Looks pretty awesome for homemade, doesn´t it?
The recipe is super simple.
You need 30 % beeswax (which you can buy in pellets or, if you´ve got honeybees, harvest from your own tribes :)), and
70 % oil. I took olive oil, because I had it and it was suggested in the recipe, but I also made another version with linseed oil, and I imagine the almond oil we used for our handbalm to work even better.
You melt it both until you´ve got a homogeneus, golden liquid, and then pour it into the sticks.
I got them on amazon and they are 15 cents, each. I also still had the little crucibles left, I think their intended use is to store nail glitter in them, but I always thought I could find some sensible use for them. So, when I still had some of the oil-beeswax mixture left, I poured it into those.
As for the pouring, I still need to look for a method not to make such a mess, but over all, it worked just fine - you can wipe the excess off with a paper towel.
And that´s basically it - the secret to super cool homemade beeswax lipbalm.
The labels are what gives them this extra touch, I think - I loved labelling them. I used picmonkey for it.
I gave most of them away, to friends, but Tim actually sold some at work, along with my homemade handbalm and that made me kind of proud :)
Music for the day:
This is a nice one :)
