Protect Lips with Homemade Lip Balm

A good lip conditioner is essential, whether your lips are
dry or you want to keep them protected. For regular upkeep,
try this easy, homemade recipe:

Mix the following ingredients in a small bowl:

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon canola oil
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon oil or extract
1 teaspoon orange oil or extract

If you’d like a thicker product, add a tablespoon of
glycerin, which can be found at most drug stores. Store the
balm in a glass container in the refrigerator for up to a
week. For best results, apply every evening before bed and
throughout the day as needed.
