Notes

I was not sure what to think about using Sunflower Lecithin in a lip balm. It’s smell is a bit earthy. Fortunately, Honey Flavor Oil is a perfect complement. The finished lip balm smells and tastes like honey, so no worries!

The 50-gram test batch filled 11 of our regular lip balm tubes.

When I tried a bit of the balm on my chapped lips, I was impressed at how readily it absorbed. It made the dry, chapped portions feel moisturized without being overly waxy. I’ll call it a definite win!
