Making lip balm

Ooh this was fun! I bought a little soap company kit for making lip balm yesterday, and this evening I used it. It just involves heating the beeswax and shea  butter (which took a surprisingly long time) adding avocado oil and then the lavender and citrus essential oil. 

It’s  a bit frustrating that the mixture cooled quite quickly so two of the pots have lumpy bits on  top. If I’d thought about it I’d  have warmed those bits up again to make them liquid before adding them, but it’s cool… It won’t notice once people have started using them! 

Apparently the hardest part of the process was spelling lavender when I wrote it on the pot lids!! Oops!
