I have a variety of crafts that I do with my wax. I am fundamentally opposed to making things harder on myself, so every time I’m in a thrift store, I buy all of the crock pots. I’ve collected myself quite a posse of crock pots.
Yes, one big one, one medium sized, and three small. Reason being, each craft has a different collection of ingredients in them.
So I have one for just plain wax for candles.
That one is the medium, as I usually have a bunch of wax when I’m doing candles.
Next, we have the beeswax wraps crock pot. This one is the big one mainly because it has a white bowl, and I can monitor the discoloration due to the pine rosin.
The small ones are for lip balm. I have a friend with a lanolin allergy, so I have one crock with lanolin lip balm, and one without. I actually prefer the non-lanolin balm.
It’s a nice easy recipe from a magazine I bought at the feed store.
Wax, grapeseed oil, vitamin E, and shea butter.
I bought a kit to help corral the mixture. It makes life a lot easier.
