Spiced Apple Cider Lip Balm 2


Hot Apple Cider

Hot Apple Cider

We have had a bout of bitter cold weather. I am miserable. My joints ache and I feel as if I can never get warm enough. When the weather gets like this, my drink of choice is Spiced Apple Cider. It is homey, it is sweet and most importantly, it is hot. Today we get to make a lip balm that tastes just like spiced apple cider. Yum! Join me. We can giggle in the kitchen and have a great time.

Collected Ingredients

Collected Ingredients

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 Green Apple Flavor Oil and Cinnamon Leaf Essential Oil. Stir well.

Adding Flavors

Adding Flavors

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.

Mixing Flavors into Lip Balm

Mixing Flavors into Lip Balm

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.

Pouring into filling tray

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!

    I think you posted the wrong flavor oils in the directions…….
    And I also have a question! Are your flavor oils already sweetened, or do I need to add that separately? Thanks!

      LuAnn,

      Whoops! That was my mistake. Thanks for catching that. You have a good eye! It has been corrected now.

      Some of our flavors are already sweetened. I do not feel that this lip balm needs a sweetener. However, if you want to add additional sweetener, you certainly can.

      Best,
      Taylor
