HOMEGROWN Honey and Essential oil infused Salve and Lip Balm
Beeswax Lip Balm:
1 teaspoons grated beeswax
2 teaspoons organic shea butter
1/2 teaspoon Almond Oil
1-2 drops citrus essential oil
1 teaspoon honey
Melt everything together with the beeswax in a microwave-safe bowl (except for the essential oil and honey). If you don’t want to use the microwave, you can also place the ingredients in a little custard cup inside a pot of water on the stove; heat gently to melt. Remove from heat and stir in the essential oil and honey. Transfer to a small container. (This even tastes good.)
You can make a healing salve with different essential oils, depending on what you need, such as tea tree oil (good for cuts and burns).
