Ingredients Needed

  • Solid cocoa butter
  • Sweet almond oil
  • Natural beeswax
  • Mica color powder, orange color
  • Food flavoring, mango flavor

Choose high-quality ingredients to boost the effectiveness and safety of your DIY beauty products.

Tools Needed

  • Scale to weigh quantities
  • Small stainless steel bowl
  • Knife to cut the solid cocoa butter into small pieces
  • Wooden popsicle stick
  • Small silicone spatula
  • Two small containers to store the DIY Lip Balm. It is preferable to place the lip balm in a container that can hold 10 grams (0.35 oz). The quantity we are preparing will fit two such containers.

Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.

Steps: DIY Lip Balm Recipe

For the DIY Lip Balm Recipe with Mango Bliss to succeed, please ensure that you adhere to the quantities indicated below exactly.

1- Begin by cutting the solid cocoa butter into small pieces with a knife.

2- Put 10 grams (0.35 oz) of the cocoa butter pieces in a small stainless steel bowl.

6- Gently heat and melt the ingredients in a bain-marie (hot water bath). A bain-marie is made by placing the bowl in a larger pot of hot, steaming water. This will gradually heat and melt the contents. Make sure to stir while the mixture is melting, using a small silicone spatula. Avoid boiling.

Note: For this DIY product, we have added the mica color powder to the other ingredients before placing the bowl in a bain-marie. This way, heating and melting the contents ensures a good distribution of the color in the lip balm mixture.

7- When you are satisfied that the cocoa butter and beeswax have completely melted, remove the bowl out of the bain-marie, and continue stirring for a minute or so.

8- Add 5 to 7 drops of food flavoring, mango flavor. Be cautious not to add more, as it might become overwhelming. To ensure the right amount, rely on the scent of the mixture; a light mango fragrance indicates a good balance.
