Silky smooth lips are yours when you use Lemony Lip Balm!  And the greatest part?  You can make and package a batch of this fabulous organic lip balm in 15 minutes flat!

watkins organic food coloringThe one item on the list of ingredients that you might not have on hand is a package of Yellow Beeswax pieces. 

They’re really easy to find, but you can substitute plain beeswax crystals instead, if you desire.  I bought mine on Amazon, and you can also find it at health food and organic beauty retailers.

By using the originally colored beeswax in yellow, it allowed me to omit any coloring ingredient from the recipe.

And, if I do use any coloring in my organic beauty treatment recipes, it’s an organic food coloring, like Watkins or vegetable powder, like beet.  I found this box at Target, so I know you’ll be able to pick up a box if you’d like.
