Crayola Lipz: We made lipstick out of Crayons!

Hi everyone!
 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.
