I thought I had a brilliant idea and went to look up the German word for grapefruit and you’ll never guess what the German word for grapefruit is? Yup, grapefruit! How’s that for a letdown? Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll find more just as useful German words 😉.
Grapefruit, a cross between a pomelo and an orange; a sour, sometimes bitter fruit. This was all news to me (well, not the sour part) seeing as how I’ve never been much of a grapefruit fan, hence not a lot of research has been done. But, does anyone really research the history of the grapefruit, I digress. But, now that I’m such an adult, the adultiest of adults, I am slightly obsessed with them and haven’t been able to stop eating them. Can’t believe I’ve missed out on them for so long! Don’t worry, I’m making up for it now😉
Making a smorgasbord of these citrus fruits was quite tasty! And a fun perk of “my job.” 😂
Our week 23 #fakebabies are 11 inches long and just over a pound. This is when they start to pack on the pounds with some serious weight gain, doubling their weight over the next 4 weeks, all while listening to what’s going on outside the womb.
This week we’re steering off of the food train again, “All aboard the crazy train,” using one of Camp 36 Soapery recipes, Grapefruit Lip Balm. Sorry, I didn’t mean to trick you with the fresh fruit pictures.
Coconut Grapefruit Lip Balm
- Beeswax and 1 cocoa butter wafer
- 1 bottle of sweet almond oil, coconut grapefruit fragrance oil and grapefruit essential oil
- 1 lip balm tube
Place beeswax and cocoa wafer in a glass microwave safe container, preferably a measuring cup with a pour spout.
Melt these 2 ingredients together in 15 second bursts, mixing in between. It took me 2 minutes to accomplish this.
Once melted, add the oils and fragrance from the glass bottle. Stir to combine. If it hardens from the oils being cold, just pop it back in the microwave for 10 seconds.
Now, it’s time to pour the mixture into the lip balm tube.
Once it’s full, set aside to harden, with the lid off. Will take a few hours.
And look at how great it looks on your lips…. #childishantic#11
