Coconut Lime Lip Balm // Clean Living

This coconut based lip balm is the perfect summer antidote for dry, chapped lips. The jojoba oil moisturizes without leaving an oily residue. It's also anti-bacterial, which can eliminate harmful bacteria. Coconut oil prevents wrinkles and premature aging, keeping your lips looking youthful and replenished. Vitamin E oil protects the skin from free radicals, which can also prevent premature aging and can potentially protect our skin from possible skin cancer.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp Coconut Oil 
2 tbsp Jojoba Oil 
1 tbsp Beeswax 
10 drops Lime Essential Oil 
A few drops of Vitamin E Oil 

Begin by melting coconut oil, jojoba oil and beeswax in a small sauce pan on the stove top on low, stirring constantly. Once completely melted, stir in essential oil and vitamin E oil. Remove from stove top, pour into a sealable container, and store in a cool place.
