Beloved Orange Lip Balm
What does one do when a recipe on our blog has been featured twice, creating the most commented recipe ever? Why, we make it again! Can you really go wrong with the classics?
We also gave out samples of this lip balm at the Handcrafted Soapmakers Conference 2010 in Denver, and Andee still had people taking to her about it. Wow! That speaks more for this recipe than anything I could ever say.
I really wanted to put this in our new Mini Lip Balm Tubes – they are so cute! Besides, can you really go wrong with cute and classy containers and a true classic lip balm? Not in my book! Let’s head to the kitchen for a truly scrumptious lip balm!
I used our Orange Butter in this recipe mostly for the flavor. This is a true orange with the best flavor ever! It also adds some soft, creamy texture. What a great start to a lip balm that is a show stopper!
The Hydrogenated Soy in this recipe is used to make a very creamy lip balm. I think Hydrogenated Soy is one of my favorite oils in lip balm. So good, and I love the texture. Add some Castor Oil for glide and gloss, and you have one of the simplest lip glosses with the greatest texture!
10 ounce batch
Fills about 115 Mini Lip Balm Tubes
22% Orange Butter
Weigh all ingredients except the Sugar Baby Flavor Oil into your microwave-safe container. Microwave in short bursts until all ingredients are melted. The beeswax will take the most time to melt, but if you stir the lip balm after the other oils have been heated, it will melt quickly.
Once the mixture is melted, add the Sugar Baby Flavor Oil . Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.
You can add different flavors to this lip balm to complement the Orange Butter. Try Chocolate Cream for chocolate covered oranges, Island Delight for Island Smoothie, Peach for Fuzzy Navel, or Vanilla Banilla for an orange creamsicle.
This recipe filled about 115 mini lip balm tubes.
