Lip Balm Supplies

If you are looking to create some homemade lip balm, then you will want to check out the lip balm supplies that are available at Natures Garden. Whether you want to use a lip balm base or create homemade lip balm from scratch, we have everything that you will need to make some fantastic lip care products. Further, there are all kinds of different ways to flavor, sweeten, and color your various lip balm recipes. So, you can use these cosmetic supplies to create fantastic lip balm recipes that both look and feel amazing.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm From ScratchLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm From Scratch

One way that you can create your own lip balm is from scratch. This means starting with the simplest ingredients to completely form the lip balm that you want. While you will have to either find a previously formulated recipe or create your own lip balm recipe, it is worth the effort to make a lip care recipe that is exactly what you need. You can either use one of our step-by-step recipes or you can create one of your very own. Further, you could even start with one of our recipes and change out some of the oils for ones that your prefer. Then, you will need to use a double boiler to melt your various oils and butters. After, all your cosmetic oils and butters are melted you can add in your choice of lip balm flavors and lip tint before you pour the mix into the lip balm tubes. So, you are able to create a recipe that is exactly what you need from the texture and hydration level to the color and flavor.

Lip Balm Supplies: Butters and Carrier Oils

If you are making your lip balm from scratch, then you will need to incorporate some Natural Butters and Natural Fixed Oils into your recipe. These cosmetic ingredients are essential for hydrating and rejuvenating your lips. Plus, you can add more to create a highly moisturizing lip balm or less to create a daily lip balm. One recipe that we have created from scratch is the Kahlua and Cream Lip Balm Recipe, which uses skin nourishing butters and oils that will protect your lips. The Coconut Oil is an oil that is smooth and sinks into the skin. Also, the Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter are butters can will help protect your lips for even longer.

Lip Balm Supplies: Hard Cosmetic Wax

Not only do you want cosmetic ingredients that will rejuvenate your lips, but you will need an ingredient that will help hold your lip balm ingredients together. If you don’t add a cosmetic wax to your recipe, it will likely be too soft. So, you will absolutely need a cosmetic wax if you are going to use a lip balm tube. The Beeswax White Pastilles is used most commonly and is useful for adding some integrity to your lip balm. This is the cosmetic wax that is added to our lip balm base recipe. Another option that you can choose is Candelilla Wax, which is a perfect wax for anyone avoiding animal products. So, this was the perfect cosmetic wax to add to our Vegan Lip Butter Recipe or to use when formulating your own vegan lip balm.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm BaseLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Base

One convenient cosmetic ingredient that you can use with your homemade lip balm supplies is the wholesale lip balm base. Although you are still able to customize your lip balm, you can start with an easy to use lip balm base to make the process easier. So, you can simply melt the base in the microwave using short intervals. Then, you can add your colorants and lip balm flavorings. Using this amazing lip balm base, you don’t have to create a recipe from scratch, but you can still customize your product. So, you can easily create some fantastic homemade lip care that looks and tastes exactly how you want.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip TintsLip Balm Supplies: Lip Tints

Also, you may want to add a lip tint to your lip balm creation. First, you can add one of our lip tints. We used these lip balm colorants to create our Chocolate Covered Strawberries Lip Balm Recipe as well as our Lipstick from Scratch Recipe. So, you can use these colorants to create a fun design or to add a bit of color to your lips. Additionally, you can use some herbs to naturally color your lip balm recipes. We used some beet root powder to create our Natural Beet Root Lip Gloss Recipe. So, you can use some pigmented herbs and spices to create a natural color to your homemade recipes.

Lip Balm Supplies: Mica Dust PowderLip Balm Supplies: Mica Dust Powder

Additionally, you can use mica to enhance your lip balm recipes. This way you lips will have a little shimmer and shine! We included the Diamond Dust Mica in our Kiss of Death Lip Venom Recipe. Additionally, you can use the Gold Mica Pigment in some of your very own lip balm recipes. These are a perfect way to glam up your lip balm recipes without adding any lip tint. However, adding some sparkle and shine to your pigmented lip balm would be even prettier!

