You ever add honey to your lip balms? I’ve tried twice and although it seems mixed in while sitting in the water bath it immediately separates out and settles to the bottom as soon as I start pouring it the mixture into the tubes.
Any idea how to keep it mixed within the rest of the meter ingredients?

You have heard the expression "oil and water don't mix"? Beeswax is oil based and honey is water based. Consider experimenting with an emulsifier like lecithin to keep things mixed.

"Normally I use a pipette", oops. So how orangey was it? Love the video and the commentary. Another winter project.
