ONE: Portion out 1 oz. of the Nourish Lip Balm Base. Melt in 20 second bursts in a heat-safe container.

TWO: Once melted, add .4 oz. Castor Oil and stir.

THREE: Add 2 scoops Sparkle Gold Mica, 2 scoops Merlot Mica and 2 scoops Copper Sparkle Mica. Stir.

FIVE: Insert the lip balm tubes into the pouring tray, and the fill to the brim. Be sure to scrape off any excess and save for another remelt. You can watch this Soap Queen TV episode to learn how to do that.

Allow the lip balms to dry for 1 – 2 hours. They’re ready to use once hard!

Below is an example of what the color looks like on skin. It is a great sheer, neutral hue that works for a wide variety of skin tones!

      Hi Engy!

      I’m sorry your lip balms are giving you a bit of trouble. You may want to twist it up just enough for what you need to use.

      Also, you may like our Clear Lip Balm Tubes so you can see how much you have left. :)

        hey Kelsey thanks for the reply..

        I use these clear lipbalms and i love them. I Twist it up just enough for what I need to use. but i think the reason is it sticks to the sides of the tube.. is there something i can polish on the sides of the tube ?

          Hi Engy!

          You don’t need to add anything to your tube. If you want your lip balm to be a little softer, you can add more liquid oils to your recipe. :)
