Homemade Chapstick

This my favorite recipe for chapstick and is so easy to make.

Homemade Chapstick recipe

2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
2 Tablespoons Shea Butter
2 Tablespoons Beeswax

Melt the beeswax then add the other ingredients until all melted. Using a large syringe or turkey baster, squirt the melted liquid into each tube. Leave a little at the end for topping up because they tend to settle a little while cooling.

When we made it today we filled 22 tubes with the above recipe. LOVE IT!!

You need a couple of dozen chapstick tubes or containers of some variety. I bought these chapstick tubes from ebay for $15.99 with free postage for 50 tubes in those funky colours.

It feels so nice on your lips!

That sounds so easy. We don't have the tubes, but I can find some type of container that could hold it.

I would love to do this.

I will look into finding some tubes. I wonder if you could use little canisters?
