- 1.5 oz avocado oil
- .5 oz coconut oil
- 1.5 oz beeswax
- 2 – 3 ml of flavor oil
- 1 ml vitamin E oil
- pinch of lip safe mica (I used merlot sparkle, this item is optional)
- 20 lip balm tubes
- heat safe container (or double boiler)
First combine the avocado oil, coconut oil and beeswax in the heat safe container and melt.
Once melted allow to cool for two to three minutes then add the flavor oil and vitamin E oil and mix well. Allow the mix to cool to around 135 degrees F and add the lip safe mica if using.
Pour into the lip balm tubes and allow to cool.
Clean the outside of the tubes with a cotton ball wet in alcohol and place the cap on. Mother’s Day is right around the corner, so I made a simple label. These luxurious cherry berry lip balms are now ready to gift.
