To make your Homemade Lip Balm you will need a double boiler to melt down your beeswax and coconut oil. I highly recommend one of these broilers. Fill up the bottom portion of your double boiler with water and set on high fire and bring to a boil. While you’re waiting for your water to begin boiling you need to take your beeswax sticks and grate them up finely. This will help them melt much faster and smoother.
