Using my standard nourishing lip balm recipe was a given, but I did give him the choice of something minty or something fruity and he chose the latter.
What I ended up with something I truly found to be amazing? It’s light, fruity, and silky smooth. I just love playing around with lip balms, I could write a whole book full of lip balm recipes...but for now, just sharing my recipes will do!
Tango Mango Lip Balm Recipe

- Pour into lip balm tubes, cap, and cool completely.
