoa butter.
3. In a double boiler, melt your candelilla wax and cocoa butter since they take longer than the other oils in this recipe to melt.
4. Weigh out the proper amounts of coconut oil 76, castor oil, and vitamin E.
5. Add those oils to your melted candelilla wax/cocoa butter mixture, and allow to melt thoroughly. Be careful not to get your oils/butters too hot or you will ruin them. Remove from heat.
6. Add flavoring/lip tint color/sweetener to your mixture if you choose. These are all optional. Hint: Crush stevia into a fine powder, and sprinkle a tiny portion of it into the melted lip balm and mix well. The stevia will not dissolve, it will simply suspend itself in the lip balm.
7. Place your mixture into lip balm pots using the transfer pipettes. Plastic pipettes work better than glass pipettes because they do not cool down your mixture as quickly as glass pipettes do. For a whipped butter look, whip your ingredients while they are beginning to set up with a mixer, then spoon into lip balm pots.
8. Allow to cool at room temperature.
