To make this lip butter recipe you will begin by using a digital scale weigh out the cocoa butter, shea butter and beeswax. Heat in a double boiler or at reduced power in the microwave until melted.

Now weigh out the walnut oil and agave syrup and stir into the melted wax and butters. Mix well.

Using a glass dropper or plastic transfer pipette add the cocoa absolute and ginger essential oil.

Use a teaspoon measuring spoon to measure out the alkanet root powder. Whip into the lip butter until it is thoroughly combined then spoon into four 1/3 oz. (10 gram) lip balm pots.

      The shelf life will always be the same as your ingredient with the shortest shelf life. This will vary based on where you source ingredients and how long you’ve had them.
