Ten-Minute Craft: Presidential Lip Balm

With some beeswax from last summer’s farmer’s market looking for a home, I’ve been meaning to make lip balm for a while. I’ve made it before: First from a $40 Lip Balm Kit from Martha Stewart’s online shop years ago, which was just fine, although the results were not nearly so smart and artistic as represented in the catalog. (The shop closed not long after — probably because there weren’t enough suckers willing to spend $40 for $5 worth of supplies.) Then last year I made some using a recipe from an unnamed blogger I love whose recipe was slimy and gunky and had to be scooped out with paper towels and thrown away. Sad.

But I have proclaimed this Soulemama lip balm a winner. And it gave me a chance to recycle a 2008 mint container that made me laugh out loud, disturbing other travelers at Reagan National Airport. Memories…
