Intense Therapy Lip Butter



This formula is for all skin types, especially for dry and chapped lips. It glides on super smoothly and protects your precious pout from moisture loss and the frigid assault of cold winter air! Turn dry lips into soft, moisturized, velvety smooth lips in one application. This make enough to fill up eight of the 0.15 oz twist-up lip balm containers. **I also made this without using the unpopular metric measurements. I promised some of you that I would try really hard at writing up my recipes without having you worry about what 5 ml's or 6 grams of something is.  While I can't promise that every future recipe will be done this way,  this particular recipe is just good old American teaspoons and tablespoons :)

Intense Therapy Lip Butter

1 tablespoon, plus one teaspoon beeswax
1 tablespoon Shea Butter
1/2 tablespoon Mango Butter
1 tablespoon pure Emu Oil
1/4 teaspoon Abyssinian Oil
1/4 teaspoon Kiwi Seed Oil
1/4 teaspoon Blackberry Seed Oil
1/4 teaspoon Cranberry Seed Oil
1/4 teaspoon Red Raspberry Seed Oil
1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E. Oil
1/4 teaspoon Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil
8 drops Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil
3 drops Helichrysum Essential Oil
3 drops Blue Chamomile Essential Oil


You can find empty lip balm tubes over at Mountain Rose Herbs. Click HERE!!!

I like to buy my precious and expensive oils like Abyssinian Oil, Kiwi Seed Oil, Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Blackberry Seed Oil, Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil and Cranberry Seed Oil at Lotioncrafter.com


I buy my Mango and Shea Butter at Mountain Rose Herbs. Click HERE.

I will only buy Emu Oil that is made in the USA!!!!


I like to get my essential oils from Mountain Rose Herbs, Snow Lotus, Eden Botanicals, and Simplers. If you can find them Certified Organic-even better.  All three of the essential oils above are organic!!!

Measure out your beeswax.......

Measure out your Shea Butter and Mango Butter.......

Place the beeswax and butters into a pyrex measuring cup that is sitting in a simmering water bath....

Allow to heat until melted.

The beautiful red liquid in the center is the Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil.

Measure out the Emu Oil, Abyssinian Oil, Kiwi Seed Oil, Blackberry Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, Red Raspberry Seed Oil, Vitamin E Oil and Sea Buckthorn Berry Oil into a small container.

Turn the heat down to low. Stir in the small container of oils and mix well to melt together.

Remove the pot from the heat. Leave the measuring cup inside the hot water to keep the lip balm melted.

Mix in the essential Oils.

Line up your lip balm tubes with the caps off next to the melted lip balm.

You have to work quickly (and carefully) to fill the lip balm containers up to the very top. I use a plastic pipette to do this. There are lip balm molds you can buy, but I handcraft in super small batches so I don't use them.

Some of yours (like mine) may develop small holes in the center. This is perfectly normal and is fine.

Make your labels and apply to the lip balm tubes after they have cooled down all the way.

Enjoy!!!
