Had I known how easy homemade chapstick was to make, we would have made it a very long time ago. Honestly, I don’t think I realized one could make their own chapstick. Anna, though is very curious about all natural things like lotions, soaps, chapsticks and had a list of things she wanted posted on the refrigerator for a long time. Well, Christmas came and so did the items on her list.
She got busy organizing the items and reading and re-reading recipes she found online. Checking and double checking ingredients.
Turns out making chapstick is fun! She did a great job making grapefruit and sweet orange flavors. They are remarkably soothing.
We are now the proud owners of a bunch of chapsticks waiting for giveaways or use.
Using Wellness Mama’s recipe Anna made 32 chapsticks.
- Melt all of the ingredients in a mason jar placed in a pan of water.
2. When it’s all melted together use a dropper or funnel to fill the tubes.
3. I forgot to get a picture of the chapsticks settling….after pouring the melted ingredients into the tubes they need to sit for 24 hours before moving.
4. Ready for labeling!
5. All finished.
