if you haven't already guessed from the title, were making lipstick, out of your average crayola crayons! So what are crayons? Wax and non-toxic pigments, what is the average lipstick you buy at the store? castor, seed oil, fragrance, and titanium dioxide, just to name a few. Well, i think that this battle was over before it even started. I would personally rather put a crayon on my lips than risk it with chemicals and coloring. So how do you make this fabulous lipstick? Rosebud and Rosehip are going to show you how!
Step 1: Fill a sauce pot halfway with water, place a mini mason jar in the water and boil the water. When the water reaches a boil turn the heat down to a simmer.
Step 2: Put a half a teaspoon of coconut oil, and a half a teaspoon of Shea butter in the mini mason jar. (both of these ingredients are sold as a solid so they may take a minute to melt into liquid form.
Step 3: Cut about 3/4 of the crayon and remove the wrapper from the bigger section, then place the crayon into the mini mason jar.
Step 4: When the crayon is melted down to a liquid, pour the mixture into lip balm containers or bottle caps and let cool.
VIOLA! your finished.
