Seriously folks. This is my jam.
Fifteen minute project = yield x 50.
Here's the recipe to my best ever "Mistletoe Lip Balm":
Makes approx. 50 chapsticks.
50 empty Chapstick Tubes (Amazon Prime)
Double boiler situation
Plastic Syringe (10ml preferred)
7.5 TBS Shea Butter (Amazon Prime)
6 TBS Beeswax (Amazon Prime)
5 TBS Coconut Oil (Amazon Prime)
20 drops Vitamin E Oil (Trader Joes)
20+ drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Anywhere)
20+ drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Anywhere)
(Add any essential oils your like to your desired level of smell/flavor.)
Melt together in a double boiler over medium heat. Stir constantly. Leave on low heat as you fill the tubes.
De-cap chapstick tubes and line them up. Each one holds approx. 5ml.
Fill syringe from the double boiler. Slowly fill tubes. Let harden. Re-cap.
Wrap with a piece of washi tape if desired. Package if you're feeling fancy.
Anybody want to make a round with me? I'm obsessed!
