Make homemade lip balm in minutes, using just two ingredients. Yes, it’s really that easy!
– Kool-Aid powder packets – Petroleum jelly
Start by adding petroleum jelly to a small microwave safe bowl. Then microwave on high for 30-45 second intervals until melted, stirring in between.
Next, add Kool-Aid powder to the melted jelly slowly while stirring, until you reach the desired color. This will also give the lip balm a tasty flavor.
I found that the tropical punch flavor was the closest to a red-pink. Then I added the lemonade flavor to get it lighter for the really soft pink shades you see.
The darkest almost purple / mauve color was using cherry and a little bit of tropical punch together.
Once the Kool-Aid is completely mixed with the melted jelly, scoop it into screw top pots and let them return to a solid state overnight.
Now, they're ready to be given as gifts or kept for yourself.
