I have checked and double checked assorted recipes and have not found this to be a common problem. Could you tell me a little bit more about the amounts that you used in your recipe? The frozen spoon trick is a super easy way to test if you like the consistency of the lip balm you are making before it hardens up. Hi i made my first batch of lip balm tonight, the first batch i used strawberry flavoring like you wqould get at a grocery store, but it didnt solidify i guess and seperated andf the balm was mushy: Is that why my balm turned out mushy?
Flavorings that you can get at the grocery store are going to act a little differently then a lip flavorings that have been made specifically for lip balms. You can find them here:. I made a 2 oz batch about a week ago and I noticed some condensation of the oil on top of the balm. Sometimes that can happen if the ambient temperature is a little warm or the air is humid. Thanks so much for your help!
When you were adding your lip-safe essential oils, when did you add them in? We like to add them in as soon as the base for the lip balms has been fully melted. Can we use floral water together with other ingredient? You can substitute Olive or Sunflower Oil for the Sweet Almond Oil, but it may change the consistency and feel of your lip balm. And, you will want to watch the shelf life on the oils you are using. For more on the shelf lives of our different butters and oils, you can check out this post from the Teach Soap Forums:.
I made the vanilla latte exactly with the ingredients and measurements. What is the solution for the graininessWe love the glide in this recipe and i want to make it again. Thanks for the question. It sounds like the Coffee Butter might have been overheated a bit.

Can see you mention shelf life above but how long is the shortest life oil used here?

I have a question. Is it possible to add one or two tiny drops of Lavender Essential Oil to throw a nice lavender scent to lip balm. Anytime you are adding an essential oil to a lip product, you will need to make sure you are using a lip-safe product. Hungarian Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender Bulgarian Essential Oil: Blueberry Bliss Flavoring Oil: Honey Kisses Flavoring Oil: If I omit the flavoring oil will i need to alter the recipe to get the right texture?
The flavoring is an optional piece of the recipe, but we find that many people prefer it. Hi Becky Thanks for all your feedback. Like I still have to scrape it to get enough on my finger to feel it on y lips, if I simply swirl my finger around its like a glossy bit that comes off but at such a small amount I feel like I have to do that ten times to get enough on to even feel its there … I poured not too hot and I followed the recipe exactly as I have with the others.
I only poured this bath into 3 tins to test it and the rest is waiting to be poured I hope. Such a pain all the scraping out etc. I also have tried the frozen spoon trick. Sometimes when ingredients are substituted in a recipe, the consistency can change a bit. Could that also be part of the problem? How hot are you pouring it in the tins? Another great way to figure out what the end consistency of your balm is going to be is to use the frozen spoon trick, have you tried that yet?
When I inc the measurements most of it is left in the dish which I mixed it with the oil in. Plz plz plz can you direct me to a good safe fool proof recipe?

Have you talked to your local print shop about maybe doing some custom labels and cutting? They might be able to help, or maybe just point you in the right direction!
Any suggestions for getting a whiter, milky color for the lip balm? It is just the nature of lip balms and butters to have that slight yellow tinge to it because of the ingredients used. You can try using lighter oils in conjunction with a small pinch of Titanium Dioxide to see if that does the trick. I actually had the oil rise to the top and when I turned the tubes upside down, alot of the lipsmackin sweetener and flavor oil drained out…I still think I might remelt and repour just to be safe..
The best course of action would be to remelt and repour it to see if it will setup better this time. Good luck and keep us updated! I am using the vegan lip balm base, and accidentally added too much flavor oil to my batch which is now in tubes…will the excess flavor rise to the top, or will it solidify and make the balm softer? Is there anything I can do to fix it? Typically we like to use.
Wondering if you could update your list of lip safe colorants? There are some that are described as lip safe that are not on the list apricot blush,surplus sienna, etc. Also, some are described as cosmetic or mineral make up Peach shimmer, etc , but it is not clear if they are lip safe.

I have only used soy wax and my lip balm is too soft.
Is there any benifits using beeswax over soy wax? All the recipes that I have seen always use beeswax. Beeswax definitely does help to harden up your lip balms if you are finding that they are too soft for your liking. We have found it to be one of the best hardening agents for both lip balm and lotion bars. Some people prefer soy wax over beeswax because they are trying to make an all-vegan product, but we have found that the beeswax works the best for us.
