I heard that i can add stevia to my lip balms to sweeten them. Does anyone else do this? How much should I add?

I have never done it myself, although I have heard of doing it, I usually use honey. Since I make them with beeswax. I have a friend that uses natural flavorings as well as stevia.

I've used both stevia and honey as sweeteners. It's not really an exact science, just start by adding a little bit, try it and then add more if you think it needs it. It also depends on what fragrances/EOs you use. Some are already sweet and won't need as much added sweetener as other scents might.

We add stevia and as said, you just have to add a little at a time and see. Sometimes it is hard to get it to dissolve. So I have recently purchased honey powder to try out.

They make stevia in a liquid form as well. I've used that in the past.
