Coconut Oil Lip Balm

Our birthday crafty activity this year was making homemade Coconut Oil Lip Balm!  Here we go...

DIY Coconut Oil Lip Balm
Adapted from Intructables.com
  • containers for lip balm - we bought cheap lip balm at the Dollar Tree and emptied and cleaned them for refilling.
  • glass measuring cup
  • small grater
  • yellow beeswax
  • coconut oil
  • vitamin E oil
  • measuring spoons
  • pan for water bath for melting
  • glass ramekin
  • 2 parts coconut oil
  • 1 part beeswax
  • a few drops of vitamin E

Grate the beeswax then measure and add wax, coconut oil, and vitamin E to a glass ramekin.

Set the ramekin into a shallow pan of boiling water and stir to melt.

Once melted, pour into your container and let set up  (speed the setting up by placing into the fridge).
