    I was wondering if anyone has any tried and true lip balm recipes? Also what is the trick to keep honey and flavoured oils from seperateing in the hot oil when making lip balm? Thanks:)

    Not sure about the honey. But 1/3 oil, 1/3 butter (I have used shea it got grainy so switched to Palm Kernal Oil) and 1/3 wax. How much flavor oil did you use? I used around 2% and not have a problem with it seperating.

    I've never used honey to make lip balm, never even saw a recipe with honey in it. I've never had a problem with the flavored oils separating. Of course there's only a few drops in it so I don't see how there would ever be a problem with it.
