This past week I was making some lip balms *cough*
I mean that is what I normally do... besides lotions and cuticle creams. Anyway, I was making some for sale. I was just finishing up one and was all ready planning the next one and then I relized I was out of beeswax.
How did that happen?? Oh right, yes, I have been making lotions and lip balms. So now I am out.
A friend of mine got some from a local bee farmer. The only problem is that...Read Full Post »

I mentioned a few times that I use coconut oil as the base for most of my lip balms.
I wanted to take some time and go over why I really like coconut oil.

If you are like me, a lip balm loving girl, you have probably tried many different brands and probably have few favorites. But , have you ever read the ingredients... Just what makes that smooth balm? What exactly makes it "long lasting"? Have you've wondered why you need to apply more after a hour or so? And why in the world do your lips feel drier and more chapped?
Here are a few possibilities:
