It is the second show this month where I will be outside in the sun all day. The hardest part is drinking enough water when it is warm. If I do not the sun and the dehydration make my lips brittle. I started making this plain beeswax lip balm to wear outdoors when doing these shows and gardening. It is protecting to your lips, keeping them soft.
Makes 1 ½ ounces
• 2 tablespoons grated beeswax
• 1 teaspoon apricot kernel oil
• 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil
On a stove or in a microwave, gently heat beeswax and oils until melted; be careful to not overheat. Stir well to combine. Pour into a small, clean container, then cool completely. You can add essential oils by the drop as it cools or flavored extracts if you want, but I like it plain in the summer.
