I’m sure we have all got a bit of honey in our cupboards, so why not have a go at making your own lip balm with it. It only requires a few extra ingredients…

1 teaspoon Honey
1 teaspoon Apricot Oil
8 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil
2 teaspoons Coconut Oil
1 tablespoon Shea Butter
1 tablespoon Beeswax

In a small saucepan bring about a pint of water to simmer over a medium heat.
Place an oven-safe bowl over the saucepan to make a double boiler unless you have the pans for this.
Add the beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, and apricot oil to the bowl and heat until the beeswax melts, stirring every now and again.
When the wax is melted, remove the bowl from the heat and stir in the honey and cinnamon essential oil then pour into lip balm tins.
When it’s cool it’s ready to use.

Some more benefits of cinnamon essential oil are :
  • Promotes circulation both internally and when applied to the skin
  • Maintains a healthy immune system
  • Promotes oral health
  • Helps alleviate sore muscles and joints
  • Long used to flavor food and for its internal health benefits
