Creamy Mango Lip Balm


Mango is a favorite flavor, and when you add a creamy component to the profile, it’s even more delicious!

Today I’m making up a lip balm using Mango Butter and flavored with Mango and Buttercream Flavor Oils for a decadent treat.

Rounding out the formula, we have deodorized Cocoa Butter, High Melt Point Shea Butter, Beeswax (of course), Avocado and Castor oils, and Aloe Extract for an extra boost for winter-dry lips.

(Is it spring yet where you live? In my part of Alaska, we are still firmly entrenched in winter with piles of snow everywhere.)

Join me in the work room as I craft this terrific treat for your lips.

Use a toothpick to dip into the Yellow Lip Balm Color, then stir the toothpick into the lip balm solution, adding more color as needed until the desired color is reached.

I love the flavor of this lip balm! The color is like a yolk from a barnyard chicken, and it’s marvelously sunny and happy!

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill. I live in Alaska and greatly enjoy the unique aspects of my northern home - summer days when it never gets dark and the Northern Lights dancing above in winter. Favorite scents include Wild Mint and Ivy, Rhubarb & Sugar Cane, and Eucalyptus Spearmint.
