Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe Tutorial

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 3
Step 1
:  Begin with cleaning your work area.  Also, clean and sanitize the supplies you will be using.  I would also suggest wearing a Natures Garden apron to protect your clothing, as well as a hair net and gloves.  Set out your lip balm pots, so they are ready to be filled.

 

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 4
Step 2: 
Once you are prepared, get your scale out.  In a microwave safe bowl, weigh out 3.35 ounces of our all natural lip balm base.

Step 3:  Next, in your microwave, melt the lip balm base.  You want to melt it slowly.  We suggest heating it in 30 second intervals, stirring as you heat it.  Heat only until your base is liquefied.  I should note, another option is to melt the base in a double boiler.  However, we chose to use our microwave.

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 5

Step 4:  Now, in the second bowl melt your white chocolate wafers.  We use seven chocolate wafers.  The chocolate is used as a sweetener in our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe.  Again, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.

 

 

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 6

Step 5:  Once both the base and chocolate are melted, add the chocolate to the base.  Stir well to incorporate the white chocolate in your lip balm.
