Lip Balm Stick Recipe

Here is the recipe for a lip balm in a twist up tube that I promised a few people I would put up.  We did this at a recent workshop at Bermondsey Fayre. Its really important to let the mixture cool slightly and put the tubes in a tray of cold water when you fill them, otherwise the mixture will leak out of the bottom before it has time to set!

Spearmint Lip Balm Stick (10×4.5g tubes)

  • 14g Beeswax
  • 10g Cocoa Butter
  • 30ml Almond Oil
  • 20ml  Jojoba Oil
  • 10 drops spearmint essential oil or flavouring of choice

Melt all ingredients in a double boiler. Place tubes in a tray of cold water. Fill ¾ , cool slightly then top up. Leave to set before putting lids on.

Tubes can be found at The Soap Kitchen or Gracefruit
