Surprisingly, I've not made lip balm before. It's pretty straightforward. I had a quick read of these instructions, and then didn't really follow them at all.
So mine contains that little bit of beeswax, a splash of coconut oil (again left over from soap making) and a bit of the olive oil we use for cooking. I also added some lipstick that I found lying around - a cheap one I picked up goodness knows when, that is far too dark for me, and barely stays on for five minutes.
Everything got melted and stirred together in a glass bowl over a pan of boiling water, and then I poured it into these little tins that I've had lying around for literally years, waiting for a job.
Never mind, it's not toxic, so I scraped it off, melted it down, and added it in a tiny bit at a time while it set.
I've missed making things, and am really looking forward to experimenting a bit more once we move.