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm FlavoringsLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Flavorings

Another great addition that you can make to your lip balm recipes is flavoring. First, you can try out one of our many lip balm flavorings. We used the scrumptious Blue Raspberry Slushie flavor in our Natural Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe. Additionally, you can use some essential oils to create delicious lip balm flavors. For example, we used lavender essential oil to create our White Chocolate Lavender Lip Balm Recipe. However, you will need to check the IFRA sheet to ensure that your essential oil choice is safe to be used in lip balms. Further, we wouldn’t recommend using photosensitive essential oils. Also, you can use natural lip balm flavors, like chocolate or honey. We tried out these sweeteners in our Honey Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe and in our Chocolate Avocado Lip Balm Recipe.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Sweeteners

Not only would you want to flavor your lip balm, but you may want to add a sweetener as well. There are a few sweeteners that you can add to your recipe to enhance the flavor. Although these ingredients won’t necessarily flavor your lip balm, it is perfect for sweetening the flavor you added. Also, you can use these ingredients to sweeten a plain or natural batch of lip balm. Regardless of how you want to flavor your lip balm, a sweetener is a perfect way to enhance it. So, check out the sweet options available in Natures Garden’s lip balm supplies.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm SweetenerLip Balm Supplies: Stevia

One way that you can sweeten your lip balm flavorings is with some powdered Stevia. We used this lip balm supply to create the Monkey Farts Lip Balm Recipe, which sweetens the scrumptious, tropical flavor of our Monkey Farts Flavoring. In this recipe we crushed the powder a bit more and then added a small amount to our lip balm. This helps to reduce the gritty texture that can occur by adding too much. But, you can use more of the Stevia if you would like to add some exfoliating power to your recipe.

Lip Balm Supplies: SorbitolLip Balm Supplies: Sorbitol

Additionally, you can try adding Sorbitol to your lip balm recipes. While there are many people that use and enjoy this sweetener in their lip balm recipes, we at Natures Garden prefer to use Stevia or a natural sweetener like chocolate. There are many that know exactly how to use this cosmetic ingredient, but it can be tricky to mix with the oils and butters. This complication is due to this sweetener being polar, which doesn’t mix with the non polar oils and butters. So, you will need an emulsifier and an understanding of cosmetic checmistry.

Lip Balm Supplies: SugarLip Balm Supplies: Sugar

Also, you can use real sugar to sweeten your lip balm recipes. Just know that adding sugar will likely make your lip balm gritty. So, you will only want to add sugar if you want to create a lip scrub. We used some white granulated sugar to create our Natural Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe. If you want to create a slightly softer sugar scrub, then you should try using brown sugar. We used this softer sugar in our Creme Brulee Lip Scrub Recipe, which creates a nice lip exfoliator.

Lip Balm Supplies: Disposable PipetsLip Balm Supplies: Disposable Pipettes

Another lip balm supply that you are going to want to have for your recipes is a disposable pipette. With other bath and body recipes you can pour your recipe into the containers. However, many of the lip balm containers are too small for you to be accurate. So, you can use these pipettes to fill your packaging supplies. This prevents you from wasting the lip balm that would miss the containers. Plus, you have more control, which is important for clear lip balm pots. Otherwise, it would be impossible to make straight layers. So, these are a crucial supply for creating lip balm effectively.

Lip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm PackagingLip Balm Supplies: Lip Balm Packaging

After you have created your lip balm, you are going to need to be able to package it! We have all kinds of wholesale lip balm containers that you can use for your lip balm recipes. First, we have lip balm pots and tins. We have a few different kinds of sizes and shapes that you can choose from to create the perfect lip balm recipes. We have things like the 0.35 oz Lip Slider Tins, the 6ml and 10 ml lip balm jars, the tri cosmetic container, and so many more options!

Another choice that you have for your lip care recipes is lip balm tubes. You can try out the regular lip balm tubes or a small deodorant stick. While a deodorant stick may sound like it would be too big for lip balm, it is actually pretty small. In fact, this tube is about the same size as a regular lip balm tube. The only difference is that the travel size deodorant tube has a more oval shape. Further, we have roll on lip gloss tubes, which would be perfect to add to your lip gloss making supplies! Check out all the options you have available at Natures Garden on the Lip Balm Containers page of our website.

Lip Balm Supplies: Our Delicious Inspiration

We often are inspired by delicious foods to create some fantastic homemade recipes. One of these inspired recipes is our yummy Strawberry Cheesecake Lip Balm Recipe. Of course, we had to create a lip balm recipe after having some scrumptious homemade strawberry cheesecake. It is almost impossible to resist something that is this good!  If you want a piece of the real thing, then you should try out this Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake recipe from Your Home Based Mom. This recipes uses fresh, juicy strawberries with sweet glaze on a creamy cheesecake that is all sitting on a graham cracker crust.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits


This entry was posted in activated charcoal, melt and pour soap, natural melt and pour soap, Natures Garden, soap, soap method, soapmaking and tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on by .

Melt and Pour Soap BenefitsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits

We at Natures Garden would like to share some of the melt and pour soap benefits with customers that may not know too much about soaping. There are quite a few different methods one can use to create soaps, so it can be a bit overwhelming for new soapers. Every method has some benefits that you may enjoy, but you must choose the method that will be best for you and the situation you are in.

