DIY Copycat Medicated Blistex





I absolutely love this recipe because it is super easy and very similar to the real thing.  



Ingredients:

3/4 teaspoon (approx. 72 drops) Wintergreen Essential Oils (Where to get)*
1/2 teaspoon (approx. 50 drops) Camphor (Where to get)
1 1/2 oz (3 tablespoons) Coconut Oil (Where to get)
1 oz (2 tablespoons) Cocoa Butter (Where to get)
1 oz (2 tablespoons) Beeswax (Where to get)
3 drops Vitamin E Oil (Where to get)
20 Lip Balm Containers (Where to get)
Medicine Syringe (optional) (Where to get)
*The "where to buy"  links provide you with the information on the products I use to make this lotion and many other DIY home & body products.


Melt the Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, and Vitamin E Oil in a double boiler. 


Once melted, add wintergreen oil and camphor

{If you’re not a big fan of the wintergreen scent, you can easily use another scent. Or, if you don’t want to use as much wintergreen and camphor oil as I did, just use less drops of both}

Using the syringe fill the chapstick tubes. 



Once the chapstick hardens, add a few more drops of your melted mixture to the top of the chapsticks – this will even off the tops and make them look nice and finished!

Clean Up
Once you’ve finished filling your chapsticks, place the tip of your syringe in the lukewarm water in the hot water from the double boiler. 

Swirl around for a few seconds and then empty into a paper towel. Do this a few times until your syringe is clean. 


Before you wash your glass container and spoon, wipe them down with a paper towel.
