Blueberry Lemonade Lip Balm


I love the label our Graphics Department designed!

I love the label our Graphics Department designed!

There is just something refreshing about a cool glass of lemonade and with the days heating up, a cool beverage is required! I love how you can dress up a simple glass of lemonade with in-season fruit. It is just so easy and it tastes really good too! Today I wanted to make a lip balm inspired by a cool glass of blueberry lemonade. While the lip balm won’t stay cold in my pocket, I can still enjoy its refreshing taste! Come join me for this easy lip balm!

I really love this lip balm because it is sweet and fresh without having an overwhelming amount of flavor. It is just right. I also love how firm the lip balm is without sacrificing any creaminess in the lip balm. This is a lip balm intended for the summer heat. In fact, I think I am going to save this recipe to pass out for the 4th of July. I know my friends and family will love it!

Note: If you want a stronger lemon flavor, I would recommend using our Lemon Essential Oil, Argentina. It has more of a tart note to it where the Lemon Essential Oil, USA is much softer and sweeter in comparison.

Weighing Beeswax

Weighing Beeswax

Weigh all of the oils except for the Blueberry Flavor Oil, Lemon USA Essential 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 Blueberry Flavor Oil, Lemon USA Essential 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.

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!
