  2. Hi, we are planning to try this with our Girl Scout Troop. Some of the girls asked if we could tint them slightly. Have you tried that or do you have any suggestions? Thanks for the very clear instructions!

    1. Hi Kim!

      Julie asked about this very same thing a few weeks ago – it’s a bit further down in the comments. Basically, I haven’t colored this lip balm myself, but you can do it by adding either mica powders (that come in a variety of colors) or certain root powders, like alkanet or beet.

      If you scroll down a bit you’ll be able to see my reply in much more detail (I’d just be repeating myself here) ^_^

      Let me know if anything else isn’t clear.

    1. Hi Angie!

      Well, powdered cinnamon wouldn’t really mix in properly – the powder would be somewhat suspended or, more likely, sink to the bottom. But you could infuse the olive oil in powdered cinnamon previously and then use that to make the lip balm.

      To infuse it there are two main methods: letting it sit in olive oil for 2 or 3 weeks (then strain), or by simmering it in a double boiler for 20 or 30 minutes (and strain).

      Hope that helps!
