Homemade Lip Balm.

You'll need:
- four tablespoons extra virgin olive oil.
- one tablespoon beeswax pearls.
- one teaspoon honey.
- seven drops essential oil (i used five drops eucalyptus, two drops jasmine).

You'll do:
In a stainless steel pot -- or a bowl if you're using a microwave -- warm the evoo and beeswax. (Make sure you use very low heat. Very low... I used a double boiler.) Next, stir until beeswax is completely melted. Quickly remove from heat and add in the essential oils and honey. Once all is mixed, pour the liquid into a baby food jar small jar. Let it coagulate for about three hours. When done, apply to your lips and they'll be as soft as a baby's bum. Promise.
