The change of seasons causes many of us to suffer from dry or cracked lips – the solution – Nourishing Lip Balm. Lip balms are easy to create and you can make them to suit your specific needs.
Vegetable Oil such as Sweet Almond Oil or Apricot Kernal Oil. Waxes such as Beeswax. Flavours such as Vanilla, Raspberry, Strawberry, Mint or Sweet Orange.
Combine 2 Tablespoons (40ml) of your preferred Vegetable Oil, 1 heaped teaspoon (5g) of wax heated to just melted either in a metal pot or microwave. Add your prefered Flavour and mix thoroughly then pour into a Lip Balm pot or small container and leave to set before use.
Makes approximately 4 small pots.
To make a richer or even more norishing Lip Balm add 1/2 teaspoon of Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter or Mango Butter.
More Oil will make a softer Lip Balm, more Beeswax a firmer one.