While many find melt and pour soap to be one of the easier ways to make soap at home, even the most experienced soapmaker may come back to this method. Honestly, it all depends on what the soaps are needed for and the time you have available. So, at one point or another, anyone can benefit from knowing a bit about this method. If you have never used melt and pour soap or are thinking about trying this method again, then we’d like to share with you all of the great things about melt and pour soap. So, here is why melt and pour soap is a great soap making method!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap MakersMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Great for Beginning Soap Makers

Due to a few different aspects of this soap making method, beginning soap makers may want to start with this method. This is an easy way to introduce soap making into your crafting. This method won’t have you working with lye right out of the gate. This can help prevent you from feeling overwhelmed with everything all at once. Instead, a new soap maker can get used to the time sensitive nature of cooling soap, adding fragrance oils, and coloring soap. Plus, this method skips right to the fun of creating to let you experience all the fun. Melt and pour soap allows you to have fun trying out soap making before jumping into more complex methods. You can create very simple soaps that are still cute with this method without taking too much time or skill to complete.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Creativity and Additional Ingredients

There is so much that you can do with melt and pour soap! As long as you have some molds, additives, and a creative mind you can make anything you want. Further, you can look to our Melt & Pour Soap Recipes page for soap making inspiration and ideas. In addition, you can print out the step by step soap making tutorials for each project on that page. While melting soap and pouring it into molds may sound like it is simple and boring, we can show you that there is so much that you can create with this method of soap making.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Manipulating the Shape of the Soap

Since melt and pour soap will take on the shape of whatever it sets up in, it is pretty easy to shape the soap into whatever you’d like. For example, our Lollipop Soap Recipe used a flat shaped soap layer and cut it into strips that we curled to create a lollipop appearance. Also, the Fresh Fallen Leaves Soap Recipe used straws to have soap shaped like a tree trunk. This along with the melt and pour soap leaves created a very pretty soap! Plus, you can make more simple soaps that are super cute like the Neapolitan Cupcake Soap Recipe, which uses a layered cupcake base and whipped frosting on top.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and MicaMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Adding Herbs and Mica

Also, you can incorporate micas and even herbs into your soap! You can take your chosen additives and include it right into your melted soap. We have done this with our Blarney Stone Soap Recipe. Gold mica was added to the clear melt and pour soap base and can be seen incorporated right into the soap bar. So, you can use this technique to create a prettier appearance for your soaps. Additionally, you can add herbs or powders to provide your soap with certain properties. For example, we created the Activated Charcoal Soap Recipe with activated charcoal powder to provide a more cleansing bar of soap that provides a deep pore clean. Regardless of why you want to add herbs, mica, or other powders, the best part is that you have the option to if you need it!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed SoapMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Making Embed Soap

Additionally, you can add soap embeds to your melt and pour soap bars. This technique gives you the freedom to create even more creative kinds of soap. This would have you create a smaller soap prior to creating your soap bar so that you can add shapes into the soap bar itself.

While it will all be melt and pour soap, you will be able to use the embedded soap to create designs or certain effects. For example, creating the swirl for the Cinnabun Melt and Pour Soap Recipe. We wanted to add a swirl to make the soap bar look more like a cinnamon roll and less plain after we cut our soap loaf. Plus, it just looks so cute! Also, we used this embed soap idea to make the seeds for our Watermelon Soap Recipe. Otherwise, our soap wouldn’t have looked like a slice of watermelon! Sometimes the embed soap really pulls your soap idea together!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Option to Make Clear Soap

Another creative option unique to melt and pour soap is creating a bar that you can see straight into. We all know that we can see embed soaps by cutting a loaf of soap into a few individual bars. However, diamond clear melt and pour soap offers another way to get creative with embed soaps. You can create a bar of soap with solid shapes and colors inside that you will be able to see without cutting.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap RecipeSimply add a layer of diamond clear soap, place your solid object or colored soap inside, and add your top layer. This leaves you with a solid bar of soap with a fun design inside. We have used this method to create the Mango Loofah Melt and Pour Soap Recipe, where you can see the loofah inside the soap bar. Another idea is to use this soap technique to create kids toys with fun little toys inside. 

