Extra virgin olive oil is a good moisturizer for a case of dry lips; who does not have olive oil in its kitchen?!
Honey is an excellent choice as a treatment for a bad case of chapped and cracked lips because it is antiseptic. Aloe vera is an amazing healing plant.
Natural Emulsifier – 10 %
1 teaspoon Beeswax pellets
Oil phase – 80 %
½ teaspoon of liquid honey
6 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of shea butter
1 capsule of vitamin e or wheat germ oil (optional)
Water Phase: 10 %
1 teaspoon of Aloe vera juice or gel
5 drops of Roman Chamomile essential oil (optional)
or for a vanilla taste and scent 10 drops of vanilla essential oil (10 fold)
Melt beeswax, oils, and honey in a double boiler of very low heat. Once melted, add the aloe vera.. Blend well with a whip. Take it off the heat and start whipping until the liquid becomes frosty and the honey and aloe vera well blended. Add the essential oils if you wish. This Vaseline will solidify quickly so pour it in a container as soon as the mixture is well blended and still warm. You can re-melt it if necessary.
