Lemonade Lip Balm
- 1 TBS Coconut Oil
- 1 TBS Beeswax
- ½ TBS Shea Butter
- ½ TBS Cocoa Butter
- Lemonade Flavor Oil (to taste)
- Lip Balm Tubes (you can also use the jars or tins)
- Lip Balm Filling Tray
Combine coconut oil, beeswax, shea butter and cocoa butter in a glass bowl. Melt using a double boiler or similar set-up. Remove the melted mixture from the heat and stir in the flavor oil starting with a few drops and increasing the amount until you reach the intensity of flavor you desire (to test the flavor, rub a small drop of the mixture on your lip). Carefully transfer the mixture into small lip balm jars or tubes. Allow to cool completely prior to use.

How many tubes with this recipe make?
Interested in how many this makes, as well. Thank you.
I’m allergic to coconut oil, what can i substitute?
You can use any of our carriers oils that you are not allergic to.
Can I use essential oils instead of lemonade flavoring?
Our essential oils are not food grade certified; therefore, we cannot recommend that they be used in lip balms.
It was my understanding that the therapeutic grade oils are safe to use in these recipes? If not I just wasted a lot of money on an order of them.
I apologize, essential oils are not food grade and we do not recommend using them to make lip balm; however, any of the flavors an be used.
How do you color lip balm?
You can use beetroot powder for example, to obtain a red/purple shade/coloured lip balm.
maybe with a drop of food coloring, which may or may not interfer with you calling your product organic or all natural.
Good advice; FD&C and Lake colors can be used (unfortunately, we don’t sell these), and most them are not all natural or organic.
You might want to make sure that you can sell it with food coloring in it… unless you are making it for personal use only.
I tripled the recipe ingredients and it filled 21 tubes

It is a solid under 76 degrees, and melts at 76 degrees or higher.
Hello I was wondering if I had to use bulk apothecary flavor oils for this recipe or could I use a different brand flavor oil?
Any will work for you, ours just smell the best 🙂
