DIY EOS Peppermint Lip balm Refill

Hello lovlies!
 I love EOS products! They are so soothing to the lips and super easy to carry in your purse. In my opinion, the perfect lip-balm. In this post, I'll be sharing a copycat EOS peppermint balm recipe and the secret to reusing the cute little lip balm containers!

Remove any remaining lip balm from your container. Then pop the little middle part out using a knife. Next, flip the middle section out and place in in the top part of the container so the little star design thing is facing up. Then set it aside and get ready to make the lip-balm. 

  • 2 Tbs. beeswax pellets
  • 4 Tbs. coconut oil
  • 1/2 tes. vitamin e oil
  • 1/4 tsp. or 10 drops of peppermint essential oil
Mix the beeswax, coconut oil and the vitamin e oil in a heat proof container and place it in a pan of boiling water. When these ingredients melt you can add the essential oil.

Then pour the balm into your container until the liquid covers the plastic. 

Place in the refrigerator until the balm hardens. When solid, pop the middle part out. The round EOS lip balm signature shape should appear! Then place the lip balm part in the bottom half of the container.

hello there...

Life has been pretty crazy, but I love it that way...
Just recently I started Drivers Ed. I mentioned that in one of my earlier posts.
Yesterday was my first drive with the instructor. It went really well! We practiced residential driving, and I thought I did really well, but I did run a Stop sign... My instructor was talking to me and I was focusing on what he was saying and I ran the sign! Thankfully there weren't any cars around! Man, it was awkward...
A friend, her mom and I are going to start practicing a song to sing at our choirs upcoming fundraising concert! We are thinking about singing this song it has a beautiful harmony! I'm going to try and get my brother to play his guitar with us. 
So, I mentioned a fundraising concert... Our choir is fundraising for a trip to New York this coming May! And just to torture you all, I'm going to wait and tell you what business we are about after our trip! Expect like a 7 part series, because I'm taking a camera and I'm totally pumped about going! New York is just fascinating! I cannot wait to go!!
Other than school, drivers ed and choir, Ive been preparing for an upcoming spring piano recital that I'm playing in this April. I'm doing a duet with a friend and another one with my teacher.  I've never done a duet, so I'm pretty excited!

How are you?
What have you gals been up to?
