Getting crafty

Lately I've been experimenting with different homemade lip balm recipes... And I have found one that I love! It is so easy... And really worth it when you think about all the nasties they put in regular lip balms. So pucker up, here's the recipe!

You'll need...

2 Tablespoons Beeswax (grated)
2 Tablespoons Coconut oil 
2 teaspoons Sweet Almond oil
chunk of your favorite lipstick color (optional)
About 10 drops of essential oil (I used grapefruit, but you can use any kind)
Clean containers of some kind (I bought your typical lip balm containers at our health food store here in town)


To melt it all together grab a wide mouthed mason jar, and place it into a small pot half full of water. Start to heat the water over your stove. Grate your beeswax, measure out the oils, and take the chunk of lipstick, and put it all into the wide mouthed mason jar. (don't add the essential oil yet.) Stir it up with a metal spoon.
Once your mixture is melted well, take the jar out of the pot and add the essential oil of our choice. The more you add, the more potent your lip balm will be. :)
Carefully pour the hot liquid into the containers, don't put them into the fridge to cool, or they will develop holes in the center. Just let them hang out at room temperature until they harden. Now you're ready to hand these out to your family and friends, sell them, or just pamper yourself... :)

PS. May is coming up, and with it is a surprise! Stay tuned!
