Adding Tint to Lip Balm: How to Make an Alkanet Infusion

How to Make an Alkanet Infusion

You will need:

1/4 cup carrier oil (olive, sweet almond, etc)

1 Tablespoon Alkanet Root


Combine ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Leave for a few days to infuse, or warm gently in hot water for an hour or two until the oil takes on the desired color. Use the infused oil in your Lip Balm recipe to add a pretty sheer tint! The infused oil can also be used for soap making and other cosmetic recipes.
