1. Get the goods...

* Microwave-safe bowl

* Nontoxic crayons

* Spoon

* Empty containers

2. Microwave 1 teaspoon of coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl for about a minute, or until it is completely melted.

If you want the color be to be more sheer, add a tad more oil. If you like your lipstick to be more pigmented, use less.

3. Unwrap a crayon and break it into small pieces.

4. Add the crayon pieces to the hot oil and stir with a plastic spoon until they are completely melted.

If it's a bit chunky, put the mixture back in the microwave for about 30 seconds.

5. Pour the hot crayon mixture into a clean container. These $7.99 cosmetics jars at Amazon are literally made for this kinda thing.

Let it cool for about 5 minutes.
