    • Take the test tube away from the heat. Let it cool for 20-30 seconds and then add 4-5 drops of lemon essential oil to it.

    • Pour all the contents into an empty lip balm tube.

    • Allow the tube to cool down at room temperature for a few minutes.

    • Make sure you use not more than 1g of beeswax for every 2-3g of oil, else too much of wax sticks on lips.

    • Make sure the beeswax is heated until it melts.

    • Do not pour the essential oil while still on the heat

    • Pour the melted contents immediately to the empty tube before it gets hardened.

    • Try making lip balm using different essential oils, to suit your fragrance preferences!

    • You may also use different base oils, e.g. coconut oil, shea butter, castor oil, honey etc. Make sure that the oil is good on the skin and non-toxic

    • Try adding a colouring agent while melting and observe the difference. Can this be your DIY lipstick?
