Extremely hot or cold weather can chap our lips. There are some really good lip balms out there in the market place... I use one that is similar to BB's, just not as expensive. Lately, I've been on the hunt for something that can be homemade, with items and ingredients I have on hand.
Here's one I think will be just as nice to make and use. ♥ Vanilla Lip Balm ♥
Ingredients: 1 tablespoon petroleum jelly
1/2 teaspoon beeswax, grated
5 drops vanilla oil (do not use vanilla flavoring!)
(you'll need to use a vanilla oil that is Body Safe* do not use oils that are for making candles...this would not be safe for your face).
In a small microwave-safe bowl, heat the petroleum jelly and beeswax for 30 seconds on high until melted. Remove from oven. Stir in the vanilla oil. Pour mixture into a small jar with lid or metal tin.
