Tutti Fruitti Smoothie Lip Balm

Finished Tutti Fruitti Smoothie Lip Balm

I love fruit smoothies. They are so easy to do and with the help of my blender, fast too. So when I was chatting with a friend and her daughter in a book store and she mentioned blending orange and pineapple together, I immediately thought of my trusty blender. What do you know? It is a pretty yummy combination for both a smoothie and a lip balm! Come join me for a tasty lip treat.

This lip balm features some fantastic butters. One of the stars is Orange Butter. It give the lip balm great flavor, beautiful color and a yummy taste. This lip balm also contains Mango Butter. Mango Butter is very smooth and creamy, giving this recipe its signature glide and silky feeling.

I also used Macadamia Nut Oil. Macadamia Nut Oil has a mildly viscous texture that gives the lip balm a long lasting feel without being overly heavy or tacky. Castor Oil gives a long term creamy sensation and helps with smooth application. I personally think you can’t make lip balm without Castor Oil!

Weighing Orange Butter

Weigh all of the oils except for the Pineapple Flavor Oil and Sugar Baby Flavor Oil into a microwave safe container. Heat in 30 second increments until everything has melted. If the beeswax is being stubborn, remove the mixture from the microwave and stir well. This often will allow the beeswax to melt from the heat of the other oils. Once the oils have completely melted, add the Pineapple Flavor Oil and Sugar Baby 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 then 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 lip balm during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.
