How much stevia in lip balm?

Posted by sara-s (My Page) on

I want to make some lip balm. I know that I can use the same sorts of ingredients as I use for lotion bars, but I want to add stevia for sweetness. I have not used it before, so I don't know how much to add. (Assume 3 oz. batch of lip balm base.)

Sara, I see you use Brambleberry products. Did you check Teachsoap.com? It's Anne-Marie's companion site and has recipes on it.
I use her flavor oils straight up. I don't sweeten my lip balms at all.

I know they usually sy "to taste" but the problem is that I don't know how much to start with- a gram , a teaspoon? A starting estimate would be very helpful.
Thanks.

according to Brambleberry, you use 1%. for a 3oz batch, that's .03 ounces. I don't work in measurements, only weights. So I'd have no idea if that was even a teaspoon measureable amount. My suggestion..a small pinch.
