Lips are a unique part of our body in both appearance and construction. Keep yours looking and feeling their best with this simple lip care recipe.



Castor oil mixed with lanolin is soothing to dry, cracked lips and acts as a moisturizing balm to give your lips a natural shine. I also use this Castor Oil Lip Balm recipe on my eyebrows to condition them and keep them in place. MAKES 1/2 OUNCE

• 1 teaspoon castor oil
• 1 teaspoon lanolin or coconut oil
• 1 teaspoon grated beeswax

1. Melt castor oil, lanolin and beeswax using a water bath.

2. Pour melted mixture into a lip gloss container or clean pillbox. Cool completely, until cool to the touch, approximately 20 minutes.

3. To use: Rub into your lips and enjoy.
