Okay so I just want to tell you how much I love "Make It Monday!" Why? Well because I like to piddle around and try to "make" things and while sometimes it's a nothing more than a failed attempt at me trying to be a little Martha, sometimes it actually works and because of that somedays, I feel like I should wear a cape and fight crime as "the crafty chick". I know I am easily amused...but as I drum my finger together and smile my devilish grin I say to myself "I love when a plan comes together..." And that brings me to today's "Make It Monday!" I got way off track there....

To make the lip balm I used 
1/2 cup grated beeswax
1 tsp honey
3 vitamin E capsules
2 tb cocnut oil

Melt all ingredients together in a double boiler on low.

Once melted pour into your jars. 
(I had enough to make 11.)

(I used bead making jars from Michaels. I paid $2.50 for 12. These are regular $4.99 but I used my handy dandy 50% off coupon!)

This is the easiest lip balm ever!!!

You could add more to it but I just left it plain jane.

And woo-lah here is the finished product!

I used local honey and beeswax which you can usually get at your farmers market. 

This is also a great little gift!

  6. did you mean 3 vitamin E capsules?

  7. Hi Patt!
    Yes I used 3 vitamin E capsules....fixed it thanks!

  8. Thanks girls! Let me know if you try it! Like I said this is a really basic recipe that you can change and add different things. I probably will add olive oil next time or sweet almond oil.

  9. Hey! I will link this up in the next Frugalista Friday meme/hop if that's OK. :) I'll try not to forget. LOL!

  10. Love this! I'm going to make these for my sisters! I found you on The Frugal Girls craft link up (I submitted my Alice Tutu).

  11. Waaaayyyyy tooooo hard! I think I may have to remelt and add some olive oil

  12. Question: Tried this but can't seem to get the honey to melt with the beeswax. They both melt but honey stays in a layer on the bottom. Suggestions?