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Some Choice with the Ingredients

While you aren’t in complete control of the ingredients that are in your soap base, there are some things that you can do. First of all, you can choose your type of soap base. There are a lot of different melt and pour soap bases to choose from that all have different ingredients. For example, you can choose the SLS FREE Glycerin Melt and Pour Soap if you are looking for soap base without SLS. We have a lot of different types that may suit your individual soaping needs on Natures Garden’s Melt and Pour Soap page. Some of my favorites are our Shea Butter MP Soap Base and the Honey MP Base. Whether you are looking for a with a little extra of something, soap without a certain ingredient, or a base with a certain appearance, you can find all our soap bases on our site.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling Certain IngredientsMelt and Pour Soap Benefits Controlling the Ingredients

Not only can you choose different types of soap base to control the ingredients, but you are in control of scenting and coloring. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, then you can create melt and pour soaps that agree with your skin. First, those with sensitivities to fragrances and essential oils can leave the bar unscented. Also, those that would rather not use liquid soap dye can use natural herbs to color the soap or leave the soap it’s natural color. Thus, you do have some control over the content of your soap bars.

Furthermore, you can add a little bit more of your favorite oils of butters to the soap base you choose. If you find a soap base that has all the ingredients you like, but you wish that it included another ingredient, you have the freedom to add something else. However, you need to be careful not to add too much as this can change the bar and could lose its lather. So, we would not recommend introducing more than a tablespoon of your added oils or butters per pound of mp soap. But, you can play with your recipe to find the right proportion for your soap bars.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Convenience of this Method

Another great reason to work with melt and pour soap is that it is super easy to create soaps! This soap making method is very simple in every way from prepping to create the soap to the clean up process. So, let’s go over all the ways that melt and pour soap making saves you time and effort.

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits Can Use the Soap Immediately

Also, you can use your soaps immediately after you make them. Obviously, the melt and pour soap base has been previously created and gone through saponification before you buy the melt and pour soap base. While you don’t have to worry about the lye, the soap already has it in the soap. But, the lye that was used to make the soap has already had time to fully react before the soap bases were sold. This means that the curing process has already completely finished before you even open the soap package. So, no need to wait after you form your masterpieces! As soon as your soaps are colored, scented, and out of their molds it can go straight into the bath tub!

Melt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with LyeMelt and Pour Soap Benefits No Need to Deal with Lye

While lye is safe with the necessary safety precautions, sometimes it is just easier to let somebody else do all the leg work. In this case, our melt and pour soap base lets you buy your slabs of soap after they have cured. Thus, there is a lot less to prepare when working with melt and pour soap. For example, you won’t need to take as many safety precautions or wear as much protective clothing during the creation of your soap. Also, you won’t have to deal with making the lye water solution or combining the oils at the right temperature. So, no need to have vinegar handy because lye burns won’t ever happen with this soaping method. Thus, melt and pour soap making is just that much easier to work with!

Further, the clean up for this method is very easy. Since this the melt and pour soap base is already completed soap, all you really need to do is wash your utensils with water. No need to worry about unreacted lye and no intense scrubbing or vinegar required. Just like soap, your left over base will rinse right out of your bowl.

What Does Snow Angels Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Nature’s Garden is a minty aroma with a buttercream top note.  Compare NG’s snow angels fragrance to Yankee’s Snow Angels aroma.

How Do Our Customers Use Snow Angels Fragrance Oil in Bath and Body Recipes?

Our customers can use this minty sweet fragrance oil to create all kinds of bath and body products. Bath oils, bath gels, soaps, bath bombs, and other related bath products can be scented with a fragrance concentration of 5%. Body products that are meant to be used directly on the skin and not washed off immediately, such as lotions or perfumes, can only use a concentration of 3% for this scent.

Also, cold process soap can be made with this aroma. Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results have shown that this fragrance oil is great for this method of creating soap. A batch that uses this scent has no ricing and no acceleration. While our tests did reveal some separation during the curing process, the fragrance reabsorbed later on. Further, this scent will cause a dark chocolate discoloration in the soap and the bars will have a strong scent retained. Due to the vanillin content of 17%, it it likely that adding vanilla white stabilizer will reduce the discoloration. If you wish to color any of your bath and body products, then feel free to use your prefered shade of soap colorant, but we recommend not coloring bath and body products that use this scent.

How Do Our Customers Use Snow Angels Fragrance Oil in Room Scenting Recipes?

Room scenting products can be created with this sweet and minty fragrance oil. Potpourri, reed diffusers, and incense can each be scented with up to 50% of this fragrance oil. Also, any kind of homemade cleaning product can be created with 5% of this vanilla mint scent. Products made of aroma beads will retain a nice and strong scent for this fragrance oil.

Furthermore, this wonderful fragrance oil can be used to create all kinds of wax based room scenting products. Candles and wax melts made of either vegetable waxes or paraffin wax can use up to 10% of this fragrance oil. Joy wax and wow wax will both perform perfectly for this scent and soy wax will have a nice and strong aroma for this fragrance. We suggest using no color for this fragrance oil. If you want to color your candles and tarts, then you can use liquid candle dyes or color blocks. As always, just remember not to use crayons in the candle products or you will likely have your wick clogged.
