WHAT'S IN YOUR LIP BALM?
If you're prone to irritation, it's best to avoid:
- Salicylic Acid (aspirin)
- Aloe Butter
- Menthol, camphor and phenol
- Artificial colors
Instead, look for these ingredients (found in our kit instructions):

SELECTING A BUTTER & ADDITIONAL ESSENTIAL OIL "FLAVORS"
Depending on the Butter you use, may determine a lot of which oils/flavor combinations you’ll want to use.

- Chocolate Mint - Using Cocoa Butter as your base butter, add in a minty combination such as "Icy Mint," or "Pepperminty"
Made from the Mango seed kernel, this butter has a slightly sweet scent. Mango butter is hydrating and is naturally high in antioxidants and fatty acids. Mango Butter would make a great base for:
