    How to Make Vanilla Infused Jojoba

    by Andrea Butje on April 10, 2011

    Making your own vanilla infused jojoba is easy!

    Add about a half of an ounce of vanilla oleoresin (1 tablespoon) to a gallon of jojoba (3.75 litres). After about two weeks, your jojoba will be infused with the rich aroma of the vanilla.

I just don't get it. To me, chapstick feels like rubbing a warm candle on my mouth and gloss feels like wearing a thin layer of glue. […]
