Huckleberries in Africa Lip Balm

Editor’s note: Due to supply challenges, our Baobab Butter is being discontinued. Good substitutions would be Turmeric Butter or Hemp Butter.

We recently had someone ask our Technical Support Team what a lip balm made with Baobab Butter would be like. I had to admit that I wasn’t completely sure, so I whipped up a quick batch!

Finished tubes of the Huckleberries in Africa Lip Balm.

I’m using the tutorial in the Recipes section on our website called Make Your Own Lip Balm. I’m going to make a few changes to the recipe, but the basic bones of the recipe are going to stay intact.

  • 20% Beeswax
  • 25% solid at room temperature oil
  • 15% brittle at room temperature oil
  • 40% liquid oil at room temperature

I increased the Beeswax for a bit of extra firmness, and I also used a bit more liquid oils than the recipe above. Come join me today in the blog kitchen as I make a lip balm that is tasty, easy, and fun!


Beeswax Beads, Light
Cocoa Butter, White
Avocado Oil
Sunflower Oil
Coconut Oil
Baobab Butter
Huckleberry Flavor Oil
Sugar Baby Flavor Oil
Microwave Safe Container
Containers of your choice (I used the Silver 0.15 Lip Balm Tubes and Silver Lip Tube Caps.)
Lip Tube Filling Tray

Recipe: (Fills 50-55 of the 0.15 oz lip balm tubes)

Recipe in Ounces
2.1 ounces Beeswax Beads, Light
1.49 ounces Cocoa Butter, White
1.49 ounces Avocado Oil
2.66 ounces Sunflower Oil
2.13 ounces Coconut Oil
0.32 ounces Baobab Butter
0.21 ounces Huckleberry Flavor Oil
0.11 ounces Sugar Baby Flavor Oil
Recipe in Percentages
21% Beeswax Beads, Light
14% Cocoa Butter, White
14% ounces Avocado Oil
25% Sunflower Oil
20% Coconut Oil
3% Baobab Butter
2% Huckleberry Flavor Oil
1% Sugar Baby Flavor Oil

Weigh everything into a microwave-safe container except the flavor oils. Heat gently until everything is liquid. If you have a few stubborn pieces of wax, remove the container from the microwave and stir until they melt. Add the Huckleberry and Sugar Baby flavor oils and mix well. Pour the lip balm into your containers. If you are using tubes, you can either use a pipette to fill tubes, or you can use one of our fabulous filling trays! Allow the lip balm to cool. Cap and enjoy!

Lip Balm Notes: I love the creamy and glossy texture of this lip balm! It has a heavier, lustrous feeling that is perfect for giving my winter chapped lips some wonderful TLC. I was impressed that I was able to keep a tube in my pocket next to a pocket warmer without having my lip balm melt! This is definitely a great lip balm for year-round use and for both casual and fancier environs. Would I make this recipe again? Oh yeah!
