.5 oz. refined shea butter
.1 oz. walnut oil
.1 oz. light agave syrup
.2 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
8 drops cocoa absolute
10 drops ginger essential oil

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.
