Did you make your infused oils yet (not to be confused with essential oils)??? If ya did straight after the post I created for how to make them then obviously you'll need to wait several weeks before they are ready to be use. OR, if you're antsy enough, you can go ahead and just use regular oil that hasn't been infused. It's up to you.

I chose to use my rosehips infused oils because of how wonderfully soft the rosehips oils tends to make your skin. It only made sense to use it in a lip balm for maximum power in achieving luscious lips (yes I just said that)! So once you have an infusion or a simple-plain oil (like extra virgin olive oil or Avocado oil) you want to use selected then all you need to get are a few more things: bees wax pellets, essential oils of your choice (peppermint is excellent for chapped lips or you can just use a lemon essential oil mixed with a lavender essential oil for a wonderful fragrance).

So when making balms, the general rule of thumb is to use a one to two ratio of oil to bees wax pellets. Fox example, if you are using one cup of infused oil then you will want to use 2 OZ. of Bees Wax Pellets. I actually like my lip balm slightly glossier, so I went with a one to one ratio instead. You'll have to play around with it to figure out which way you like better.

THE RECIPE: Rose Hips Infused Lip Balm Recipe




If you are using an instant pot, Insert your liner and turn it on to “keep warm.”
If you are using a double boiler add water to the bottom pot and bring to a boil adding
second pot to the top. Measure your Bees wax pellets using your food scale and then add
them to your instant pot or top pot of double broiler to melt. Add your infused oil to the instant
pot. You will see that it hardens when you add it and this is because your cold oil is hardening
the bees wax. Stir it with a spoon until it mixes well and melts all the way through again.
Pour mixture into your glass measuring cup and mix essential oil into lip balm. Quickly pour
into containers before mixture hardens. If you find it hardens before you can get everything
into their containers you can scoop it back out into the instant pot or double broiler to be
melted again.

There's plenty more where that came from so come on back now, ya hear?!
