It’s November and, from what I’ve been told, snowing in Boston. I was ready for summer to be over but I’m definitely not ready to say goodbye to fall. I was lucky to wrap up October with the treat of having ShareABitOfLove out in Boston last week, but she left for home with us both having a laundry list of incomplete crafts that just simply couldn’t be fit in while sharing the loft with boys. Luckily, I have the treat of sandwiching my conference next week with two weekends at home. TWO! So of course, this weekend brought some tipsy Saturday night projects.
While she was in Boston, we made a pretty flimsy attempt at lip balm, but it turned out well enough for us to invest in the proper inventory to make it for real. The result? Pretty much a copycat of Burt’s Bee’s Classic Lip Balm. I’m feeling pretty psyched about the result.
We melted down a concoction of the following in a double boiler (and by double boiler I mean a rigged up bowl over a pot with water):
- 1oz Organic Beeswax (found here on Amazon)
- 3 Tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil
- 1/2 Tsp Vitamin E Oil
- 25-40 Drops Peppermint essential oil (depending on your personal preference)
