Tinted Lip Balm Recipe from BOrganic

Ladies, has your favorite color of lip stick is at its last or worse the color has been discontinued. Well, if you want to extend the life of your favorite lipstick, why not take what is remaining and make it into a tinted lip balm? Does this make you jump up and say, "yes"? Then check out this project from Season 1 of BOrganic, which was demonstrated by Caitlin from OlivU.

Tinted lip balms are easy to create and an excellent way to use up those lipsticks or the lipsticks that "weren't just the right shade", So go through your make-up drawer and collect the lipsticks that you would like to use for this project. Then you will need to purchase the rest of the ingredients from your local health food store (or store that would carry body product supplies) or online source (Brambleberry, Wholesale Supplies Plus, etc.). I want to mention to you that in the listed under supplies there is fragrance. Do not purchase fragrance oils that you would use for melt and pour soaps. You want to purchase appropriate items like candy flavorings, flavored Stevias (available at places like Whole Foods but are quite expensive) or pure essential oils. Remember that citrus essential oils (lemon. lime, orange, tangerine, etc.) are photosensitive you may want to stay away from those particular oils.
