Micronize the pigments using a clean and sterlilized coffee grinder.
This ensures that the particles are tiny enough to mix with the rest of the oils well and
there won’t be tiny (but noticeable) bits of unmixed colorant.
POURING TRAY PREP:
Stick all of the chapstick tubes to the pouring tray.
Combine the Candelilla Wax, Beeswax, E-Wax, and Castor Oil. Heat in a heat-safe
container in the microwave on 30 second bursts until the waxes are melted.
Castor Oil helps to regulate the heat and allow the high melt-point
waxes to melt easier. However, temperatures will still get a bit high
so make sure you’re exercising caution when removing your heat-safe container from the microwave if it’s glass.
TWO: Add the Shea Butter, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Isopropyl Mysitrate and
Vitamin E Oil. Stir until the Shea Butter has fully melted (or help it along in the microwave for 10-15 seconds).
Add the Honey Kisses Flavor oil and mix well. Next, add the Titanium
Dioxide and Burgundy. Mix in well using the mini mixer.
Push the powder into the oil with the tip of the mini mixer before
turning it on, or you’ll get a poof of powdered pigment over your work
Pour the mixture into the
chapstick tubes via the pouring tray. Allow to harden overnight. Remove
tubes from pouring tray and cap the tubes.
