To start with, you will need to gather the following materials:
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp. cocoa butter
- 2 tbsp. shredded beeswax
- 2 tbsp. Coco Treasure Unrefined Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
- If the butter and the beeswax are still in their solid block form, chop them coarsely. Otherwise, skip this step and proceed to the next.
- Grab a small Pyrex glass or mason jar. Measure out equal parts of butters and beeswax and put them in your chosen container – glass or jar. Slowly add coconut oil.
- Prepare a double boiler and fill it with 1 to 2 inches of water. Submerge your preferred container in the water with the mixture inside. Heat until the content melts. Make sure to keep an eye in the mixture because water might boil it over. You don’t want that to happen.
- Once melted, remove from heat and add in the vanilla extract. Be careful because the jar might be very hot. Stir slowly to combine.
- Pour the mixture into a tub or tube lip balm container.
- Allow to cool. For faster results, place inside the refrigerator for at least an hour.
- Your lip balm is good to go. Enjoy!
Of course, you can modify the ingredients depending on your personal preferences. You can add several drops of your favorite essential oils to improve its therapeutic effect.
