Naturally Flavored Lip Balm

Lise

If you like making infused oils, you can use the oils to create all natural flavors for your lip balms. Pictured is a small collection I made to test a few ideas - all with handcrafted flavors. The light colored balms include vanilla-infused oil and a dash of plum oil for extra richness. The green balms are a mix of pepper and mint (see what I did there?) for a surprisingly spicy-fresh flavor, and the bright orange balms have both their color and flavor from the chili-infused oil that delivers a warming after-burn.

Learn how to make vanilla-infused oil on the main blog. There’s also a chili-infused oil how to on the main blog as well.

Do you have any favorite herbs you use to create flavors for your lip balms?

Chili for Skincare

Lise

Handcrafted chili oil has been useful in several products I have made over the past winter season. (think soothing muscle rub, spicy lip balm or warming foot rub).

Generally, oils for infusion should have a long shelf life, although there can be benefits from using a specific oil with a specific ingredient for infusion and then using the entire batch within a short time of making it.

If you’re interested in giving this a try, there’s a chili-oil how to right here on the main blog. Depending on the strength you are looking for, vary the type and amount of chilis you work with. There is tangible difference in heat and effect depending on which ingredients you choose.

Urucum - The Lipstick Tree

Pictured on the right is a plant known as ucurum. the INCI is Bixa Orellana and the common name for this botanical is The Lipstick Tree. 

I've been working with it over the past few months as a plant colorant and it is quite potent and functional. Although this picture was taken for a batch I made earlier this year, I am getting ready to start a fresh batch - infused in castor oil for an upcoming product.
