This silky smooth double mint lip balm marries strong, bright peppermint with soft, subtle spearmint, and adds a hint of spicy French rosemary for good measure.
It’s a simple lip balm, with a base of glossy coconut oil, moisturizing cocoa butter (USA / Canada), and soothing olive oil (pomace). Beeswax thickens everything up and gives it some staying power.
It comes together in a flash, giving you 10 tubes of minty goodness to share with your friends and family with just 15 minutes of effort.
Double Mint Lip Balm
10g | 0.35oz beeswax
12g | 0.42oz virgin coconut oil
7g | 0.25oz cocoa butter (USA / Canada)
19g | 0.67oz olive oil (pomace)
14 drops spearmint essential oil
14 drops peppermint essential oil
4 drops French rosemary essential oil
Combine the beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter (USA / Canada), and olive oil (pomace) in a small heat resistant glass measuring cup and melt in a double boiler (this will take five to ten minutes).
Once melted, remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the essential oils using a flexible silicone spatula.
Pour the melted lip balm into lip balm tubes and let them set up before labelling (I use these labels) and using. This recipe will fill about 10 lip balm tubes.
