  • Step 6: Now turn the stove on. On low-medium heat, the water will heat up and melt your ingredients. Once this happens, remove the bowl and stir till your formulation is one colour. Then after the formula's cooled off, pour it into a clean lip balm container. You can either wait for your DIY lip balm to harden, or put it in the refrigerator to speed the process.
