Coffee Lip Balm 5


I love our Lip Solutions, but sometimes I want more than just Coffee Flavor. If other java junkies are like me, I think they would want to know how to add Coffee Butter to the Lip Solutions and have it work. This lip balm will be firmer than our Lip Solutions, but I’ve found that most people who want the Coffee Butter in the lip balm want a firmer lip balm anyway.

Collect needed items:

Jar of Lip Solutions of your choice (I’m using the Shea Lip Solutions)
Lip Balm Tubes and Caps or container of your choice
Beeswax
Coffee Butter
Scale

To be added to the Lip Solutions:
1 oz Coffee Butter
1 oz Beeswax

Place the jar of Lip Solutions on the scale and tare. Add the Coffee Butter and Beeswax to the jar. Microwave in short burst to melt the Lip Solutions, Coffee Butter and Beeswax. Once the lip balm is melted completely, fill lip balm tubes.

Notes:

The Coffee Butter adds a great scent to the lip balm. You can add Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil to sweeten the lip balm if you don’t want to add any other flavors. If you would like to add more flavor, you can add Coffee Flavor Oil for a Java Java Lip Balm, Vanilla Banilla Flavor Oil for a Vanilla Cappuccino Lip Balm, or any other flavor you would like to add. It’s your imagination and you are the barista, so have fun!

About Andee

I’m a twenty something soap snob. I’ve grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won’t tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    kathyjane-
    My batch made 77 tubes and a partial. It will vary a little from batch to batch because sometimes spills happen!

      Generally it is a wax issue. This means, almost always, that the amount of wax is too much for the tubes to handle. It happens when stiffer waxes are used instead of more pliable waxes. Candelilla, Carnauba, Stearic Acid, and even Soy Wax can cause this.
