Vanilla Honey Dry Lips Recovery Balm
This rich and soothing balm can be used year-round as it doubles as a mild anti-bacterial ointment when applied when applied to cute and scraped and helps prevent scarring. Its soothing ingredients of honey are hydrating and healing, while the vanilla ingredient has a great smell year round.
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soybean or almond base oil
1 1/2 teaspoons beeswax
5 drops vanilla essential oil
In a small saucepan over low heat or in a double boiler, warm oil, honey, and beeswax, until the wax is just melted.
Remove from heat, add the essential oil, and stir to blend. Set the pan in a shallow ice- water bath. Using a whisk or spoon, stir rapidly for 30 to 60 seconds until the honey is incorporated and the formula is like thick peanut butter. It will be a pale yellow-brown color.
Spoon the mixture into storage containers and cap. Let the mixture set for 2 hours before use.
No refrigeration is required, but for maximum freshness and taste, please use within one year.
