RECIPE: Basic Lip Balm

Get started making lip balm with this basic recipe. This recipe uses Crafter's Choice® Lip Balm Base and is enhanced with vanilla flavor and a shimmery white color. The recipe can be easily customizable by swapping out the flavor oil and color to your preference. If you choose to make substitutions, make sure you choose a flavor oil with an IFRA maximum of 1.75% or greater and a powder color that is approved for lip products and mixes best with oil.
