Homemade Lip Balm

This lip balm recipe is easy to make and pretty versatile. You can try different flavoring oils to suite your taste.

1/4 vegetable or nut oil (Example: Almond oil)
1/4 ounce beeswax
1 teaspoon honey or glycerin
1/2 to 1 teaspoon natural flavoring oil (Example:
Peppermint or Lemon oil)

Melt beeswax in a double boiler. Remove from heat and whip with an electric beater until creamy. Combine other ingredients and whip until thoroughly mixed. Store in an airtight jar.

Here is a remedy for chapped lips:

Exfoliate your lips by using an old toothbrush and a
menthol based lip balm. Apply lip balm first, then
brush gently with the toothbrush.
