Honey and Beeswax Lip Balm Blast From The Past Saturday

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

===Originally posted May 9, 2012===

I have been making this lip balm since January.  I absolutely love this stuff.  I have them all over my house, and I have given them to everyone in the office, even the guys.  My son uses it, my husband and daughter uses it.  My friend that I share an office love the stuff and keeps trying to get me to sell it.  I am just happy giving it away.

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.
