Beauty, DIY, Tips


1 cup of olive or almond oil

1 teaspoon echinacea root (optional)

1 teaspoon comfrey leaf

1 teaspoon plantain leaf (herb-not banana!)

1 teaspoon calendula flowers

1 teaspoon yarrow flowers

1 teaspoon rosemary leaf

1/4 cup beeswax pastilles

grapefruit seed extract or vitamin E oil

peppermint essential oil

5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil (optional)


1.Infuse the herbs into the olive oil. There are two ways to do this. You can either combine the herbs and the olive oil in a jar with an airtight lid and leave 3-4 weeks, shaking daily OR heat the herbs and olive oil over low/low heat in a double boiler for 3 hours (low heat!) until the oil is very green. You can also omit this step completely, or just a drop of each of the essential oils instead.

2.Strain the herbs out of the oil by pouring through a cheesecloth. Let all the oil drip out and then squeeze the herbs to get the remaining oil out.

3.Discard the herbs.

4.Heat 1/4 cup of the infused oil in a double boiler with the beeswax until melted and mixed. (save the extra oil for use on wounds/cuts or for another batch of lip salve).

5.Pour into small tins, glass jars or lip chap tubes and use on dry or chapped lips.
