DIY Recipes For EOS Lip Balm Containers. February 28 2016, 0 Comments

These super cute egg shaped lip balms became very popular in these past few years. Besides being adorable and a decent product they are super inexpensive!

That makes it so easy for us to just go out and buy a new one as soon as the balm goes low, dumping millions of these 3-part plastic containers on our landfills.

Making you own refill will not be easier, more practical or even cheaper than driving into Walgreens and buying a new one, but it will be a lot of fun and you will end up with a much better product.

Since these have to be harder than lip balms in containers, I had to adjust the recipes I had a little, but I have tried them and they are delicious and work out perfectly.

For one container you need about 0.5 oz. of final product. You can always make a larger amount and save in a glass jar for the next time you need to refill. Make sure you use the entire mix within 12 months. Otherwise you will need a natural preservative.

For these containers I use the general rule of: 2 parts of a harder butter, 1 part of wax, 1 part of softer butter, about 30 drops of liquid oils. Most of the recipes follow this rule.

So this is the breakdown of the numbers for  0.4 oz - 1 container.

  • 2 parts = 0.2 oz. hard butter.

  • 1 parts = 0.1 oz. beeswax.

  • 1 parts = 0.1 oz. soft butter

  • 30 drops of a liquid oil.

BASIC

  • Cocoa Butter - 2 parts

  • Beeswax - 1 part

  • Shea Butter - 1/2  part

  • Coconut Oil - 1/2 part

ACAI BERRY OIL

CHOCOLATE LIPS

SUMMER LIPS

HEALING LIPS

You can add FLAVOR OILS or ESSENTIAL OILS to any of these, just a few drops.

You can add MICA PIGMENT for a little glow to any of these.

You can add to these recipes the leftover from the balm that was in the tube previously.
