3 tsp. grated beeswax (or pellets)
3 tsp. cocoa butter (can also use shea)
2 tsp. olive oil (or other oil such as almond or coconut)
2 drops of honey
4 or 5 drops of spearamint flavored oil
1 vitamin E capsul (cut open and use liquid)
The vitamin E acts as a preservative and is optional. This made enough to fill 4 chapstick tubes. I purchased the tubes on ebay and I also purchased a pippet from ebay to fill the tubes which was much easier then trying to funnel the mixture.
There are so many different recipes on the internet (just ask google) and I am going to be trying some different ones soon. I think I wil try a wild berry next time and add a smidge of color.
If you are wanting something all natural for your lips but don't want to take the time or spend the money to make lip balm I have a very simple mixture for you:
One drop Olive oil
One dropy Almond Oil
One drop Honey
That's it! Apply to your lips before going to bed!
Remember....don't wait for you lips to get dry and chapped. Apply lip balm on a regular basis and your lips will stay moisturized and soft and supple.
If your lips are already really dry and flakey try this great lip cure:
1/2 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
Mix together all ingredients and apply to your lips and leave on overnight. In the morning you will awake to smooth, soothed lips. If you have any mixture left it should be stored in the refrigerator because of the fresh lemon juice. It's sort of like a deep conditioning treatment for your lips!
Beautiful lips are natural lips!
