This fun bronze-tinted shimmery sun kissed lip balm is perfect for summer. With a fantastic cocoa peppermint scent, great glide, and some shimmer and shine, I’m loving having this in my purse this summer.

A base of beeswax, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil gives your lips a lovely dose of moisture along with a summery glow.

A touch of castor oil adds extra shine to this lip balm, and when paired with a touch of bronze mica, this lip balm lends a shimmery sun kissed shine.

With a quick melt and pour assembly you can easily whip up a fistful of these lip balms for gifts, or to stash in ever conceivable spot you might ever need a quick dose of tingly moisture for your kisser. Brilliant!

Sun-Kissed Lip Balm

8g | 0.28 beeswax
12g | 0.42oz virgin coconut oil
10g | 0.35oz cocoa butter
4g | 0.14oz castor oil
16g | 0.56oz sweet almond oil
10–15 drops peppermint essential oil
1–2 dashes (1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon) bronze mica (as you like it, basically) (I use these spoons to measure out tiny amounts like “dashes”)

Combine the beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter, castor oil, and sweet almond oil in a heat resistant glass measuring cup. Place the measuring up in a pot of barely simmering water to melt the oils.

Once melted, remove the oils from the heat. Let cool a bit, and stir in the peppermint essential oil and bronze mica. Stir the mixture with a flexible silicone spatula until it has cooled enough to be thick enough to support the weight of the mica. Quickly decant into lip balm tubes. They’re ready to label (I love these cute labels) and use once they’ve set up.

Fills 8 lip balm tubes.
