Aromatherapy Treatments for Chopped Lips

Aromatherapy Lip Balm for Chapped Lips

This deliciously flavored lip balm takes only a few minutes to make. It will moisturize, soften and protect your lips beautifully.

1 teaspoon beeswax granules (or grated beeswax if using a block)
3 teaspoons jojoba
1 teaspoon castor oil
½ teaspoon runny honey
1 drop rose essential oil

Put the beeswax, jojoba, castor oil and honey in a heatproof basin over a pan of simmering water. Stir continuously until the beeswax has completely dissolved. Remove from the heat, add the essential oil and stir thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a little glass pot with a tight-Fitting lid.

As these products do not contain water, they have a shelf-life of three to four months. However, it's important to check regularly for signs of mould. They freeze well if stored in plastic containers and you may wish to save time by making a double quantity for long term use.
