Making your own lip balm is pretty easy. Just heat up some oil and melt some beeswax in it and you've got it. Serously, that's all there is. However you can spice things up by puttin in some quality ingredients. Here's how I make my lip balms for Fitzpatrick Farm. I'm also providing a resource list of where to get all this stuff at the bottom. A list of my flavors and how to order my lip balm is down there too.
Here's a simple lip balm recipe, It's all by weight so get a scale
1 part wax
1 part cocoa butter
1 part soft nut butter
1 part liquid oil
Make sure it's deodorized or your balm will be chocolate scented/flavored
I chose this mango butter as my soft nut butter you can also use shea, or coconut, or some of each like the oils
If you want vitamin E you puncture the capsules and squeeze it in. If you have an oil based sunblock spray you can spray that in for a spf lip balm. (I tend not to)
To flavor it you can use essential oils or flavor oils.
And thats It you're ready to go.
