DIY Almond and Jojoba Lip Butter Recipe

This lip butter recipe helps heal dry, cracked lips while it moisturizes and protects your lip.  The beeswax coats the lips to prevent moisture loss, and the oil heal dry lips.  Tea tree oil and lavender oil heal cracked lips.

You can omit the tea tree oil and lavender and use your own body-safe essential oil or flavoring oil.
