Make Your Own Lip Balm

melting
Melting down all of the ingredients in a ‘double boiler’ of sorts. A bowl over a pot of boiling water.

It took awhile for the beeswax to melt down. The Beeswax Pellets would probably be easier to melt down.

I used a dropper (found here) to fill the tubes individually.

Arial view of little tubs (found here)….think Carmex….only this was a FAIL. Carmex is soft. This balm gets soft from the warmth of your lips. You can’t get to your lips with the little tub so I have to pop these out and melt them down again.
