(vii) Lip balm containers: As per need.
(i) Put the beeswax pellets, coconut oil, shea butter & honey in a microwave safe bowl. If you want to tint the balm, add a small piece of lipstick (optional). Microwave the bowl for about 10 seconds, till all the ingredients are melted.
(ii) Add the raspberry flavor into the melted hot mixture, and stir the mixture well to combine the ingredients thoroughly.
(iii) Pour the melted mixture immediately into lip balm containers and then allow them to sit and completely cool before using it.
Note: Try to use a microwave safe container with a spout so as to transfer the mixture into lip balm containers easily, while the mixture is still hot. If using microwave safe container without spout, you can transfer the melted lip balm into the containers, using a spoon.
Pouring it from a bowl without spout can be difficult & you can easily lose some lip balm over the edge and it can messy too.

(b) Since the flavorings can be strong, so first time add 1 or 2 drops. Then if you feel the flavor is not strong enough, increase the amount a bit more next time.
