What you need
- Juice extract (optional)
- Glass bottle
Put your Vaseline in a microwaveable bowl (any bowl that can handle the heat). Make sure to include as much or as little as you choose.
Heat Vaseline in the microwave for about 30 seconds until it melts. If you don’t have a microwave, you can put it in a bowl of very hot water if you don’t have a microwave. This will also work fine.
Time for some colors. Mix kerosene by cutting a small portion of your favorite lipstick, stirring well. That is until everything is put together well. Then heat again until the mixture is smooth.
Step 4 (optional)
About some flavors! Mix some juice or extract into your tinted balm. This all depends on how much you want the taste. There is no wrong way to do this. However, make sure that you don’t let too much of your balm turn liquid.
Pour your mixture into jars and refrigerate, if needed. This helps the mixture to solidify. Finally, use liberally as needed.
That’s it! Your homemade lip balm is ready. Do as much as you like. You can even make an extra buck or two by selling these to your friends.

Postscript: You can add coconut oil to the mix as it is a great moisturizer and has SPF4 for protection from sun damage.
