*** Another way of recycling EOS containers!! Making SOLID PERFUME!? Watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ra_I2tYlesE ***
You will need: the container, some beeswax, some olive oil, any old lipstick if you want it tinted, some flavoring, and tape.
Start off by scratching any residue of the lip balm from the container until it’s mostly clean. You can use a toothpick or warm water for this.
Then start placing some tape on the inside of the lid part forming two crosses. This way you will cover the whole surface of the lid.
Before making the lip balm I just cut little pieces of the beeswax so it’s easier to measure it later.
Now put some water in a pot and a heat proof container and heat the water until is hot but not boiling. Add two teaspoons of beeswax and 5 teaspoons of olive oil and let it melt. Did you know that I film this video three times until I got the perfect recipe? The first time I mixed equal parts of the beeswax and Vaseline but it was super dry and waxy so the second time I switch the Vaseline for the oil but it was still really dry. Finally I added a lot more oil and I got the perfect recipe, so don’t worry if your lip balm doesn’t come out perfectly the first time, just keep adjusting the recipe until you get what you want.
Once that’s melted go ahead and add some lipstick if you want it to have some color and as I don’t really like how beeswax smells I also added some lemon flavoring.
Then carefully pour the mixture into the lid and put that in the freezer. You will still have some remaining in you glass so wait until it has a creamy consistency and with the help of a knife spread it on the other half of the container as you were icing a cupcake until the grid is completely covered. Keep it in the freezer too.
5 minutes later take them out of the freezer and carefully unstick the tape from the lid to get the top part of the lip balm. It will take a little bit of time but it will eventually come off. Then slightly heat one of the parts with a candle or a lighter and when it gets shiny stick it to the other part. Probably at this point the lid won’t close so shape it with your finger to make it smoother and smaller. If you have any holes take a little bit of the leftovers and use them to cover those holes until the surface is smooth. Finally put the lid back on and that’s it!
I’m really in love this lip balm, its super smooth and moisturizing and it gives a slight color.
