Balm those Lovely Lips!

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.
