Question via email:
I found your site from a Pinterest board. Just wondering how you colour
the lip balm and bars if you didn't want a natural look. My daughter
loves pink! Will colouring it change the consistency?
Answer: I've colored the lip balm with something called carmine (it's insect
material but you might not have wanted to know that!). Here's a video I did on that:

- I highly recommend the products and I also get a cut if you purchase
through the link) and look for their mica powders. Some are safe for the
lips and some are not. Just make sure whatever colorant that you use, that
it's not a water based colorant because there is no water in the lotion - it's all oils/wax.
BUT, I would only tint a lip balm and not a lotion bar, or your body
will become that color!
Here's my carmine-tinted lip balm mixture:
