Lip balm Trial 2     Cindy

 

Is the texture good?

Does the scent smell good or too strong?

What should I change about it?

Yes                              A little hard

Good, I like lemon   Too strong

Change a scent         Don’t dump essential oil in your lip balm and add more shea butter

A little strong                                   Good smell                                Yes, lemon smells good

Next time add less scent               Don’t forget to add scent in   Nothing 😀

 

Reflection

 

Ok, so I might have forgot to put essential oils RIGHT AFTER the wax and oil was melted. Therefore, it has no smell and there was a lockdown when I had already poured the mixture in, so I didn’t get to put essential oil in. Then I WANTED to drop A FEW drops in after it was solid (BAD IDEA) and I dropped like 10 drops in by accident  but I poured some out. Now there is smell on the tip of the lip balm and none on the rest. Next time, I should look at the instructions carefully. I would change a scent for my trial 3 because I’ve been using lemon every time.
