Time for a little TLC ladies! All this partying can leave a girl's lips parched! Follow this guide to LUSCIOUS lips and you will say goodbye to that winter dryness FOR GOOD!!!!!

Mix up a batch of this yummy lip balm yourself and feel what a wonderful difference it makes! Add peppermint or eucalyptus oils to heal a chapped kisser, or opt for a soothing vanilla-and-rose scented version. Either way, you'll have lip softening relief right in your pocket!

Lip Balm How-To

***Makes 4 tins, 1/2 ounce each***

1 Tablespoon beeswax pearls (also called pellets)
1 Tablespoon pure shea butter
2 Tablespoons sweet almond oil
10-15 drops essential oils

Melt beeswax, shea butter and almond oil together in the top of a double boiler or in a heat safe bowl set over a pot of simmering water; stir continuously with a whisk. Once the ingredients are liquefied, remove them from the heat. Whisk in the essential oils. Working quickly, transfer the liquid to a measuring cup or a container with a pour spout and then divide it between four 1/2 oz. lip balm tins. Let balms cool completely until solid, about 20 minutes. Store in a cool, dry place.

Variation:: Peppermint - Eucalyptus Lip Balm
Use 6 drops of peppermint essential oil and 4 drops of eucalyptus essential oil

Variation: Vanilla - Rose Lip Balm:
Use 10 drops of rose oil, also called rose otto, and 5 drops of vanilla oil, also known as vanilla absolute. Do you know what prize #34 at the UBP is?
