Project Description

This simple lip balm combines kukui nut oil with another popular tropical ingredient – coconut oil! A bit of white beeswax gives the lip balm firmness.

Kukui nut oil (pronounced koo-koo-ee) feels ultra luxurious on the skin. The kukui nut (or candelnut) tree is the state tree of Hawaii, and residents there have used the oil for many years. It’s commonly used in massage and face oils because it’s lightweight and doesn't leave skin feeling greasy.

This simple lip balm combines kukui nut oil with another popular tropical ingredient – coconut oil! A bit of premium white beeswax gives the lip balm firmness. 

A touch of coconut flavor oil gives the balm a light, tropical scent. If you’re unfamiliar with flavor oils, they are essentially lip-safe fragrance oils. Interestingly, they don’t flavor the balm. If you’d like to taste the balm, you can add a touch of sweetener like Stevia or the lip smacking sweet flavor oil.
