We are approaching spring. How do I know? I am getting all kinds of gardening catalogs in my mail box. They are filled with glossy photos of juicy tomatoes, golden corn and plump berries. I can’t wait to be able to harvest directly from my garden. One thing I am super excited for is cantaloupe. Succulent, flavorful and juicy. Come join me for a fantastic lip balm to bring in warmer weather!

Starting with my lip solution base

Starting with my lip solution base

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 Cantaloupe Flavor Oil. Stir well.

From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes or you can use a filling tray. I like 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.

Adding Flavor Oil

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!
