While I like coffee, I am particularly partial to lattes that are rich, sweet and creamy. When I sat down to design my formulation, I thought I would sweeten it with our Buttercream Flavor Oil. While the results were good, they didn’t have the rich, creamy vanilla flavor that I was looking for. So I went back to the testing kitchen. My favorite results included our Cheesecake Flavor Oil, rather than the Buttercream Flavor or the Natural Vanilla Flavor. I felt the Cheesecake Flavor gave the sweetness, vanilla notes and milk flavors I was looking for. If you love lattes, you have to give this recipe a try. It is awesome!
To start, weigh everything except your flavor oils into a microwave safe container. Heat gently in the microwave. Once the oils have completely melted, add the Sugar Baby Flavor Oil and Cheesecake Flavor Oil. Stir well.
From here, you can either pipette the mixture into your tubes, or you can use a filling tray. I like using a filling tray because they are simple and fast. If you are using a filling tray, insert your tubes into your tray. Flood the tray with your melted lip balm. Allow the mixture to cool. Scrape off the excess. I like to use a plastic putty knife. Remove the tubes from the tray then cap.
If you are going to pipette the lip balm into the tubes, fill the tube until you get a dome of liquid material at the top. Wax shrinks when it cools and doing this helps ensure that you get a very pretty top. Fill all of your tubes making sure they are domed on the top before they cool. (You may need to reheat your lip balm during this process. This is normal and to be expected.) Allow the tubes to cool and cap.
Now you can give your lip balm a pretty label or put it into a cute bag. Enjoy this great lip balm or give as gifts!
