Burt's Bees Lip Balm

This recipe uses beeswax which is the most important ingredient in this recipe because it's a natural emulsifier and will also hold the solid shape of a lip balm. Beeswax also forms a natural barrier to prevent chapped lips and heal them too.

Organic coconut oil, raw liquid honey, and sunflower seed oil are the other ingredients used in this recipe. Coconut oil works as a deep hydrating agent, preventing against dryness and chapped lips. Raw liquid honey is an anti-septic as well as a cleanser, so if you have any cold sores or blemishes, it will eliminate them.
