Coconut Lip Balm

Apparently, my craving for coconut isn’t over yet. Maybe it is all the coconut milk ice bars I have been eating here in Beijing just to stay cool with the hot summer weather. Again, I dreamed of a formula using this yummy oil.

I formulated this lip balm with some of our new Babassu Oil. I’ve been drooling over the oil and think that it is fabulous. One of my favorite lip balms that I received in a swap contained Babassu Oil, so I had to share this with you.

Castor Oil is my go-to ingredient when I want a long lasting lip balm, salve or cream. This oil has a characteristically sticky or tacky feel that doesn’t absorb into the skin easily. Great for that product you want to stay on the skin for a while.

I wanted to use the Black Currant Oil because it has a high percentage of GLA, Gamma-linolenic acid. This fatty acid is prized in the cosmetics industry because it is believed to help skin regenerate. Doesn’t that sound like what every body’s lips need?

Weigh all ingredients except the Sugar Kisses 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 Kisses Flavor Oil . Stir until all of the flavor has been incorporated. Fill tubes or jars. Cool. Label.

Notes: If you want a stronger coconut flavored lip balm, add Coconut Flavor instead of the Sugar Kisses Flavor.
