If you are looking for a homemade flavored lip balm recipe with just a touch of sweetness, you will really like this one because it uses just a few ingredients and is simple and easy for anyone to make.
Winter or summer, if you are like me and fight dry lips no matter the season, then you will like this recipe. Just be sure and make extra tubes or small containers to keep on hand.
I like making all sorts of body butter and balms because they are so easy to make and save me a bunch of money. Lip balms are one recipe that I really like making. It is easy to adapt recipes – change out some oils for others I like and still have it coming out great!
Not only do I make lip balms for myself, but as gifts for family and friends. They make great little gifts for any time of the year.
I also feel good that I know what is going into my lip balms – that they contain safe ingredients! I chose ingredients that even my youngest grand daughter could use without worry of her licking her lips and ingesting questionable chemicals.
For this recipe I chose to use all edible ingredients. The cocoa butter is one that is food grade: as well as, the coconut oil, the extra virgin olive oil, and the beeswax. The *organic flavoring for lip balm I chose has no questionable chemicals (you can also find natural flavoring for food that are ok to use in lip gloss/balm recipes). I also added a touch of *stevia which came in an easy to blend form (mixed with coconut oil) and was also edible. (*These were found on ETSY.com).
Making your own homemade flavored lip balm is super easy. It only takes 4 base ingredients and 15 minutes.
Note: Some people are allergic to Stevia – this is an optional ingredient. You can also swap out different butters for the cocoa butter – such as shea, or mango. You can also swap out the other oils for whatever you food grade kind you like – such as grapeseed, or avocado.
