I love the feeling of buying all the raw materials to develop my own product - DIY as they say.
There is so much power and pride when creating your own product to your own specs - makes me feel like a chemist in the lab, lol.
How to Make Lip Balm
The beauty of this simple product is that it only contains 3 ingredients; beeswax, coconut oil and flavor oils.
The rule of thumb is to use 2 parts coconut oil to 1 part beeswax, so a ratio of 2:1.
Coconut oil doesn't have its own scent so if you end up on using more to find a texture that you like, you're going to want to up the use rate of the lip balm flavor oils.
