Winter is right around the corner.  Along with the holiday season.  Well, for that reason, Natures Garden has created our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe.  This shimmering lip gloss recipe uses our natural lip balm base.  Also, the recipe contains pure peppermint essential oil, giving the recipe a natural peppermint flavor.  In addition, since we love all things that sparkle, we added a little shimmer with our diamond dust mica pigment!  In this recipe we also show you how to add chocolate to your lip balm recipes.  We are sure both your and your customers will love our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe!

Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe 3
Step 1
:  Begin with cleaning your work area.  Also, clean and sanitize the supplies you will be using.  I would also suggest wearing a Natures Garden apron to protect your clothing, as well as a hair net and gloves.  Set out your lip balm pots, so they are ready to be filled.

Step 2: 
Once you are prepared, get your scale out.  In a microwave safe bowl, weigh out 3.35 ounces of our all natural lip balm base.

Step 3:  Next, in your microwave, melt the lip balm base.  You want to melt it slowly.  We suggest heating it in 30 second intervals, stirring as you heat it.  Heat only until your base is liquefied.  I should note, another option is to melt the base in a double boiler.  However, we chose to use our microwave.

Step 4:  Now, in the second bowl melt your white chocolate wafers.  We use seven chocolate wafers.  The chocolate is used as a sweetener in our Winter Wonderland Lip Balm Recipe.  Again, melt your chocolate in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.

Step 5:  Once both the base and chocolate are melted, add the chocolate to the base.  Stir well to incorporate the white chocolate in your lip balm.

Step 6:  Add your mica.  While the base is still in a liquid state, mix in 1/2 teaspoon of Natures Garden’s diamond dust mica.

Step 7:  Add your essential oil.  Use a disposable pipette to add 20 drops of our peppermint essential oil to your melted lip balm base.  Stir well to incorporate.

Step 9:  Once your lip balms set up completely, place the white lids on top.  Your Winter Wonderland Lip Balms are now ready to use!  We hope that you enjoy it as much as we do!

Making your own lip balm is one of the easiest things to do.  By using Natures Gardens all natural lip balm base, you can quickly create your own lip balm.  With a few other supplies such as lip balm containers, flavoring, lip tints, and sweetener; you can take your lip balm to the next level.

To make your very own flavored lip balm using the all natural base, here is what you have to have:
All Natural Lip Balm Base
Lip Flavorings– now this list contains 24 different flavorings to choose from.  But, if you are wondering which flavorings are the most popular right now, they are: Juicy Watermelon, Strawberry Sorbet, Tropical Paradise, and Frozen Margarita.
Powdered Stevia (optional) but here is what you want to sweeten your lip balm or you can sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers or white chocolate wafers.
Lip Tints (optional) but here if you want to tint your lips
Microwavable Bowl
Stirring Utensil
Pipettes (optional) but a great way to transfer the liquid lip balm to its container before it hardens
Containers–  this link will show a variety of lip balm containers from sticks to tins

Now, when it comes to actually making the lip balm, here are the steps:

1.  Scoop out some of the all natural lip balm base.  Place this into your microwaveable bowl.  Place the bowl into the microwave.  Heat in 30 second increments until melted.  If you are going to sweeten your lipbalm using chocolate wafers, you will want to melt the chocolate along with your lip balm base.

2.  Once the lip balm is melted, carefully remove it from the microwave.  If you are tinting your lip balm, add some colorant now and stir.  Obviously, the more colorant you add, the darker your lip balm will be.

3.  If you are adding stevia, you will want to crush it down even finer.  Because the stevia will not dissolve but only suspend in the lip balm the finer you can get it the better.  Once added, stir.

4.   Next, add a few drops of flavoring, and then stir again.

5.  Finally transfer your lip balm into its packaging.  Allow the lip balm to fully set up (which will not take too long).  Once your lip balm is firm, it is ready to use.

Making your own flavored lip balm is just that simple.  A great project to do with kids at birthday parties, sleepovers, or on a rainy day; this craft is simple, takes very little time, and is super easy to clean up.

Now, if you are interested in making your own lip balm from scratch, there are also other free recipes available on the Natures Garden website.  To view these recipes, you can simply click on this link.  Offering quite the variety, some of Natures Gardens more popular recipes are: Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm RecipeVegan Lip Butter, and the Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss Recipe, but there are many more to choose from.
