Nourishing Lip Balm

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.

Ingredients:

Vegetable Oil such as Sweet Almond Oil orĀ Apricot Kernal Oil. Waxes such as Beeswax. Flavours such as Vanilla, Raspberry, Strawberry, Mint or Sweet Orange.

Method:

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.
