Do you use lip balm more frequently in the winter than other times of the year? Use orange and Peppermint Lip Balm to make a festive lip balm. My pals used to do that all the time when I lived somewhere with chilly winters (I now reside in Florida). I also observed that people adore receiving presents of homemade aromatherapy items. (Okay, I saw that way back when!) So I reasoned, why not create a recipe for holiday lip balm and distribute it to friends? With the addition of vanilla, citrus, chocolate, and Peppermint Lip Balm, I made a lip balm. It tastes good! This Christmas lip balm has a slight cooling effect thanks to the Peppermint Lip Balm, which is a wonderful touch. Additionally, it is a restorative, preventative mix that can help you stay healthy. About 18 tubes are produced using this recipe. (Enough for sharing!) Urban Xtracts sells tubes of lip balm. Additionally, you may get a lip balm tube tray that keeps the tubes upright and minimizes spills when you pour hot liquid balm into them.
Success With Homemade Peppermint Lip Balm: Pro Tips
The “Stovetop Melting Method” is the first tip. I like to melt the components using the “Stovetop Melting Method.”
Place a glass measuring cup in a soup pot with water that is gently boiling and approximately 1/4 of the way full. Make sure the handle of the measuring cup hangs over the edge of the pot so it doesn’t get too hot. You will put your ingredients in the measuring cup, and the water will warm the glass so that they will melt.
Prepare Your Lip Balm Tubes (Tip #2).
Prepare every open lip balm tube so that it may accept hot liquid. Place the tubes inside a lip balm tube tray if you have one. (When it’s time to pipette or pour the hot liquid, you’ll be so glad this step is through!)
3. Measuring The Materials In Advance.
The best scale for this is a kitchen scale. To avoid measuring the weight of the bowl as well, tare your scale.
Fourth Tip: Pipettes Are Best.
I prefer to use a plastic pipette similar to the ones you used in chemistry class to transfer the melted liquid to the tubes. In this manner, I avoid attempting to pour from a big container into something with a little aperture.If you happen to have a funnel on hand, you can also use that.
Five: Enjoy Using Labels.
When I make seasonal Peppermint Lip Balm, I like to create humorous labels. Your lip balm can have a name, a list of its ingredients, and entertaining stickers.
Peppermint Lip Balm With Mandarin And Peppermint
½ oz (14 gm) (14 gm) 12 oz. of beeswax (Cera flava) (14 gm) Theobroma cacao cocoa butter, 1 fl ounce (30 ml) Jojoba wax infused with vanilla (Simmondsia chinensis)
Citrus reticulata Mandarin Oil, 10 drops; Peppermint Oil, 10 drops (Mentha x piperita)
- lipstick tubes (about 18)
- one jar of CBD Peppermint Balm (optional)
- a number of little bowls (to measure your ingredients)
- cooking scale
- Glass stir stick (or a stainless steel spoon)
- funnel or a pipette made of plastic
- measure cup made of pyrex
- a cooking pot big enough to fit the Pyrex.
- Place a Pyrex measuring cup in a soup pot with 1/4 full of slowly boiling water to set up the “Stovetop Melting Method.” This serves as your temporary double boiler.
- Beeswax should be melted in the Pyrex.
- Add the jojoba oil blended with vanilla and stir until melted.
- When melted, add the cocoa butter and stir.
- Once the Pyrex has been taken from the heat, add your essential oils.
- To combine the ingredients, gently stir.
- Very gently pour the liquid into the CBD Peppermint Balm tubes.
- Remove the tubes from the tray as soon as the CBD Peppermint Balm are solid (this should take a few minutes), then carefully screw on the lids to prevent the essential oil from evaporating.
