Peppermint Chapstick

I know it’s been a while since I last posted but I’ve been in a rut with ideas. But today isn’t about food. I’ve been wanting to make homemade chapstick for a couple months now and I’m finally doing it (since ive finally finished my 2 chapsticks so I now have containers for them).

Make 3 EOS chapstick containers or 2 small glass containers.

Ingredients: 1 Tbsp coconut oil, 1 Tbsp beeswax, 1 tsp vitamin E oil, and a few drops peppermint oil (or whatever essence oil you prefer)

First, untwist the chapstick containers. Pop out the part that the chapstick is connected too. For a better understanding go to this youtube video and start at 1:23  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3aGGwhM0RQ

(please use this video as a helper with making chapstick)

Or you can use a small container for the chapstick and use your finger to apply to your lips.

In a microwave safe container, melt together the coconut oil and beeswax. Once both are melted add the vitamine E oil and peppermint oil.

Twist the top of the chapstick onto the section that you popped out. Pour the oil mix into the top of the chapstick until it just covers the “grates”. Place into the fridge and let cool and harden.
