When I use to live in California, i would get extremely chapped lips that would look like blisters. It would be painful and uncomfortable. I tried every chapstick and salve sold in stores and nothing helped. When I moved to Washington I started to use Burt's Bees peppermint lip balm, which helped quite a bit. After awhile I wanted to create my own recipe with simple, pure ingredients. I used basic ingredients to make a pure lip balm without any harsh and unnecessary chemicals.
In this lip balm, I used beeswax, infused peppermint-almond oil, castor oil and scented with peppermint essential oil. Beeswax conditions skin, peppermint oil gives a refreshing, cooling tingle. Castor oil adds a slight glossy sheen, which helps this minty balm to glide smoothly, leaving lips hydrated and refreshed.
