Rosemary Lip Balm 3


Cooling Rosemary Lip Balm

Cooling Rosemary Lip Balm

Rosemary is a lovely but potent scent. This lip balm makes me think of the holidays. When Christmas comes around there are always little rosemary trees in the front of the grocery store where I shop. This lip balm feels wonderful. It is a little firm but a smooth, silky feel when applied. When I first made this lip balm, it made me think of Vicks VapoRub. Be warned, this lip balm is a potent lip balm.

Here are the ingredients you will need for this recipe.

Ingredients
Olive Oil
Beeswax
Rosemary Essential Oil
Blue Oil Soluble Color

I place my lip balm jars or tubes into the refrigerator to cool. Do not place them in the freezer! We only want the lip balm to cool quickly not freeze instantly.

Measure beeswax and olive oil into a microwavable container. Heat until beeswax has almost melted. Stir the solution by hand until the remaining beeswax has melted. Add the Rosemary Essential Oil and Blue Oil Soluble

Color. Stir well.

For this batch I dragged a tooth pick through my oil soluble color. You will want to use a quantity sufficient (q.s.) amount of color for your batch. The amount of oil soluble color you use will change with the size of batch you will be making and the color of the oils. I did not need a Yellow Oil Soluble Color because my oils already had a deep yellow color to them. If you use white beeswax and light olive oil, to create that green color you would need both Blue Oil Soluble Color and Yellow Oil Soluble Color. Pour the liquid lip balm mixture into the cool lip balm containers. Allow lip balm mixture to cool. Cap and label. Enjoy this fantastic lip balm!
