So, another test from the frugal Pinterest test table. I already had coconut oil and petroleum jelly, so the only investment was beeswax. I found this little gem at Cox Honey for $1.55. I only used a smidgen, so it was worth the investment!
I love, love lip balm, and my little ones love to use it too. I hate buying them some, because usually it gets ruined quickly, and/or the cheap stuff tastes so bad! I bought a package of them for my little ones for Christmas, and I couldn’t believe how nasty they were!
This is quick and simple. It only requires three ingredients:
4 Tbsp. coconut oil
4 Tbsp. petroleum jelly
1 Tbsp. beeswax
Finely grate or chop beeswax.
Put in fridge for 2 hours to solidify, then take out and use as needed. It does not need to be refrigerated after the first time to set it.
I found this was smooth and without any nasty flavors. It actually doesn’t have any flavor at all that I could taste. It had no unpleasant smell, and felt creamy and nice!
I will be using this for the next little while. Maybe if I get creative, I will try adding Kool-Aid next time. We will see. You can add color by adding a little blush or old lipstick to the mixture. I liked clear, plus then I don’t worry about the little ones staining something with their new lip balm!! 🙂
