Hello, world!
I know, I know, i just posted a lip scrub recipe, but this is lip balm, so you can do both! As I said before, this cold winter weather has been HORRENDOUS for my lips, and my family and friends know that without chapstick, I am a train wreck for the rest of the day. It's true; I have problem. Anywho, I found a crazy easy recipe for one that anyone can make, and it works really well, too! Also, it's only four ingredients! I used a bunch of little containers for mine, so that I could just stash them in pockets and purses, but you should use something like an empty Altoid's container or two for storage. Enjoy, send comments, stay fresh!

Step 1:
In a microwavable bowl, combine 1 TBS shaved beeswax, 4 TBS coconut oil, 3 TBS shea butter, (or petroleum jelly, if you're in a pinch!) and heat in microwave for 1 minute. Stir in a bit of Kool-Aid powder, about 1/4 teaspoon at a time until you reach your desired color.

Step 2:
Once you are happy with the color, use a dropper or spoon to pour the mixture into your container. Pop the container in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours, and then enjoy your smooth, silky lips!
