    Hi Jenni,

    How much water does this recipe require?

      Elizabeth-This recipe requires no water. Only water I used is to make the double boiler. I add water to a medium sized pot, then place a glass bowl in it. This helps the oils to not overheat. I actually steep the tea bags in the grapeseed oil. Thanks!

    Hi Jenni! I followed the link to this post from Pinterest. This is a great post and thanks for sharing. My question is, since the beezwax comes in pellets, do I use just a standard measuring spoon or can you tell me about how many pellets is a tablespoon? Thanks!

    • October 12, 2014 / 3:47 pm

      Chaunte-Yes, use a measuring spoon-You don’t need to get the beeswax exact. A few pellets won’t make a difference!

    Looks wonderful! I was wondering if the grapeseed oil could be replaced with something else? I was also curious why you chose grapeseed oil. Thanks!

      Rachelle-I chose grapeseed oil because it is odorless. You could also use meadowfoam or a refined coconut oil. Other then those, I’m not sure of any other oils that are odorless! Thanks!!

    Hi Jenni,
    I have tried a few lip balm recipes, but I love this one. I did a berry lip balm using of course berry tea. I also used evaporated sugar cane, but had a hard time getting it to dissolve. Any suggestions, or do I just stick with “regular” white sugar?
    Absolutely LOVE your site and recipes by the way!!

      Misty-I haven’t worked with evaporated sugar cane. I’ve just used white sugar and didn’t have a problem. Thank you so much!!!

        Thank you so much for the information. I’ll use the white sugar next time.
        Have a blessed day!

        Could one use a a sugar substitute? We make lip balms that we sell….granted it would be a minute amount, but I try not to add sugar to thing people might ingest incase one were to have a diabetic issue. Thanks!!

          (I also wanted to let you know that we aren’t steeling your recipe, we have a base recipe that we use, I am just trying to get ideas for flavorings.)

          Hanna-I’m sure you could. It would probably be a bit stronger so that might be good.

    Have you tried any other teas with this recipe? I love Constant Comment and would like to attempt it!

      Wendy-I haven’t but I can’t imagine they wouldn’t work the same! I say go for it!

    When I tried to look up the tea that you used, Amazon didn’t take me to it! Can you tell me the brand you used? Thank you!
