3 Tablespoons organic coconut oil (I use this oil)
1 Tablespoon grated beeswax
Empty tubs or tubes of your choosing (I prefer these because they are more cost effective than tins)
¾ teaspoon tint (optional)
8-10 drops essential oil (optional)
Melt the coconut oil and beeswax in a double boiler on the stove. This does not take long. Stir until completely melted.
If you want to add essential oils or tint, add to the mixture on the stove.
Pour mixture into tubs or tubes.
Let cool for 45 minutes to an hour.
The melting process only takes a few minutes.
If you go with the lip balm sticks, you may need a funnel. I prefer small tubs, so pouring was easy.
I let it cool on the counter for about 45 minutes and it was ready to use!
