Sparkling Apple Juice Lip Balm


Sparkling Juice

Sparkling Juice

‘Tis the season of sparkling juices with fancy labels packaged in green wine bottles. I remember seeing these as a little girl while shopping with my mother. I loved the look of all of the beautiful bottles, expertly stacked to dizzying heights. I even remember the rare occasion when my parents would buy a bottle.  I remember thinking my little green Tupperware® cup had never held something that tasted so good. (To this day, sparkling juices taste better in Tupperware®.)

Adding Flavor Oils

Adding Flavor Oils

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 Champagne Flavor Oil. Stir well.

Pouring Lip Solutions into filling tray

Pouring Lip Solutions into filling tray

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.

Scraping Excess Off

Scraping Excess Off

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.

Finished Lip Balm. YUM!

Finished Lip Balm. YUMMY!

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!
