Weigh all ingredients except the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil into your microwave safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the mixture is melted, add the Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil . Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.

  1. Just got a sample tube of this in my order and MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. I was surprised that there was no other orange flavoring added. It has a great scent and flavor! I’m going to have to order some and try adding in flavors to complement! I’m curious about the blueberry butter too now! Thanks for the sample!!!!

    1. Unfortunately, the blueberry butter does not have a scent or flavor. It smells just like any other butter that has a light “oily” odor.

  2. hmmm. Seems like the catalog may be misleading then. Under Blueberry Butter it says “When making some of the fun soaps and lotions it would be nice to use colored, fruity scented butters.”

    I do love the orange!

  3. Okay… I made this recipe and now want to list ingredients on label. Since the Orange butter is a compound… can you help me get the ingredients in descending order properly? Not sure if flavor oil is the “least” ingredient or hydrog. vegetable oil? Perhaps I’m not the only one who needs this!
    Castor Oil, Beeswax, hydrogenated soybean oil, sweet almond oil, orange peel oil, orange peel wax, hydrogenated vegetable oil (is this soybean oil again?), flavor oil.

  4. Is the orange butter safe on the lips in the sun? It seems to be wonderful, but since many say Orange EO is photo-toxic, is that the case with Orange butter too? How true is this about Orange based EO or other products? DO people really worry about this?

    1. Let’s review a lip balm.

      I make a lip balm and since the essential oils are very potent in flavor I
      might use 1% lemon oil or orange oil. I fill my lip balm tube and I put
      7 grams inside the tube. This means that 0.07 grams is orange oil.
      I can not weigh this amount on my scale, it is too small. I put my lip
      balm on my lips and I get a nice flavor of orange because I licked my lips.
      How much did I put on my lips? I can’t even weigh the amount of lip balm
      I put on!
      Does each tube have 50 uses? 100 uses? So, if the tube has 100 uses
      that means
      the 0.07 grams of lemon oil is divided by 100 is 0.0007 grams each time
      I coat my lips. But how much avocado oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter and
      other
      fixed oils did I put there? For a 100 use tube it is .0693 grams of fixed
      oil to every 0.0007 grams of essential oil.

      I don’t want anyone using these essential oils neat on the skin. Neat is
      an undiluted form. Phototoxic essential oils are great solvents. What do
      they really do? They remove the natural oils from the skin and cause
      evaporation and skin damage which is exacerbated by the sun and wind.
      Using neat can injure the skin.

      When used appropriately essential oils offer little harm in a personal
      care product. I think the concern is primarily a perfume where usage rates
      may be 5, 10, 15 or 20% essential oil. Imagine a spray of perfume oil on
      the skin that has a very high percentage of orange, this problem causes
      the phototoxic reaction as stated above. Now everyone freaks out if the oil
      us used on the skin at all. The key to everything is finding the
      appropriate amount of dilution.
