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.

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Melting Ingredients

Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Kit Melting IngredientsNext, you will melt your weighed ingredients in your newly created double boiler. 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.
