I want to make lip balm by melting vaseline in the microwave because that how I heard that you could make it) and then add flavoring by using cocoa. Will it start a fire, since it is oil? I am 17 years old, and obviously don't have my own house to burn down, so my mom won't let me use the microwave for melting the vaseline. Will it be just as good if I just add cocoa or vanilla into regular vaseline? Will it sell like that here? And lets say all goes well, and I melt the vaseline, adn then sell it, will it clump up by the time it gets to the receiver? Any other easy ways to make lip balm/lip gloss?

check out craftster.org
they have recipes for making stuff like that on the bath and body board.
i have melted lip stuff in a tin because it was stuck to the sides and i wanted it to be on the bottom. i put it in the toaster oven but i watched it the whole time.
it was fun!
