When your lips are dry, you lick them, which in turn, make them more dry and chapped, so you lick them more. The best way to fight this vicious circle is: 1st - keep hydrated (drink lots of water) and 2nd - to keep handy and use lip balm. My favorite lip balm is “Bert’s bees” brand. I have this roll, but that is it, and I keep miss placing it. I would like to buy more, but it is a tad on the expensive side. I found this on Pintrest: http://www.brokeandhealthy.com/diy-burts-bees-style-lip-balm-8%C2%A2-per-tube. Since I had most of the ingredients on hand, and few of the empty tubes, I decided to give it a try. I did some variations from her recipe, according to what I had on hand. So here we go.
Supplies: 2 oz (56 g) bees wax ($1.79/ounce, not shown) 3 oz (84 g) coconut oil ($0.29/fluid ounce) ½ oz (24 g)Vitamin E oil ($2.14/ounce) ½ oz (24) Almond oil ($0.50/ounce) 30-40 Lip Balm tubes (0.15 fluid oz. each, empty and clean, I had 8) Microwave safe glass container Spoon Digital scale Essential oils (I used Spearmint for it flavor and Rosemary for its antibacterial properties)
