Step 5: Once it is all melted, remove from heat and let it sit for 3 minutes. While waiting the 3 minutes, line up our lip balm containers so you can fill them.

Step 6: Add wild orange essential oil and pure vanilla extract and stir.

Step 7: Pour mixture into the lip balm containers and let them cool before capping. Be careful not to overfill. It is easy to do, trust me.

    Where do you get the containers with lids?

    1. I got them from amazon. Amazon is my best friend for when I have to find things. :)

  2. Great recipe! I’m not fond of the Shea & Cocoa butter smell, so I use Mango butter, which in this case works particularly amazing! Also, I squeezed in some fresh Clementine juice to mix in, and it makes it smell incredible. I could eat it. Thanks for the post! I needed something different to do for the holidays besides the usual!

    1. Did you use a small clementine to extract the juice and did you omit the essential oil?

    2. Did you extract the juice of a clementine instead of using the essential oil? If so, how much did you put in? Thank you.

  3. hi! what is the shelf life of this balm?

    1. I would think it would be anywhere from 3 months to a year.

      Signs to look for if you think it has gone bad:
      Change in color, Change in Smell, Spots form on the balm (could be mold or bacteria), and if the balm becomes thin.

      I hope this helps!

  4. Can I use vanilla oleoresin instead of extract? And will tubes work for this?

    1. Sorry, I am not sure what Vanilla oleoresin is so I can’t tell you for sure if it will work. Yes, you can use the tubes as well. I just chose the round containers.

  5. I tried your recipe and when I added the vanilla extract in it just congealed. Did I do something wrong. Is this what yours did.

    1. I don’t think so. I can see in the containers that the vanilla solidified first. When I flip it over, I can see it at the bottom.

  6. Would you be able tell me the measurements for 1 of these lip balms? I would like to see if I like it before making such a large quantity.

    1. Sorry, I don’t know what the measurements for 1 is.

  7. To make the orange creamsicle lip balm, could I omit the vanilla extract? I am not fond of vanilla. I will be making these but putting them in tubes which I just purchased from Amazon. Thank you for your recipes. When I make salves and lip balms, I keep them all in the refrigerator and they keep very well for a long time.

    1. Sure, you can omit the vanilla. That is fine. Thanks for the tip for keeping them longer!

  8. Do you have a printable recipe for this? I’d like to keep it to add to my book.

    1. Linda, Sorry I do not have a printable version at the moment.

  9. I made this tonight and it smells heavenly however when I added the vanilla it completely separated. It made me think that the extract is water based and adding it to the oils/waxes it isn’t going to mix. Nice idea though. I was able to let the vanilla settle at the bottom and not let it mix in my tubes. I didn’t want the cocoa flavor and I didn’t have Shea so I just used mango. It turned out fabulous.
