Say “Kiss Me, Honey” with this homemade lip balm

When honey gives us sweet kisses 

Honey is a marvel. Not only does it naturally sweeten our food, it also provides care for our skin and hair. However, it’s sometimes tricky to use in cosmetics because honey is insoluble in oil… We managed to solve this challenge in our new homemade lip balm recipe, so now we can say, “Kiss Me, Honey!” 

The secret lies in lanolin, another ingredient with wonderful properties. When combined with beeswax, lanolin becomes emulsifying, allowing us to incorporate honey into our homemade lip balm. The result is sweet, hydrating, nourishing, and protective: all such lovely things!

Happiness is lips that say, “Kiss Me, Honey!” 

How to make lip balm with honey 

Before you begin

Make sure the texture of the mixture has thickened before you pour it into the containers. The honey may otherwise sink to the bottom of the pot and be poorly dispersed. To avoid this problem, follow the recipe carefully.
