DIY Chapstick / Lip Balm

Being a huge fan of DIY cosmetics lately, I went ahead and did some chapsticks!  They don’t have any ingredients that really expire, so you can make a bunch and they stay good forever!

The amounts I used here make a bunch of tubes, about 20-25, so you can shrink the recipe down to make just a few.  (I get the empty tubes here)

Have fun, and don’t be afraid to experiment!
