My name is Sarah, and I'm a chapstick addict
And you know what else? These make an easy holiday gift. We're talking 15 minutes from start to clean up. You can do this.
In a pot over medium heat fitted with a double boiler, melt a little bit of beeswax.
Edited 5/22/12: if you are having trouble with "lack of measurements", it is because I just eyeball it. The measurements depend on how many tubs you want to make, and how big the tubs are. Start with about 1/3 cup of beeswax (solid), 1/4 cup of coconut oil, and 4 tblsp of honey.
Pour in to your containers of choice.
For a harder chapstick, you'll want to go a bit heavy on the beeswax. For a softer chapstick, add more honey and a few drizzles of olive oil and/or almond oil and/or jojoba oil.
