Benefits: We added honey to this recipe because it’s a humectant, which means it actually pulls moisture from the air and seals it into your skin!
It’s also very soothing, making it great for chapped lips. Shea butter is ultra hydrating, has an SPF of 6, and contains vitamins A, E, and F, which are great for your skin.
Beeswax is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and full of antioxidants, making it great for soothing cracked lips. It also creates a barrier, protecting your lips from the elements, like cold dry winter air.
Tips and Tricks: Sub coconut oil for carrier oil of choice, sub shea butter for butter of choice, and sub vanilla extract for essential oil of choice.
Level of Difficulty: Medium Yields: 1.5 oz.
