I am not sure if this is more for my hubs or for me, but either way we fight with cracked, sore, dry lips all winter, being inside and out all the time. This is just a super easy recipe with some natural ingredients that you may even have on hand!
3 TBSP Bees Wax
3 TBSP Coconut Oil
1 TBSP Honey
1/2 tsp flavoring (I used vanilla extract)
5 small lip balm containers (I found mine at Michael's Craft Store)
In a microwave safe dish, melt the beeswax and coconut oil for 2 minutes. Be careful, it will be hot!
Mix in the TBSP of honey, stirring until combined. Then add in the flavoring/essential oil. Melt in the microwave for 15 seconds.
Pour the mixture into your containers and allow to cool. If it looks like your emulsion is settling out, mix it up again and put in the fridge for fast cooling. The recipe made 5 jars!
