Step 1. Carefully transfer one bag of the pre-measured beeswax pellets to a glass cup. Heat 4- 6 cups of water in a pot. Place the glass cup with the beeswax pellets in the hot water. Heat on low. The double boiler you have just made will allow the beeswax to melt safely.

Step 2. Once the beeswax has completely melted, add one bag of cocoa butter and one bottle of grapeseed oil to the cup. Stir the mixture thoroughly. Make sure all the ingredients have completely melted together.

 

Step 3. Want some flavor? Add the macaron flavor oil or the summer peach flavor oil to the cup. Stir the mixture thoroughly. Make sure all the ingredients have completely melted together.

Step 4. Turn off the heat and pick up the cup with a dish towel carefully. Use a pipette to transfer the mixture into the tubes. You will be able to fill 12 tubes.
** If you would like to add more color at any point, you may add a small dab of your favorite lipstick and melt it into the other ingredients & stir the mixture thoroughly. **
** If the mixture begin to solidify in the pipette, simply put the glass cup back to the pot and warm the mixture up again. **

Step 5. Allow the lip balms to cool completely. You can design your own lip balm labels or do a happy dance while waiting! Then, put caps and labels on the tubes. 

Step 6. Repeat the steps above for batch #2 with another flavor oil.  Enjoy!
