SWEET Lip Balm

Posted on October 2, 2011. Filed under: SWEET Projects |

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon petroleum jelly
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 drop flavoring*

*Flavoring:

Add several tablespoons of pre-sweetened Kool-Aid (in the flavor or your choice)  to one cup of hot water to make a very thick concentrate

Instructions:

Add all ingredients to a Ziploc bag, seal and mix by hand.

When mixed, cut a small corner from the bag.

Squeeze the mixture into a lip balm container and let it sit for a few hours.

WARNING:  Since petroleum jelly melts just above body temperature, containers will leak when in your pocket unless the seal is good.
