If you know me at all, you know that I don’t leave the house without Burt’s Bees lip balm. In fact, if I had to be sent to a deserted island, I would die happy as long as I had Burt’s. Just the other day I was thinking of some kind of invention that would allow me to easily scrape the inner walls of the tube to get the last remaining lip balm gold without using a bobby pin. A tube of Burt’s has literally been at my side or in my purse for the past…wait for it…18 years.
With that said, I am probably never buying another tube again. Tonight, I learned how to make my own and I fully intend on saving money, one tube at a time, for years to come.

This recipe made 40 tubes worth of chapstick. Here’s how I did it:
Melt 2 oz. organic beeswax in a pan on low heat.
