I'm obsessed with this stuff lately... I used to never make it and now, shazam!

The peach-ish one is honeysuckle & nectarine flavored. The purple one is lavender and vanilla, and both are awesome! The flavors are from Sweet Cakes (using their natural sweetener) and I am in love!

The recipe is a little softer than my standard lip balms, so that's why they're in these little jars rather than tubes. I did:

20% white beeswax (I usually use organic, raw, but didn't want the smokey scent)
15% avocado butter
10% shea butter
15% deodorized cocoa butter
40% avocado oil

They have a niiiiice, silky, glossy feel. They make me think of spring, which is good with all this darn snow on the ground!!

Sounds good, I've never played with avocado butter. Anything that comes from avocado=awesome in my book.

I should branch out into things like this. Hmm, where to get beeswax...
