Crafter’s Corner – Lip Balm

Who can resist a great lip balm? Especially one you get to customize to your liking! No more loving the flavor but hating the color or vice versa, now you get to love both! In our Crafter’s Corner we offer a lip balm kit where you get to choose everything you want, down to which kind of lip balm base you want. Base, color, flavor and packaging is completely up to you!


In this kit we offer 3 different lip balm bases; basic, glossy, & vegan. Our basic base consists of coconut oil, beeswax, sweet almond oil, & avocado oil. Our glossy base ingredients are beeswax, shea butter, & castor oil. And last but not least we offer a vegan option as well, that has coconut oil, candelilla wax, sweet almond oil, & avocado oil.

We also offer a 4 tube kit for $10 or an 8 tube kit for $15. You get to choose from these 3 bases in either a 4 tube or 8 tube kit. The fun thing about the 8 tube kit is you can split it up and make two different batches! This means you can make one batch pink and smell like vanilla and your other batch could be red and smell like acai berry!

After you choose which base you’d like to use, you then have a few more decisions to make. We have 8 different micas and oxides to choose from if you want to add color. You can make it light enough to be a tint, or you can make it dark enough to be a lip stick.


Next, you get to choose which flavor oil you’d like to use. There are 8 different flavor oils you get to choose from, as well as Peppermint 2nd Essential oil and Start Anise Essential Oil. These essential oils are considered lip safe and can go in lip balm.


Now that you have chosen your base, color and flavor oil you get to choose your packaging! We offer clear lip pots or clear lip balm tubes. We have a variety of different lip balm packaging that you can buy separately if you’d prefer!


Now you have picked out everything you need, now its time to make lip balm!

Scoop out the lip balm base in the ceramic dish provided for you. Put it in the microwave for 1 minute, if it is not all the way melted put back in for 30 seconds at a time. Be sure not to overheat as this will crystallize the butter in the balm.
This is what your lip balm should look like once taken out of the microwave.
9Now you can add the flavor oil. For every 4 tubes, add 1 mL flavor oil. Mix in well.
After the flavor oil is added, now is the time you can add color if desired. Add 4 mini scoops of color for a light tint to the lips. You can add more if you’d like it darker.

If for any reason your lip balm starts solidifying while you are adding your goodies pop it back in the microwave for 15 seconds until it is liquid again.

Pour your lip balm into your tubes or lip pots and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Once solidified, enjoy!
