  1. Unwrap the crayon

    Remove the wrapper from a non-toxic crayon. If you wish to create a combination color, unwrap two or more crayons, and use a half or a third of each color to equal one crayon.

  2. Add the crayon to a double boiler

    Fill the bottom pot of a double boiler about halfway with water, and place it on the stove over medium heat. Place the top pot over it, and add the crayon to melt. If you don't have a double boiler, set a stainless steel bowl over a regular pot.

  3. Add in the coconut oil

    Stir between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil into the melting crayon. If you want the lipstick to be sheer, use about a 1/2 teaspoon, but if you want it to be more matte, use 1/4 teaspoon. Continue stirring until the crayon is fully melted and the mixture is smooth.

  4. Pour the mixture into a container

    Pour the mixture into a small container, such as a round lip balm container. Allow the mixture to cool completely and solidify before applying it to your lips.
