(Recipe provided by www.thesage.com)
There is nothing quite like applying a lip balm to keep the delicate skin of your lips soft and supple. There is even greater delight in knowing that you created that lip balm yourself. Today we have an exclusive recipe just for you. This recipe will make 55 tubes of lip balm, so if you are in dire need of stocking stuffers, look no farther! You can create an exceptional lip balm in a matter of twenty minutes. Your family and friends will be delighted and impressed. You can even host a lip balm making party! Let's get started.

This recipe features a number of exceptional ingredients designed to keep the skin baby soft during the bitter winter months. Shea Butter has long been used in the skin care industry and with its moisturizing properties, it is easy to see why! In this recipe, we use a High Melt Point Shea Butter so that the lip balm doesn't become overly soft while in pockets or close to heaters.

Castor Oil gives longevity and dreamy lip creaminess to the lip balm. No need to apply every five minutes with this recipe. It is designed to last on the lip without being heavy or waxy.

You can make an oil infusion with Green Tea or Chamomile Herbal Tea. These are optional but they add antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. That extra boost can do wonder for the lips.

128.13 grams High Melt Point Shea Butter
57.20 Castor Oil
2 tea bags Green Tea or Chamomile Herbal Tea (optional)
0.29 Spearmint Essential Oil

Needed to make:
A microwave safe container
A scale
Pipettes
Lip Balm Tubes
Lip Balm Filling Tray (optional)
This lip balm is made in two separate steps. Start by weighing the Castor Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until the oil is warm.

Add the Green Tea or Herbal Tea and allow it to sit for anywhere from 1-24 hours. Remove the tea bags. If you are not using tea to create an oil infusion, feel free to skip this step.

Add the remainder of your oils and heat gently. Once the oils have completely melted so that they are crystal clear, add the Spearmint Essential Oil and Natural Vanilla Oil. Stir well.

From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes or you can use a filling tray. Filling trays are a great time saver because you can fill fifty tubes at a single time! Since this recipe make fifty five tubes, this is a perfect option.

If you are going to pipette the lip balm into the tubes, fill the tube until you get a dome of liquid material at the top. Wax shrinks when it cools and doing this helps insure that you get a very pretty top. Fill all of your tubes making sure they are domed on the top before they cool. (You may need to reheat your lip balm during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.

That is it! You just made your first batch of natural, tasty lip balm. I wish cakes were this easy to make!
