These will all be natural flavouriings - so no chance of "Bubblegum" etc. (unless I can manage to blend it).

(multiple choice)

Fruity is always my fav ;)
I've made orange and a sort of fruit punch one with mandarin, lemon & grapefruit eo's.
I tried Ruth's ones from "the other forum" and I loved her fruit one's but wasn't sure about Rose.
Have you decided on packaging?

I couldn't take the Rose - love the fragrance but can't stand the taste.

Definitely coconut, but I would have picked vanilla too if that had been on there!

Nothing to strong though, Iv got the balm balm rose geranium one and it is too overpowering.

I picked Mango cos it smells delicious! But sometimes I really like the neutral scents, like the cocoa butter smell - they always seem more nourishing!

Choose the fruit flavours, they're more fresh but mint also.

The Chocolate one will contain raw cocoabutter whic is dark and really chocolatey - makes the usual refined cocoa butter seem rather insipid!

When given a choice I tend to buy strawberry or orange. However, I think I would buy any of those ones, except for coffee which I don't think I would like.

Mint or coconut for me, although I like the sound of mango too and raspberry! but as someone else said not too overpowering!

Really not keen on minty - makes my lips feel all cold and tingly, which I don't like much!

Just been for a quick google and have found a natural cherry essence - I'll have to get it added to my assessment.

I like minty mostly (prefer spearmint to peppermint ;) ) but also strawberry and chocolate. I like a few different ones depending on my mood! I am a great customer ha ha can't just buy one!

Guess I'm a fruity type of gal, although I don't mind mint flavoured either.

When I want chocolate, I want chocolate! Nothing chololate flavoured or scented comes close to the real thing.

I can see your point - and the darker the better.

My Chocolate lipbalms will be real chocolate 'cos of the raw cocoa butter!

Ah but - when using natural lip balm - you will not be eating tonnes of unpronounable - ungoogleable rubbish.

Yup that is true but will stick to the fruity one less likely to eat my lips with those ones on.

I like something fruity and zesty (ohh er);) so would go orange or lemon.
I once had a lovely lip balm from The Body Shop that was kiwi flavor, that was really nice.

I chose the mint for freshness, but I would like a pineapple flavoured one.

Thankyou everyone for all the information - I ordered a set of jewellery scales at the weekend (better accuracy for small amounts) and I'll be making some samples when they arrive.
