This lip balm recipe is a great starting point for almost any lip balm you feel like making. Add less beeswax and more oil for a smoother, glossy balm. If it is children you are making the balm for, try playing around with edible glitter for a sparkly balm or beetroot powder for a tinted version. The beauty is that you have the flexibility to create whatever you want, and you get full control of what exactly, you let them put on their precious lips. And we all know whatever lands on their lips, ends up in their mouths!

Add shea butter, beeswax pellets and carrier oil to Thermomix bowl and melt 4-5 min/70ºC/speed 1 until completely melted.
Add essential oils and mix 5-10 sec/speed 3 until well combined.
Act very QUICKLY to pour balm into small containers and allow to set.
Use clean fingers to scoop a small amount of balm and apply to lips as needed.
- Be mindful of the beeswax pellets and keep them off the blades or they won’t melt.
- To clean your thermal appliance bowl, use paper towel/old rag to wipe out as much left over balm out as possible, then run some boiling water over bowl and blades to melt remaining balm, quickly wiping off with paper towel. I don’t recommend using a sponge.
- Don’t pour leftover balms down your kitchen sink, or you run the risk of clogging your pipes. I pour mine in a quiet corner in my garden, over some stones.
