I don't know what happened

Everybody seems to love this stuff. We had to throw away 50 lip balms because of the aftertaste. It SMELLS DIVINE. But when put on the lips and tasted it's disgusting. Maybe I got a bad batch, but this is BAD BAD BAD.

Hi Charlie! I'm so glad you love the smell of our Buttercreme Flavor Oil though I'm sorry you were disappointed in the taste. Our Flavor Oils are not meant to have a taste, they are lip safe fragrances. To get a taste in your lip balm we would recommend using the flavor oils with Stevia or our Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil which will add a sweetness to the balm.

No doubt, it's just yummy! Great by itself, great mixed with the chocolate orange truffle in a lip balm, mmmmm!!!

My daughters loved this oil so much that we not only used it for lip balm but also in some bath salts, we blended it wth orange essential oils and it smells delicious.

Great with lavender

I mixed this with lavender in lip balm and it made a lovely florally, herby, butter cream scent. It is very popular. I also mixed with mint for a seasonal candycane flavor.

Smells Good, Tastes Bitter

I have tried 4 test batches of lip balm and I cannot get this flavor oil to work! I have been testing with 3-4 standard sized tubes per batch using between 10 and 25 drops of flavor (10, 15, 20, 25), and I cannot get a single batch to not taste bitter. So frustrating! I am following BB's "fun summer lip balm" recipe exactly as shown on the Soap Queen blog post but with this FO instead of Coconut. I've had this happen with other FO's before, but usually lowering the amount works out fine. Not in this case. Did I get a bad bottle?? Even using less than 1% still tastes bitter, and all my oils/waxes are brand new, so I know they're not rancid or anything. I am ready to give up.

Hi Gina! I'm sorry this product wasn't your favorite. This flavor oil is synthetic, so it will not go bad. Also, flavor oils will scent your lip balm nicely, but they won't flavor it. You can read more about that in this Sunday Night Spotlight: Flavoring Oils blog post. If you want your balms sweetened, you can add Lip Smacking Sweet Flavor Oil. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!
