Lip balm will hydrate the area under your eyes, which reduces the appearance of lines. Make sure you use a soft brush instead of applying lip balm directly from the tube since this skin is extra-sensitive.
Can you remelt lip balm?
One of the great things about making lip balm is that it’s almost impossible to mess up! You can always remelt it and add more ingredients until you are satisfied with the final product.
How do you harden melted lip balm?
Place the open container in the fridge or freezer for approximately 10 minutes, or until the balm is hardened.
Can you microwave lip balm?
Heat for about two minutes, or until completely melted, then stir. Microwaves vary, so use your best judgment when heating your ingredients. It may take more or less time to melt the lip balm, but you want it to be fully liquid so it’s easy to pour.
How do you clean and reuse lip balm tubes?
Lip Balm Tubes: To clean your lip balm tubes, simply wind the tube until the bottom comes all the way up and wipe residual balm off with a q-tip or paper towel. Toss into a pot of boiling water for 5 minutes until excess balm melts out (our tubes are BPA + BPS FREE so no need to worry about leaching chemicals!).

How do you make lip balm in bulk?
How Do You Make Natural Lip Balm?
- 1 part cocoa butter (or shea butter) +
- 2 parts beeswax +
- 3 parts oil. This is what I call my “1-2-3” formula and it can be used to make any size batch! You simply melt these three ingredients together and then pour it into empty lip balm containers.
How do lip balm tubes work?
They have a little cardboard disk in the bottom that you push up as you use the lip balm to make it go up, instead of twisting like on plastic tubes. The tubes come in a variety of sizes as well, so you could use them to make all kinds of things, like DIY moisturizers, balms, deodorants, etc.
How do you keep lip balm clean?
This is how I’m keeping my balms as clean as possible.
- I scrape out the balm using a small spatula.
- Then I wipe the balm off from the spatula with a finger, and apply the balm to my lips or wherever it needs to go.
- And finally, I wipe the spatula with tissue to keep it clean.
How do you get the last bit of lip balm out of the tube?
To remove that platform blocking the interior, you need to pry off the bottom of the tube. You may be able to do this by hand, or you might need a narrow piece of metal to prise off the twisting piece. Once you have this piece off, use a cotton swab to push the platform piece outside.
