Welcome to Blast From The Past Saturday. Every Saturday I will be posting a previously published post, in order to take my weekends off.

The ingredients in this balm are simple and wonderful for your lips. It has honey, which is a natural humectant (attracts moisture). It not only moisturizes your lips, but it also helps remove the dead skin. Somewhere along the way I read that if you put straight honey on your dry, chapped lips at night, all of the dead skin will be gone by morning. It also has coconut oil a natural emollient, and beeswax which has natural fatty acids and is a thickener. Very simple and great for your lips, and tastes good enough to eat.
Lip Balm Recipe
1 1/2 tsp coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp raw unfiltered honey
1/4 oz beeswax
Melt all ingredients together over low heat in a small saucepan. Once melted, remove from heat immediately. Fill a large bowl with ice and place saucepan in the ice. Whisk the balm in the pan until it thickens. Then use a spatula to put it into a small container for lip balm.
Containers can be found at a natural foods store, like a whole foods. You can also find them online.
Have a great week.
