How do you fill an empty lip balm tube?
Just insert your lip balm tubes into the filling tray and pour your liquid balm ingredients across the top. (It’s a lot like filling an ice cube tray.) When your tubes are full, let the solution harden and then return to scrape off the extra and release the individual lip balm tubes.

How do you make clear lip balm with Vaseline?

Can you make lip balm with just coconut oil?
Obviously you can just smear some coconut oil on your lips all on its own to soothe chapped lips, but if you take five minutes and a few supplies that you probably already have, then you can bring it to a whole other level. You’ll need: Coconut oil, preferably organic, virgin, and unrefined.
Can you sanitize lip balm?
Take a tube of lipstick and dip it in alcohol for 15 to 30 seconds, then wipe away the top layer of the lipstick. Or leaving it overnight in the freezer will also kill bacteria and viruses. Leave a closed tube of mascara overnight in the freezer, thereby killing the germs.
How do you fix a lip balm tube?
