Today I would love to share with you my peppermint lip balm recipe! It took me a little while to get the perfect creamy lip balm and all of the right ingredients that keep those lips soft and smooth but I finally figured it out and I am excited to share with you!
1st of all you are gonna need some of these utensils…
-stove top or hot plate
Then these ingredients…
-shea butter .75 oz
-bees wax .5oz
-coconut oil .25 oz
-sweet almond oil .25 oz
-vitamin E (you can use the capsules) 2 caps
-tea tree essential oil 2 drops (optional)
-peppermint essential oil 2.5 ml
-lip safe colorant (optional)
-lip balm tubes 11 (I use the oval ones from wholesalesuppliesplus.com)
Okay now lets get started! Measure your shea butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil and add it to the pot. Be sure to attach your candy thermometer to the side of the pot so you can keep an eye on the temp. Heat on low 175 – 180 stirring frequently. Hold temp for 20 minutes (Try not to over heat). Next measure your bees wax and add it to the pot, then add your vitamin E (just poke a hole in the capsule and squeeze into the pot). When wax is melted remove from heat. Add essential oils and colorant. Stir till colorant blends in (about 1-2 minutes). Now pour into tubes and let cool in the fridge for 1 hour before capping! Hazzah your done! You have now made your very own peppermint lip balm!
If your like me you will want to make them look cute by decorating some labels. I buy mine in bulk at onlinelabels.com but you can always find a small pack at an office supply store near you and print them from your computer at home.
