Perfect Lip Balm

The last week or so has been so dry where we live. Our kids have learned a lot about static electricity this week ;-) and how chapped our cheeks and lips get in this weather. We quickly used up our stash of lip balm, so I made some more last night.



It is a very simple recipe with only three ingredients:

Coconut Oil: Is a natural saturated fat, rich in antioxidants. It helps soothe skin irritations and heal chapped skin, and gives mild protection from UV rays.

Sweet Almond Oil: A mild hypoallergenic oil, rich in vitamin E, is great for sensitive skin. It has a natural UV protection as well.

Beeswax: The wax acts as a cap which helps seal the moisture on your lips. In addition, it is rich in vitamin A which improves skin hydration and promotes generation of new cells.



Perfect lip balm:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 tbsp sweet almond oil

  • ½ tbsp grated packed beeswax

Optional: 4 drops essential oils (I used 2 drops lavender, 1 drop eucalyptus, 1 drop geranium. It smells wonderful)

Melt oils in a double boiler.

Remove from heat and add essential oils.

Pour into containers and allow to cool and harden before moving them.



Enjoy!
