If you love bananas you’re in for a treat! This lip balm doesn’t disappoint. Aside from all of the nourishing ingredients that will leave your lips supple and smooth, it’s packed full of flavor making taking care of your lips a delicious experience.
Banana cream pie without the calories? Yes, please!
1 TBS Coconut Oil
1 TBS Beeswax
½ TBS Shea Butter
½ TBS Cocoa Butter
Using a double boiler or similar set-up, melt the ingredients together over medium heat. Once melted, carefully remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool slightly (just a few minutes). Stir in the flavor oil starting with a few drops and increasing until you reach your desired flavor intensity (you can test this as you go by placing a drop on your finger and rubbing it over your lip).
Once the mixture is complete carefully transfer the liquid to your lip balm tins or jars. Allow the mixture to cool and solidify completely prior to use.
Use as often as you desire for soft, sweet, kissable lips!
Banana Cream Lip Balm Recipe
I am going to make this for my Grand daughters this Christmas. Thank you
Wonderful; she’ll love them!
hi if i do not have a double boiler could i possibly use the microwave ? thanks
Hi Mary, yes a microwave will work as well.
How many jars like in the picture can this recipe make
You should get around 3 to 4 of the 0.25 oz of the lip balm jars.
Approximately how many drops of flavor? Just an average would be fine. Thank you
Roughly 0.075 oz of flavor is recommended.
Hi! Can I use other smells or flavorings? I need a lip balm recipe, but I cannot find any with the flavor I am using.
how long does the lip balm last
This doesn’t have a shelf life, since zinc is not present in it for SPF; if zinc is added, the shelf life would be 2 years.
By no shelf life, do you mean it lasts basically forever?
It means that there isn’t a measurable expiration date, as SPF/zinc is not present.
