As the weather is getting colder and the wind is getting stronger, many of us are beginning to suffer from dry, cracked lips. Making your own healing and protecting balm is easy and the best way of making sure your lips are getting the best possible care this winter.

This recipe makes just under 160g of balm and combines some of our favourite ingredients to help sooth, heal and protect.

Into a small saucepan, weigh out:

40g Virgin Organic Coconut oil – To moisturise and help prevent lips from drying out.

30g Organic Unrefined Shea Butter – Deeply penetrating to moisturise, while at the same time,    providing protection against dryness from both windburn and the sun. 

25g Beeswax – Works to lock in moisture, protect and repair rough dry skin.

20g Coco Butter – An excellent moisturiser and skin protector against dryness and damage.

15g Hemp oil – Filled with nutrients that help tackle dryness, inflammation and oxidative damage.

15g Calendula Infused oil – Healing and soothing for dry, cracked skin.

10g Jojoba Oil – Another moisturising, skin protecting ingredient that is very similar to the  body’s own natural oil.

2g Natural Vitamin E – Hydrating, rejuvenating and restoring. 

Allow to cool and add:

20 drops Peppermint essential oil – Soothing, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory.

10 Drops German Blue Chamomile essential oil – Calming, soothing, softening, anti-inflammatory and hydrating.

Place saucepan on a low heat and gently warm until all solid ingredients have melted. Then pour into balm pots or lip twists and allow to set.
