Flavored Lip Balms
- 1 tablespoon beeswax beads
- 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil
- 1 tablespoon shea butter
- 2-4 drops (subjective) OOOFlavors “your choice” Flavoring
- 6-8 Plastic tubes and/or clear plastic pots
Measure beeswax beads, sweet almond oil and shea butter into a small glass mixing jar (a clean condiment jar works well) or a 1-cup pyrex measuring cup. Fill a small saucepan with 1 inch of water and heat to simmer. Place glass jar or measuring cup in pan and allow plant butters and beeswax to melt. Do not overheat. Remove from pan.
Add flavoring and mix well. Pour into containers and allow to harden undisturbed for 20 minutes.
OOOFlavors Flavoring Suggestions: Pina Colada, Peppermint, Banana Sweet Cream, Black Cherry, Blood Orange, Caramel Cream, Cheesecake, Coconut, Grape Punch, Vanilla Maple, Tangerine (Natural), Fruit Punch.
Try a combination of flavors such as 2-4 drops of OOOFlavors Tangerine (Natural) and 2-4 drops of OOOFlavors Peppermint Flavoring. Peppermint adds a brisk, tingling sensation to your lip balm.
Coloring Option: Inexpensive lipstick works best. To color your lip balm, slice off a small amount of the lipstick and stir into melted lip balm mixture, then add your flavoring and pour into containers.
