What you'll need:
1 teaspoon beeswax pastilles
1 teaspoon Shea butter or Cocoa Butter
1 teaspoon coconut oil
For Red Hues: 1/8 teaspoon of beet root powder or 1 drop of natural red food coloring with no chemical additives.
For Brown/Tan Hues: 1/4 teaspoon (or more for color) of organic cocoa powder, a tiny pinch of cinnamon or turmeric.
Melt the beeswax, shea butter/cocoa butter and coconut oil in a glass jar without a lid in a small pot of simmering (not boiling) water. It should melt quickly because so little of each ingredient is used.
When melted, remove from heat and add any optional ingredients like color or scent.
Once all ingredients are mixed well but still liquid, use a dropper to pour into the lip chap container.
Fill just below the top as it will expand slightly as it cools.
Leave to cool for at least half an hour. Store in a cool place (under 80 degrees) or it will soften.
You can use old lipstick to add color!
Wind lipstick all the way up and cut off the bullet with a butter knife.
Place the bullets in a small glass bowl or dish and pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds.
Repeat until the lipsticks are pliable (but not melted), then mix them together with a knife and add to oil.
