Hierbabuena Lip Balm

I’ve finally figured out how to make labels for my lip balm and I am ecstatic. More on that later, but for now, I’m celebrating the end of way too many months of printer problems by making an easy and wintery peppermint lip balm.

In the spreadsheet blow, make your own copy in google drive (“File” > “Make a copy” > “OK”). Enter the amount of lip balm (in grams) you want to make in the pink box and the spreadsheet will auto-calculate ingredient amounts for you.

The second tab, “Price,” will calculate price of the final product based on the ingredient sources that I use.

Don’t have coconut or avocado oils? You can swap them out for any oil you have that’s liquid at room temperature.

  1. Using a digital scale, measure the all the ingredients except for the essential oil ingredients in a pyrex measuring cup or heat-proof glass.
  2. Create a double boiler by placing the glass in a pan full of water and bringing the water to a boil. Cook until the beeswax has completely melted.
  3. Remove the glass from the heat, stir in the essential oil, and quickly pour the mixture into 4-5 4.25 g (.15 oz) lip balm tubes.
  4. Refrigerate for 5-10 minutes to allow the lip balm to set up.
