While New Years is just another day at our home and we rarely pause to acknowledge the passing of time - it is significant to notice that things are changing, stuff is happening, our world is getting bigger and our kids are growing like weeds.
For Auld Lang Syne - I do hope we meet in the New Year, that our worlds continue to grow and change, and that my heart leave 2017 even fuller than it has left it's precesessor.
Seriously folks. This is my jam.
Fifteen minute project = yield x 50.
Here's the recipe to my best ever "Mistletoe Lip Balm":
Makes approx. 50 chapsticks.
50 empty Chapstick Tubes (Amazon Prime)
Double boiler situation
Plastic Syringe (10ml preferred)
7.5 TBS Shea Butter (Amazon Prime)
6 TBS Beeswax (Amazon Prime)
5 TBS Coconut Oil (Amazon Prime)
20 drops Vitamin E Oil (Trader Joes)
20+ drops Peppermint Essential Oil (Anywhere)
20+ drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil (Anywhere)
(Add any essential oils your like to your desired level of smell/flavor.)
Melt together in a double boiler over medium heat. Stir constantly. Leave on low heat as you fill the tubes.
De-cap chapstick tubes and line them up. Each one holds approx. 5ml.
Fill syringe from the double boiler. Slowly fill tubes. Let harden. Re-cap.
Wrap with a piece of washi tape if desired. Package if you're feeling fancy.
Anybody want to make a round with me? I'm obsessed!
