our skin. This means it's very easy for them to dry out with heat and cold and
become chapped. Use the following recipe to make a natural lip balm that will
moisturize and protect your lips! Most of these ingredients are available online
or at health food stores. (Adult supervision recommended.)
- Glass beaker or glass measuring cup
- Saucepan and stove
- 3 tsp. unbleached beeswax (in "pearl" form or grated and then measured)

moisture in the skin and prevents irritants from making contact.
- Jojoba oil is a liquid wax from a desert plant and helps protect
- Honey is a sweet flavor, but also a skin moisturizer and can sooth
- Tea tree oil acts as a natural antibacterial and antifungal.
