More Lip Balm and Lotion

Last week I harvested and filtered a some bees wax, and this weekend we made homemade lip balm and lotion bars.

If you're interested in the recipes for these, you can find them on the left side navigation under "Articles and How-To's" labeled as Bees Wax Lip Balm and Bees Wax Lip Balm

Today, I'm just posting pictures for your viewing pleasure of this weekend's project.

Here are all the ingredients for lip balm melting in a double boiler.

Here I'm using a sterile eye dropper to carefully transfer hot molten lip balm into the lip balm containers.

Pictured above are containers full of lip balm, cooling. We made 6 containers of Mango and 6 containers of Peach, and 1 container of Peach/Mango.

Below is another double boiler melting ingredients to make lotion bars.

Here is a picture of one of the lotion bars after it's cooled and removed from the silicone mold. It's so soft and melts easily with just the warm touch of your hand.

This looks wonderful!   The most I've ever made is bayberry/beeswax candles.  Though I have used a bit in soap, now that I think about it.   I need to branch out.  That lotion bar is looking pretty tempting.
