Ingredients & Equipment

Candy Cane Lip Balm Recipe #handmade #holiday #gift

Melt the oil and waxes in the double boiler. Remove from heat, add essential oils, and stir well.

Line up lip balm tubes on a level surface and carefully pour the melted oil and wax into each tube, filling only halfway (if you pour it all at once you may get a hole in the top of your lip balm once it cools).

It really helps if you have a double boiler where the top pot has a pour spout. If not, you can transfer the hot liquid into a measuring cup with a spout for easier pouring. Once the half full lip balm has set, top up the rest of the tube. If you still get an uneven top when the balm has cooled completely, you can use a heat gun or lighter to level it out. Just be sure not to melt the tube!

    I find using 3 ml droppers work fantastic to transfer into tube. Thanks for sharing!
