Project Description

This simple lip balm combines kukui nut oil with another popular tropical ingredient – coconut oil! A bit of white beeswax gives the lip balm firmness.

Kukui nut oil (pronounced koo-koo-ee) feels ultra luxurious on the skin. The kukui nut (or candelnut) tree is the state tree of Hawaii, and residents there have used the oil for many years. It’s commonly used in massage and face oils because it’s lightweight and doesn't leave skin feeling greasy.

This simple lip balm combines kukui nut oil with another popular tropical ingredient – coconut oil! A bit of white beeswax gives the lip balm firmness. 

A touch of Coconut Flavor Oil gives the balm a light, tropical scent. If you’re unfamiliar with flavor oils, they are essentially lip-safe fragrance oils. Interestingly, they don’t flavor the balm. If you’d like to taste the balm, you can add a touch of sweetener like Stevia or the Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil.

If you’d like to taste the balm, you can add a touch of sweetener like Stevia or the Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil.

You will need:

  • 10 Slidey Lip Tins
  • 1 oz. Kukui Nut Oil
  • 1 oz. Coconut Oil
  • .5 oz. White Beeswax
  • 1 mL Coconut Flavor Oil
  • Dropper

Follow these steps:

1

In a small heat-safe container, add 1 ounce of kukui nut oil, 1 ounce of coconut oil, and 0.5 ounces of white beeswax. Place the container in the microwave and melt the balm using 30-60 second bursts. Remove from the microwave carefully, as the container will be very hot.

2

Add 1 mL Coconut Flavor Oil and mix in with a spoon until fully incorporated.

3

Carefully pour the mixture into the Slidey Lip Tins. Allow it to fully cool and harden before use. Enjoy!
