Chemistry 101

Ever wondered what to do with your empty lip-gloss containers? Try the green thing (if it’s good enough for Al Gore, it’s good enough for us)! Recycle…
Here’s how to make your very own flavored lip-gloss…

Materials Needed:
Powdered Cocoa (or Juice) Mix
Petroleum Jelly
Small Container

Instructions: Put desired amount of petroleum jelly into a small glass bowl. Put it in a microwave for 30 seconds; take it out and stir. Continue doing this until the Vaseline is melted. Add the desired amount of cocoa powder (experiment!) and stir. Microwave for 30 more seconds and stir. Set it aside to cool.
Once it is cool enough to handle, spoon it into a small container (recycle old makeup containers or 35mm film containers, or look in stores that carry beads, crafts, or fishing tackle). Set it aside until the petroleum jelly gets firm, and then it is ready to use!
You can also use this recipe to make fruit lip-gloss by using powdered juice mix instead of cocoa.


After all, isn’t doing it yourself so much more satisfying?
