Avo Coco and Mango Moisturising Lip Balm

This natural Lip Balm only uses Cera Bellina as a hardener, with a touch of Coconut Oil (10%) Mango Butter (5%) to lower the melt point.  It sets up fairly firmly, but is probably not suited to Lip Tubes in the warmer months of the year.  To make it a lot softer and more gel like, just cut back the Cera Bellina and replace with more liquid oils.  The luscious colour comes from the Virgin Avocado Oil and it can be left unsweetened and unflavoured.  I like a touch of sweetness and used 1% Lip Smacking Sweetener in my batch.

This batch filled 7 x Blossoms Lip Pots and 2 Mini Mushroom Jars, so note if using "add to trolley" function below, we have included one sample pack of Blossoms Lip Pots and one 6 pack Baby Mushroom Jars so you'll have enough pots.  There's a load of oils left over - if you already make soap and B & B products, you probably already have them!  If you purchase more lip pots you can make 4 batches for the same price.

Ingredients:

*For Lip products suggested usage rate is 20%, but I have upped this to 25% in this formula.  If you prefer a softer product you can drop it back to 20g, and change the Mango Butter to 10g, or an even softer balm with adding the 5g to one of the liquid oils instead.

  • When the temperature is around 40°C, add Sweetener and Flavour Oil and stir well to combine
  • Use a cool glass or coffee mug base and drip a few drops of balm onto it, it will set up very quickly.  Test this cool balm for taste and firmness.
