This is a great lip flavor. It smells light, so you definitely have to use to 6% in your lip balms to get it to taste as potent as I like. This is a great product, smells like sweet strawberries, and incorporates in the balm easily!
smells light but I still love it
Neither I nor my friends can taste any hint of strawberry no matter how much I add to the lip balm. Very disappointed with this product and wouldn't recommend.097
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Ginger! I'm sorry you were disappointed with this flavor oil. We love the Jolly Rancher-like scent our Strawberry Flavor Oil has! Any flavor oil will scent you 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 will email you personally to discuss this further.
I used this in a lip balm and 2 days after using it I had red bumps around my lips and on my chest and stomach so I am thinking I have an allergic reaction. But my friends and family absolutely loves it so I guess I just can't use it.
Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Dani! I'm so glad your friends and family love the lip balm you made using our Strawberry Flavor Oil. Though, I'm sorry you had an allergic reaction to it. You may have better luck with our Papaya Flavor Oil, Passionfruit Rose Fragrance And Flavor Oil, or Watermelon Flavor Oil.
I have to use alot of this in my batches and still, it doesn't smell or taste like strawberry the way I was hoping it would. In fact, I accidentally mixed some of my unlabeled tubes while I was labeling them and I couldn't figure out what was strawberry and what was honey so I sold it all as honey.

Hi Jamie! I'm sorry this scent wasn't your favorite. Strawberry tends to be a lighter scent - we recommend about .0025 oz per ounce of lip balm, or about half a mL. Also, our flavoring oils are actually tasteless, so it won't have a strawberry taste. Our Sunday Night Spotlight: Flavoring Oils blog post has some great information. You may also like our Lip Smackin' Sweet Flavor Oil, which is a clear sweetener. I will be emailing you personally to help you troubleshoot!
