How to Handmade Lip Balms

Handmade Lip Balms for Beginner 


1) Digital scale
2) 250ml Break x 1
3) Saucepan 
4) Kitchen Thermometer
5) Metal / glass stirer (optional)
6) Alcohol swaps and tooth picks
7) 8 empty 5g lip balm tubes 
8) 30 holes Lipstick tray / holder (optional)

Ingredients :

25g Sweet Almond Oil
10g Beewax 
2 x VE capsules
5 drops of preferred essential oil


 Wrap alcohol swap around toothpick, sanitize every tube. After first use, open and turn over to wrap it around. One swap for two tubes.

  Get lip balm tubes ready in this "30 holes lipstick tray / holder."

Put a break on digital scale, Weigh 25g of Sweet Almond Oil and add in 10g of beewax.
Melt beewax over a double boiled method. Keep stiring during the process. 

 Remove break from saucepan, using kitchen thermometer to check mixture temperature. As soon as it drops to 60℃, add in Vitamin E (open VE capsules) and essential oil. 

In a very quick while, till tubes to 3/4 full.

As soon as the mixture harden, a hole in the center will be formed. By this time you may need to return break to saucepan to keep mixture warm. Get ready for the second filling.

Filling gently, you may perhaps slightly overfilled.

Wait about 30 minutes, when they are fully hardened, cap them and store in fridge. (I do store them in fridge)

There are two types of lip balm tubes, the lean one is 4g, the short one is 5g.

Put on a sticker, they are ready to be sold! 

Cleaning :

It can be very hassle in this part, there will be some stick in the break, if you would like to keep them, you may scrape off and melt them again in saucepan, pour them in a small container, it is good for soothing crack skin in fingers and heels. 

Or what I did is to clean the extra wax with tissue. Fill the saucepan with more water, put a few drops of detergent in it, leave the break laying in the saucepan, turn it once awhile to make sure all areas is covered. And remove and wash it with sponge.
