Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 33 Customer Reviews)
Our Lip Balm Base is specially formulated to moisturize dry lips. This hydrating formula made with beeswax, supports the lips with vitamin and nutrient rich oils while adding a transparent, soft shine to lips. This base has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Botanical extracts and various natural raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: Please refer to recipes in order to know exactly how much percent of botanical extracts and natural ingredients can be added to the base. Exceeding the amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.

Rating: My clients love this lip balm! I also offer it as a free sample to new clients and they keep coming back for more!
By:Cassandra, Stratford, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This wonderful formula is so smooth and lasts a long time on your lips. It is very easy to create custom colours with micas and oxides. As mentioned by another reviewer, a little beeswax will firm it up, but it works well in tubes as is, especially after addition of micas and oxides. You can get rid of all the drying lipsticks full of all kinds of nasties. This balm will do it all!

Rating: This is the best! Everyone loves it. It leaves your lips incredibly soft & shiny.
By:Suzanne, Quakertown, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Feb-2011
Rating: Really like this straight out of the tub. I plan to mix with a bit of beeswax to thicken it up for the tubes, but don't want to mess with it too much. It's wonderful.
Rating: I just tried this last night for the very first time and I mixed it with the butterscotch flavor and it was SUPER easy to make. I gave some to my friends at work today and NOBODY believes that this is something I made at home myself. Every comments that it feels like an expensive spa bought lip balm with an incredible scent. Will get some more to sell next time!!!!
Rating: I used it in equal parts with Shea Butter (also from NDA...where else?!) + EOs - what a lovely combo! It worked well to store in a small lip balm pot/tin.
Wish I'd tried it sooner what with all those years of using petroleum jelly.......never again!
By:Radhika, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: O...M...G! This lip balm is da BOMB! lol! Is a little soft for tubes but just add 2g of white beeswax pellets/50g base and it's perfect! The beeswax doesn't make much of a difference to the already-perfect formula- it just stiffens it up a bit. Thanx, NDA!....again.

Rating: I just made some lip balms with some EO in little tins... excellent.
By:Stephanie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Can you say, heavenly??? I love this balm, it is not waxy feeling, is a wonderful moisturizer on your lips. I cannot believe the quanity of how many tubes one can make with the 2.2 lbs. I used the lip balm flavor that NDA sells and it takes it remarkably well. Very easy to work and would not hesitate to purchase another 2.2 lbs when I need it.

Rating: We got our product but we dont really have any idea of what to do with it.. Do we melt it? and what oils would we add to it?? EO? FO? We love all the others products we have got through ND and cant wait to get our lip balms made!! If anyone could help that would be great!!
By:Lori, Kingston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Great base, love it, very easy, makes me feel a bit guilty because its so easy to use!
By:Betsy, Brockville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very nice, but where do I get the lip stick holders?
By:Kevina, San Jose, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Nov-2009
Rating: I just received a lip balm made with this base and it is by far the best lip balm I've ever tried. And coming from a true lip balm junkie that's saying something! If you want to really WOW your customers or you simply want to make lip balm for yourself this is the one to go with. It glides on very smooth and lasts for hours, even through eating and drinking, yet it doesn't feel heavy or greasy like many I've tried.
By:Crystal, Olympia, Washington

Rating: I've had some remaining tubs of the lip balm around the house after a year, and it's still good.
Rating: I really like using this product. It goes on very smoothly, softens for a long time, and is not sticky or gooey.
What I am struggling with is finding a balance between adding enough flavor without making it too soft. I also haven't found a good container for it in the price range I was looking for from ND. I bought some from another bottle supplier, but when you consider the cost of shipping it is much easier for me to get everything from ND. I tried a couple of boston glass jars but with them bowing up on the bottom and the mouth of the jar coming in a bit the tiny ones weren't the right fit.

Rating: excellent base with ease of use. perfect for tins and pots. love this stuff and will be a returning customer..
By:Glen, Brampton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Good all purpose base. Best for stick-type lip balm tubes, its a bit too hard for tins and pots. It benefits greatly from a sweetner and flavor.
By:Kristen, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I was wanting a more natural lip balm for my customers, I think I finally found it!
I used zinc oxide in this base to make a sun protecting lip balm which first was really mushy. Once I let the tube sit overnight though, it was PERFECTLY SOLID in the morning!!!!
I love this base because it is not as soft, it holds up firmer than most bases!
What a GREAT product NDA!
By:Lisa, Oakdale, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jul-2007
Rating: First experience ever with lip balm was with this product. Five starts for ease of use, quality of base. Impressed!

By:Kristin, Ramona, California

Rating: Thank you for such a great product!! My customers love it! They rave all the time about how it feels and how long it lasts!! Thank you!
Rating: The BEST lip balm! Very hydrating, imparts a subtle sheen, & when wearing it, it makes lips feel incredibly smooth/slippery (not even the least bit sticky!). I'm pleased to say my customers are just as thrilled with the product as I am! Works beautifully with the Tangerine 5-Fold essential oil.
By:Shannon, Ithaca, New York

Rating: There is a lot of ease to the use of this product, better than any base I have tried before. I use is as a natural product or zip it up with flavours and scents, my customers love the chocolate covered strawberry I developed! Kids love the cotton candy and bubblegum ones. Good going ND, love your products.
By:Heather, Hastings, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Wonderful. This is nice and firm, so it's OK to carry in a purse, yet easy to apply.
By:Christine, Ada, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Feb-2007
Rating: This is a wonderful product. We are very happy, and so are our customers. With fragrance oe unscented it is a winner!
By:Tamerie, Mount Vernon, Washington

Rating: Fantastic, great base wonderful feel and doesn't wear off in a hurry! Great with colour and flavour.
By:Colette, Alliston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is an excellent lip balm base. It moisturizes the lips better than any other big name lip balms, which is great for the winter time. The texture/consistency is probably thicker and softer than other lip balms; it feels like a cross between a cream and a lip balm. There is no scent, but it works great with fragrance oils (and maybe eos, but have not tried it yet). I added just a little bit of mango fragrance oil, and some pink mica to the base. It's a really luxurious product! Thank you for offering consistently quality, premium products, New Directions!!
By:Tily, Palo Alto, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2006
Rating: My daughter is the lip balm maker in our house and she loves working with this base. It is thick so works well in filling the tub like balm containers. She adds a light flavor, some mica colorant in some, and some she leaves the natural color, and essential oils such as peppermint for that soothing feel. So easy to use and fun to try new creations! If you have a tween or teen who wants to get started in making product this is a great place to start!
By:Joely, Topeka, Kansas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Nov-2006
Rating: We love the smooth soft feeling this lip balm gives our lips. Good choice of ingredients all we have to add is our special essential oil blend and its ready to go.
Rating: I love the feel of this base. My customers are pleased! Thumbs up!
By:Cara, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This base is a real easy way to make a lip balm. You can add your own touch or just use as is.
