Monkey Farts Lip Balm Flavoring

Natures Garden Monkey Farts Flavoring Oil (unsweetened)-  The aroma of our famous Monkey Farts flavoring begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, juicy bubblegum, and strawberries; with a hint of vanilla as a base note.  For use in lip balms, massage oils, body sprays, perfumes, bath/body products, and pet bath products.  Phthalate Free. None of our flavorings contain any gluten, formaldehyde, or formaldehyde releasing agents.

Flavoring oils are different from fragrance oils. 

Flavoring oils are regulated by the FDA because they are designed to be used for consumption or for cosmetic products that may be ingested. The ingredients contained in flavorings are considered GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe) by the FDA.   Flavorings developed for lip balms smell, but do not taste.  It is only when sweetener is added to the flavoring that you can taste the flavoring.  Since lip balm, lip gloss, and  lipstick are worn on the lips, flavorings are used to scent them. Our flavoring oils are created using distilled, fractionated coconut oil as their solvent. Some of the ingredients in our flavorings are natural, while other ingredients are not considered natural.  Flavorings typically do not have as strong of a scent throw as fragrances do.  Therefore, it is not advisable to use flavorings in candles, porpourri, or smelly jellies. Some people choose to use flavoring oils in their pet bath products as opposed to fragrance oils because flavoring oils are considered safe for consumption.

Fragrances are regulated by IFRA (International Fragrance Association), and typically are not safe to use in applications that are worn on your lips.  However, if a fragrance oil is listed as safe to be used on the lips under category #1 of the IFRA Compliance sheet for that particular fragrance, it can be used in lip applications. Fragrances are made using solvents which allow for better scent throw than flavorings.  Therefore, we suggest using fragrances, as opposed to flavorings, in candles, smelly jellies, potpourri, soap, and most other bath products.

If you require that your product is sweetened, add powdered stevia extract with maltodextrin.  Stevia powdered extract with maltodextrin is an all-natural sweetener that mixes nicely with lip balm base without producing the excessive gritty feeling that most sweeteners produce. Stevia is approximately 10-15 times sweeter than sugar, and a little bit of this product goes a long way. You will notice that maltodextrin is added to the stevia powdered extract.  Maltodextrin is an all-natural carbohydrate obtained from grain products, and it gives the stevia better flow/dispersion in lip balm bases; reducing the gritty feel.

Suggested usage of flavoring oil in lip balms range from .4-4% in the finished product.

Reviewer: from Pratt, KS US

this flavoring came in with my lip balm kit I ordered, it was only a 2 ml bottle and i poured the whole bottle in the 2 ounces of wax just as the recipe card said. it smells fantastic but i cant taste it in the lip balm at all and i did use the stevia that came with it, maybe not enough as it wasn't sweet tasting. a friend of mine was joking around about the name of this flavor for an hour making all kinds of jokes about it, was good fun lol.

I love the feel of this balm, totally awesome!!! Monkey Farts smells great the only thing I can't seem to get right is the sweetening part. I still could not get it to taste sweet at all.... I put mine in a 10ml pot. Anyone got any suggestions. I am new at this...

Reviewer: from Netherlands

I bought this one based on previous reviews. I don't know if NG had it reformulated in the mean time, but it failed completely in my lip balms! I used max amount and couldn't smell a thing! Very disappointing. I have been using previously Creme Brulee and that one was a dream!

This is a very sweet and fruity type fragrance. Tried w/o any sweetener in NG lipbalm base and it works great. Tinted the balm w/ a yellow color.

Maybe it's me but I'm not really getting banana, I also didn't use much in the lip balm. Either way it's a great flavor/scent. I had a few say they didn't like flavored lip balm but they did like this.

I thought I would be marketing this to young kids...nope, adults get a good giggle at this too. For every one person who sneers at this name, you'll get another 6 who say "I have to get this, the name rocks!" Though I have to say, get one kid at a market or fair to like this flavor and every kid will be a-runnin'. :)
