Coffee Oil Lip Balm
|Coffee Oil. This scrumptious oil is new to our catalog and it is simply wonderful. I have never smelled anything that smells so like a small Mom & Pop coffee shop. This oil is very dark in color and I found it begging me to make a lip balm with it. Come join me in the kitchen for the perfect coffee lip balm!
In this recipe, one of the oils I used was Hydrogenated Soybean Oil. Hydrogenated Soybean Oil is very nice in lip balm because it adds a smooth, creamy and almost buttery texture. I feel like a queen when wearing lip products with Hydrogenated Soybean Oil.
I also used Argan Oil in this recipe. Argan Oil is high in oleic and linoleic fatty acids. These lend a longer shelf life to the oil as well a deep penetrating properties. A perfect luxury oil to match the Coffee Oil in my opinion!
The Sugar Kisses Flavor Oil really rounded out the Coffee Oil and made it more palatable. This lip balm was like a strong cup of coffee. Not an espresso mind you, just a stronger cup of coffee. The next time I make this, I might consider adding some Natural Vanilla Oil or Buttercream Flavor Oil. What would you do?
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.
