At this time of the year, my lips crack like crazy. It’s very painful, and certainly not beautiful. After buying some fancy homemade balm, and getting them eaten by my kids, I decided to make it myself a try. I’ve looked around on the internet for recipes and made up my own based on those and on what I had on hand.
What you will need:
1½oz of beewax, grated
10z of coconut oil
1 Tsp of Lanolin
1 Tsp of sweet almond oil
10 drops of peppermint oil
A sauce pan
A glass/metal cup
Wooden or metal stick
2 oz jar
What you need to do:
1. Put all ingrediants into glass cup except the essential oil. Put water in sauce pan and put the cup in them, making you a bain-marie.
2.Still with the stick until everything looks homogenus.
3.Remove from heat and stir in your essential oil.
4.Pour into jar.
5.Wait a little for it to harden
6. Enjoy the relief!
It’s very easy to make and I’m happy that I tried. Please tell me if you try this recipe!
