Yummy vaseline based lip balm
This is my first how to... so go gentle on me, please! :)

Also, note that vaseline burns if it touches you after the microwave melting! This is based on several how-to's I've seen on here, but the added sugar makes a difference to balancing out the synthetic flavourings.

  • Step 1

    Clean your containers - I washed mine with washing up liquid, and then rinsed them in boiling water.

  • Step 2

    Find a microwavable bowl and scoop out enough vaseline to fill your lip balm containers.

    Microwave your vaseline until it's almost liquid. I did mine in 30 second bursts, taking it out and stirring each time.

  • Step 3

    When your vaseline is liquid add in sugar, food colour, strawberry flavouring and vanilla extract.

    Then stir and microwave again for 30 seconds.

  • Step 4

    Stir your mix again, and poor (carefully) into your containers.

    Place in the fridge until completely set and you're ready to go.
