Complete set of Halloween Lip Balms.

As I told you on Friday, Halloween is my favorite holiday. I’ve decided that now I have some adorable Halloween labels, I have to put together some lip balm samples for the Shipping Department. If you are lucky enough, you will get one of these lip balms in your order when it ships this week.

I had fun making this recipe several times as I made a batch for each flavor featured on the labels last week. Let’s go make some yummy lip balm with the new flavors!

q.s. Oil Soluble Lip Colors

Q.S. means quantity sufficient. The amount of color varies from person to person until you find the amount you like. Some of the colors in this need so little that it can be difficult to weigh the amount needed! So we use Q.S. to say use as much as you need to achieve the right color, flavor, etc. I colored each batch for fun, but there is not enough color to give any tint to the lips.

Weigh all ingredients except the Flavors and Oil Soluble Lip Colors 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 mixtures after the other ingredients have been heated, it will melt quickly. Once the mixture is melted, add the Flavor Oils and Oil Soluble Lip Colors. Stir until all of the flavor and color has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.

Notes:
For each flavor I used, I used 3% flavor and 1% Sugar Baby to help the flavor have more taste. I’ve included my notes from each batch about the colors used for each flavor.

Cantaloupe Flavored Lip Balm: This lip balm was colored using a small drop of Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Color.

Caramel Apple Flavored Lip Balm: This lip balm was colored using a drop of Ruby Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color and a dab of Black Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color. The flavor was achieved by mixing 60% Green Apple and 40% Caramel Toffee. In grams, this is 5.1 grams Green Apple and 3.4 grams Caramel Toffee. In ounces, this is 0.18 ounces Green Apple and 0.12 ounces Caramel Toffee.

Green Apple Flavored Lip Balm: This lip balm was colored using a drop of Blue Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color.

Caramel Toffee Flavored Lip Balm: This lip balm was colored using a drop of Coral Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color, a dab Yellow Oil Soluble Lip Color and a touch of Black Oil Soluble Lip Balm Color.

I hope you have fun making this batch of lip balm! If you try one of our new flavors, we would love to hear what you think!

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!
