Today I thought I'd share a super easy & very rewarding how-to: Making Your Own Lip Balm. With all the chilly air right now it's incredibly practical and so simple you can even make it with the kids.
I'm going to do the quickie method here. I know there are more complicated ways to blend various ingredients, colors, etc., but for basic lip balm this is the way to go. So let's do this!!
- 2 oz. Lip balm base
- 1/4 tsp flavor oil
- Pyrex measuring cup
- 10 Lip balm tubes & caps
- Optional: sweetener oil*
Start by scooping the base into the Pyrex cup. It could be soft like this or more solid depending on the base - either way is ok since it'll get liquified when hot:
To make things look really nice, add some pretty labels. My newest sponsor, Wholeport, carries these cool masking tape sticker sets that are ideal for this. And FYI- they're also a totally fabulous source for other crafty goodies - including lip balm tubes.
Wasn't that easy? It literally takes minutes and is way better than just buying the boring store varieties. Even though I just made some, I totally feel like making more, which is always the sign of a good project to me;)
I'm also sharing this with my FAVE LINK PARTIES.
