Here’s a great example of less ingredients = awesome product. One solid oil, one liquid oil, and one butter – boom! A luxe lip balm is born. And, bonus: it even adds just the right amount of gloss while conditioning and soothing chapped lips.

This kit is a little different than our other kits in that you can remove or get extra of each item in your shopping cart (and the price will adjust accordingly) before you check out. So you can just get what you need. Also please note that there are no printed instructions included with this kit, learn how to make this lip balm on the Soap Queen Blog here.
This was my first lip balm. It was easy to do. I had some beeswax on hand but it was old and did not melt well. But I did get about 10% integrated. I popped it in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then capped. It set up great and tested great. I am anxious to try it tomorrow to see if the texture is as nice as it is right now. It smells nice. I think in my next batch I might add a bit more flavor fragrance though. Heat just seems to give scents a beating! But it is nice as is. I think the kit should have 25 pots though or instructions to have some other containers ready. But that is a minor thing and never bad to have a tad left over. I will incorporate the leftover into something. Maybe just use it on my feet after evening shower and put on socks. Bet my feet would feel fabulous!
I like this kit, but I found that even through I melted and finely strained the cocoa and coffee butters, once the lip balm hardened there were small lumps in it. I tried remelting and straining, but it didn't help. Is there any way to avoid this?

Hi Jill! If the butters get overheated, this can result in graininess in your balms. Next time you make this recipe, I’d suggested tempering the butters like you would when you melt chocolate. That will help to prevent any graininess in your final product! Another trick is placing your balms in the freezer after they have been poured. This quick cool method can help avoid any separation which can feel lumpy.
