The holiday season is upon us and the stores have laid out all of the winter treats. Peanut brittle, candy canes, chocolate covered jelly sticks, divinity, caramels and peppermint bark fill the shelves to near bursting. I can’t shop without some tempting treat calling my name.

This week, I will be sharing some fun lip balms that taste like these delectable treats without the calories.

Adding flavors to melted lip balm

Start with the lip solution base of your choice. I will be using our Soy Lip Solutions base, but there are many to choose from. Select your favorite. Heat the base gently in the microwave until melted. Once the base has completely melted, add the Caramel Toffee Flavor Oil, Chocolate Cream Flavor Oil and Peppermint Essential Oil. Stir well.

From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes or you can use a filling tray. I will be using a filling tray because they are simple and fast. If you are using a filling tray, insert your tubes into your tray. Flood the tray with your melted lip balm. Allow the mixture to cool. Scrape off the excess. I like to use a plastic putty knife. Remove the tubes from the tray and cap.

If you are going to pipette the lip balm into the tubes, fill the tube until you get a dome of liquid material at the top. Wax shrinks when it cools and doing this helps insure that you get a very pretty top. Fill all of your tubes making sure they are domed on the top before they cool. (You may need to reheat your jar of lip solutions during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool  and cap.

Now you can give your lip balm a pretty label or put it into a cute bag. Enjoy this great lip balm or give as gifts! Happy holidays!

    Hi Taylor. It looks like the column titled Recipe in Grams is missing the # of grams. Can you fix soon? Thanks!
