Chamomile Lip Balm
  • 1/2 tsp. Macadamia Nut oil
  • 1/2 tsp. Jojoba oil
  • 1 tsp. lanolin
  • 1/2 tsp. Cocoa butter
  • 1/2 tsp. Beeswax
  • 1/2 tsp. Chamomile flowers (dried)

In a double-boiler, melt 1/2 tsp. Macadamia Nut oil, 1/2 tsp. jojoba oil, 1/2 tsp. lanolin and 1/2 tsp. Cocoa butter until it is liquefied.   Add 1/2 tsp. of dried Chamomile flowers and stir gently for about 10 minutes.  Strain the mixture with a very fine sieve into a small Pyrex ramekin and clean the area of the double boiler where you had the mixture (Dry the area well).  Pour the new strained mixture back into the double boiler and reheat.  Add another 1/2 tsp. of lanolin and 1/2 tsp. of beeswax shavings.  Heat and stir until liquefied completely.  Remove from the heat and pour into a 1/2 oz. amber or cobalt container.  This is enough for personal use.  To use on dry hands, or to give as gifts, you'll want to double or triple this recipe.

This is a very soothing formula that has real "staying" power.
