And you know what else? These make an easy holiday gift. We’re talking 15 minutes from start to clean-up. You can do this.
Homemade chapstick is easier than you think, and makes great gifts!
- 1/4 cup cosmetics grades beeswax
- 2 tbsp shea butter
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 2 tbsp sweet almond oil
Pour 2 cups of water in a medium pot, and fit with a double boiler. Place over medium heat on the stove.
If you want to "flavor" this, you have two options. You can add essential oils to the double boiler when everything is melted, or you can add a few drops of essential oil in to your container. If adding them in the containers, you'll want to stir with a toothpick right after you've incorporated the melted mixture.
Homemade Chapstick has been a game changer for me, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
