This is a treatment that has been passed down in my family for generations. My grandmother grew up in Ohio, where the winter weather is extremely cold and harsh. She remembers using this old-fashioned overnight cure for chapped lips. MAKES 1/2 OUNCE

• 1/2 teaspoon glycerin or honey
• 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
• 1/2 teaspoon castor oil

1. Mix together all ingredients. Spread the mixture on your lips and leave on overnight. In the morning, awake to smooth, soothed lips.

2. Any extra should be stored in the refrigerator because the recipe contains fresh lemon juice, which can spoil.
