Though it is much more accurate using percentages and digital scales, we know there are lots of people who don't have accurate scales and forced to use volume measurements (which is somewhat inaccurate).
Try to stick to the same level in each measure to strive for accuracy when measuring.
- 3 tsp Coconut Oil
- 5 tsp Castor Oil
- 3 tsp Macadamia Oil
- 6 tsp Jojoba Oil
- 2 tsp White Beeswax
- 3 tsp Wheatgerm Oil
- Up to ½ tsp Lip Flavour to taste
Melt the Beeswax and the Coconut Oil in a Pyrex jug in the microwave - it will become quite hot so do use a pot mitt.
Add the liquid oils and stir together well.
Once the mixture has cooled a little, add the sweetener and then the lip flavour.
Place a few drops onto a metal spoon and place into freezer for a couple of minutes to harden so you can test the flavour and consistency of the finished balm. If you would like it more liquid, add a little more liquid oil, or if too soft, melt a little more beeswax after reheating the liquid oils to a similar temperature. Have a taste and adjust the flavour and sweetness as desired.
