= Basic Lip Balm:  =
4 Tbs. almond oil
1 Tbs. grated beeswax1 tsp. honey

Over very low heat, warm up the oil and beeswax until all the wax melts. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the honey. Pour into a small jar with a wide opening, and stir it occasionally until it is cool. Always keep your balm in a cool place so it doesn’t melt and separate.

With the above basic recipe, you are now able to add some oils and make the balm your own, you can add essential oils. Try 10 drops of peppermint for cooling peppermint balm. Or add 10 drops grapefruit essential oil with 5 drops lavender. Another nice one: 5 drops chamomile with 10 drops neroli oil. Or for sensitive lips, try 10 drops rose oil.

For extra help with chapped lips, you can take a Vitamin E capsule (400-IU), puncture it, and add the contents in when you add the honey.
