Hey everyone! I’ve driven myself crazy trying to figure this out and I think I’ve made it more complicated than it needs to be. It’s my first time making lip balm…I have the Lip Solutions and some flavor oils from MMS to try. The % rate for most of the flavor oils is 2-4%….I’m so comfortable working with weight (oz) in recipes from making soap all these years…but the MMS website discusses everything in grams. Am I able to do the flavor oils at 2-4% of the total weight of Lip Solutions I’m using? So measure it out in oz and not grams? Why am I so confused? 🤪🫠. SOS please send help!! Lol

You can certainly measure ounces of your lip balm base and use your flavoring by oz weight if you have the capability of weighing such tiny increments of ounces. I always found it much easier to use grams when dealing with lip balm unless you are making several ounces of lip balm. If you have trouble with conversions this is a great little free program, I know it has a windows version not sure about mac. Convert for Windows

I always used ounces for making soap but did use grams when making lip balms myself, unless I was making large batches of my lip butter in .25 oz jars.
