January is taking its toll on my skin, especially my poor chapped lips, so I am whipping up some lip salve:
6 tbsp. beeswax (or soy wax), grated
7 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. runny honey (optional)
In a double boiler, warm the oil and honey together (do not boil). Remove from the heat and stir in the wax until it has melted. Pour into small pots and seal.
