Honey Flavored a la Lip Crème 4


I hate it when my lips are rough and dry. This luscious lip crème creates wonderful soft lips. Goodbye dry, rough lips. Hello Honey Flavored a la Lip Crème!

I love this crème not only for the texture but also for the flavor. Yummy! Who doesn’t like a little bit of honey flavor in their life? The original Honey a la Lip Crème is wonderful, but my first batch failed as I had microwaved my honey with my oils. Whoops! I was not thinking. I was desperate for a honey flavored lip balm. I checked our catalog and rediscovered our Honey Flavor Oil. This recipe is the result of that small crisis!

These are the ingredients you will need for this recipe.

Ingredients
Sweet Almond Oil
Regular Cocoa Butter
Coconut Oil
Lanolin
Beeswax
Honey Flavor Oil
Coral Oil Soluble Lip Color
Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Color

Here is the equipment you will need for making this recipe.

Here is the recipe in percentages. This will allow you to adjust to recipe to fit your needs.

15% Regular Cocoa Butter
10% Coconut Oil
10% Lanolin
20% Beeswax

q.s. Coral Oil Soluble Lip Color
q.s. Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Color

Here is the recipe for making a 100 gram batch.

100 gram Recipe
45 grams Sweet Almond Oil
15 grams Regular Cocoa Butter
10 grams Coconut Oil
10 grams Lanolin
20 grams Beeswax
1.5 grams Honey Flavor Oil
q.s. Coral Oil Soluble Lip Color
q.s. Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Color

I place my lip balm jars or tubes into the refrigerator to cool. Do not place them in the freezer! We only want the lip balm to cool quickly not freeze instantly.

Weigh all ingredients except the Honey Flavor Oil and Oil Soluble Lip Balm Colors into a 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. Add the Honey Flavor Oil and Oil Soluble Lip Balm Colors once all of the oils have been melted. Pour the liquid mixture into the cool lip balm containers. Allow the solution to cool. Cap and label. Enjoy this flavorful recipe!

Whew! No honey to burn here!

    I LOVE IT! In my version I substituted the beeswax with candelilla wax – actually I kept the proportions and it still looked like it could be a bit firmer – maybe it’s my taste 🙂

    GREAT recipe!!

    oh, I remember reading here somewhere about the proportions.. how many grams of beeswax can we incorporate in 10 grams of lanolin? Is it like MAX 1.5 ? I would really love LOVE a version of lip balm with mush more honey in it – but still firmer 🙂

    Oh, and I forgot to mention that I have changed the sweet almond oil with calendula oil (infused in extravigin sunflower oil). I am a huge fan of calendula, and I love it on my lips during the wintertime.
