I have a newfound obsession with citrus essential oils, so I made these:


Citrus soap (lemon, orange, lime, and grapefruit EOs) and citrus lip balm (orange and litsea cubeba)


Vegan tangerine lip balm

Thanks for all the comments!

I've actually been using a bar of the soap as shaving soap and I love it.

The labels are standard sized address labels...but the clear kind.  I am worried, however, that they won't stick, especially in warm weather.  Maybe I should put an additional layer of clear sticky stuff around them so they stay put and the print won't wear off?  Or maybe those plastic sleeves that are like safety seals?

I don't want to rain on your parade because your stuff looks fabulous, but I understand that most citrus essential oils can be photosensitizing. The soap or something not leave on wouldn't be a concern, but I would worry about wearing the lip balm outdoors, even on a cloudy day in B.C. I have been dying to use my sweet orange with vanilla in a lip balm, but I have seen too many warnings about it to try.

Sorry to be a downer. On the up side, your labels are lovely! And I adore hempseed oil in a lip balm!
