Is flavor oil good for lips?
Flavor oils are really lip-safe fragrances. Flavor oils are used to scent your lips. Commercial products that seem to have a taste actually use a sweetener (commonly aspartame or other sugar substitute). The sweetener tricks your brain into thinking you are tasting the flavor when you are actually smelling it.
How much essential oil do you put in a balm?

Can I use vanilla extract in lip balm?
