DIY Eos Lip Balm Refill
Here how it's made:
First step is to remove the cap from the EOS ™ Lip Balm container
Carefully pop the base from the bottom. Never use anything sharp or dangerous to separate the two pieces. See all the good stuff that is left in the bottom! I just transferred it to a little pot for use later because I actually like EOS ™ Lip Balm and will use the leftover as a cuticle cream.
he EOS ™ Lip Balm containers have three parts. You have the top, the base and the bottom. You want to twist part #3 (as seen in the above picture) into part #1.
nce you have the two pieces put together, you are ready to make the lip balm recipe.
Customize Your Recipe:
You need 1 teaspoon of your favorite carrier oil such as olive, sweet almond, apricot seed, hemp seed, sunflower seed, or even grape seed oil. You can mix and match as many oils as you like, just make sure you have 1 teaspoon total.
You need a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of your choice(s) of cocoa butter, coconut oil, lanolin, Shea butter, Kokum butter and/or mango butter. You can mix and match as many oils as you like, just make sure you have 1/2 heaping teaspoon total.
You need a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of beeswax or carnauba wax.
You need 1/8 teaspoon of Vitamin E Oil
You can add up to 4 drops of your favorite essential oil such as orange, lemon, lime, peppermint, spearmint or even rosemary.
Measure out the carrier oils, beeswax, and butter and place them into a glass or metal container and sit the container into a simmering water bath. Stir to melt. Remove from heat and stir in the Vitamin E Oil and the Essential Oils. Mix well.
Carefully pour the lip balm into the container (the part on the left in the photo above). Allow the lip balm to harden for at least 1 to 2 hours. Pop the bottom piece back onto the other piece and you are ready to go!!
