Here are the 6 easy steps to making bacon-flavoured lip balm:
Step 1: Scrape about two teaspoons of wax shavings with the knife and place them in the plastic bag.
Step 2: Next add about one and a halve teaspoons of Vaseline to the bag.
Step 3: Place the bag in a cup or tin full of boiling water (from the kettle) and wait for it to melt.
Step 4: When it has melted cut the corner of the bag and pour it into the old plastic container. You must keep the container over the hot water to stop it hardening.
Step 5: Select some nice fatty bacon and cut off all of the fat. Put the bacon fat in a small frying pan with a small piece of bacon ‘meat’ in to the pan as well. Now heat the bacon with a little oil until it is browned, then pour the oil into your container with the lip balm base in it.
Step 6: Now pour the liquid lip balm in to your container, (we used an old lip balm stick, or you could use a old Vaseline tin). You have to wait around five minutes for in to cool down, but after that the balm is safe to use.
And now you have BACON lip balm! Rub it on your lips and you’ll get the delicious bacon-flavour tantalizing your every sense!
