Basic Method For Making Lip Balms

Posted on


Lip balms are used to moisturise and protect the lips. They are especially beneficial if the lips are dry and cracked.

With the use of natural ingredients lips can be cared for and protected without the need for repeated applications throughout the day, as is the case with lip balms produced from petroleum-based products.

Natural lip balms are made using solid fats and waxes, vegetable oils and essential or flavour oils. The recipe can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual. The method is as follows:

1. Heat all ingredients together, with the exception of the essential/flavour oils, in a ceramic/glass container which has been placed in a double boiler.

2. Melt completely while stirring.

3. When all the ingredients have melted, add the essential/flavour oils.

4. Pour into lip balm pots or cylinders, and leave to set. In the case of cylinders, the mixture will contract with cooling, so pour the mixture up to 75% of the cylinder, leave for ten minutes, then pour in the remainder. (you will also have to reheat your mixture in the double boiler at this stage).
