What ingredients should you avoid in lip balm?
Avoid lip balms that contain menthol, camphor, phenol or any sort of alcohol. These ingredients may provide an immediate cooling sensation but can irritate the skin. In some cases they even remove the outer layers of skin leaving your lips unprotected and susceptible to environmental hazards.
Can I use vanilla extract in lip balm?
NOTE: I would NOT use Vanilla Extract to scent or flavor your balm as it does NOT mix well with the other oils and you’ll end up with a kind of splotchy looking balm. This is just enough color to tint the balm, and give a VERY slight pink tint when applied to the lips.
What essential oils are safe for lip balm?

Sweetening your lip balm: Natures Garden has tested numerous sweeteners for lip balms. We have found that a powdered stevia extract with maltodextrin works the best. Simply add a very small amount of powdered stevia with maltodextrin to your flavoring, and add to your melted lip balm base.
