· 1/2 cup of beeswax pellets

1. Fill the pan with 2-3 inches of water and bring to a boil.

2. Set the tin can in the boiling water and add all the ingredients listed above except the essential oil.

3. While ingredients are melting, prepare the lip balm tubes to be filled.

4. Once all ingredients are melted, quickly add the essential oil and carefully pour the liquid into the tubes. The liquid is hot, so be careful not to burn yourself, but be sure to pour the liquid into the containers quickly or it won’t set properly.
