Raspberry lemonade lip balm

Ingredients:

1/3 Cup freeze dried raspberries
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
1 Tablespoon beeswax 
3 Drops lemon essential oil
Tubes or containers to store your lip balm


Directions:

1. Crush about 1/3 cup freeze dried raspberries into a fine powder. They’ll add fantastic flavor along with a pretty tint to the lip balm. I used a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds to keep a smooth texture.


2. Use a double boiler process to melt down the bees wax and coconut oil. Stirring constantly will help speed up the melting process.


3. Remove from the heat and add in the essential oil and powdered raspberries. Have the tubes standing with caps off and ready to fill as soon as everything is mixed together.


4. Fill the medicine dropper from the bowl and quickly, but carefully, fill one tube at a time. The raspberry powder will settle a little bit to the bottom of the bowl (and tubes) make sure when you’re drawing the liquid up into the medicine dropper that you are also collecting some of the raspberry. Continue filling each tube until the mixture if used up. You’ll notice that the powder is settling to the bottom of the tubes, if you prefer you can quickly cap each tube after filling and flip it over and continue turning to try to keep an even coloring. I loved the ombre look to this process and happily let it settle!


*Using 2 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of bees wax along with the powdered raspberries and essential oil, this recipe made exactly 5 tubes that were 5ml/1 teaspoon each. Adding a little more bees wax make a larger batch. I used a medicine dropper to fill each tube quickly and mess free.

    Thank you very much for this recipe. I want to make some of your homemade raspberry lemon balm and I have a question. I’ve never made any homemade balms or face cream etc. Do you have to melt the coconut oil first to measure 2 tablespoons and the same for the beeswax to measure 1 tablespoon? Thank you.

    Should this be stored in a cool place? I know coconut oil returns to its liquid form if it gets too hot… does that apply with this recipe?

    How long is the lip balm good for once you’ve done the recipe? Does it need to be restore in a cool place or not? Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    I have been told that you cannot use citrus essential oils in plastic containers. Do you have any problem with the oils “eating” your containers? I already have my containers and I don’t want to re-buy them in glass!

    Hey, just a quick question, does this stain your lips afterwards?

    This is an awesome recipe and I can’t wait to try it. Is there any other ingredient that could make up for the bees wax? Apart from that this idea is amazing!!!
