I'm working on adding a line of vegan, naturally sweetened lip balms to my shop. Because I'm going the vegan route, this means I can't use honey as a sweetener and I'd prefer to use something natural and organic, like agave nectar. I tried a recipe last night where I used agave nectar instead of honey and (because it's water based) I couldn't incorporate the agave into the mixture. Does anyone have any tips? Should I try using raw can sugar instead? And if so, how would I incorporate it without giving my lip balms a rough texture?
Thanks in advance for the help! :)
