Instructions

Weigh all ingredients except the Vitamin E Acetate and Cheesecake Flavor into your microwave-safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the oils have been melted, add the Vitamin E Acetate and Cheesecake Flavor. Once all of the ingredients have been mixed together, I added a touch of White Lip Balm Color to the melted lip balm. Stir until all of the color has been incorporated into the mixture. Set your rectangular lip balm tins out to pour the lip balm into them. This lip balm can cool quickly, so make sure you don't dawdle in pouring. You may have to reheat the lip balm to continue pouring.

Comments

Each tin held between 8 to 9 grams of lip balm and still was able to be closed without scraping off the top surface. I filled 12 to 13 tins with each 100 gram batch.

Yield
