Sweet Coconut Lip Balm


After staring at a jar of the Virgin Coconut Oil that has been sitting on my desk for the past 2 weeks, I finally found a fantastic use for this yummy smelling oil. Lip Balm! This recipe that I formulated stays on the lips and gives a nice smooth glossy feel without being too greasy. The light and sweet coconut flavor of this lip balm will entice anyone who wants a lightly flavored lip balm.

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.

Notes: If you want a stronger coconut flavored lip balm, add Coconut Flavor instead of the Sugar Kisses Flavor.

How would you personalize this lip balm for you?

Since we have had several questions about our Vanilla Oleoresin, tomorrow we will make cold process soap to test the soapability (Is that a word?) of the Vanilla Oleoresin. Check back in tomorrow for more details!

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
