Homemade balm for lips

Lips are very delicate and cold weather influents them very much. That’s why we can prepare at home a balm that successfully protects and nourishes our lips from the cold.
It is important to choose precisely what it will consist, because we will eat it when we talk, eat or kiss. The oils selected for the balm must have the highest quality.

Moreover, artificial colors are used extremely rarely. The ideal colors are cinnamon (increasing the volume of lips), cocoa powder (gives the balm chocolate and mild flavor), green tea extract (cures wounds, restores the lipid barrier), infusions of chamomile, saffron, marigold (excellent antiseptic) oil of sea buckthorn oil.
According to the season choose your prescription.
Balm for the summer needs more beeswax. For the winter (which is coming), the percentage of wax should be minimized.
