I Added the Recipe . . .

 . . . for the lip balm!  Like I promised I would [grin].  Check back a couple posts to try this fabulous stuff!

“This lip balm is AMAZING!  I was a little wary of it at first because it was ‘herbal’, and we all know that ‘herbal’ and ‘tastes good’ don’t go hand in hand, right? :) But I was definitely surprised and “ordered” my own tin which I now use as often as I think about it. :)  Five Stars!  - the fourth oldest Meggs Child

In Christ Alone

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

What is this?

That is the question many asked. This is lip balm.  Just normal lip balm that is used for chap lips….and guess what?  I made it! I put a sprig on top to make it look ” fancy”.

I am including the recipe below:

1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 TBSP beeswax
10-15 drops peppermint oil
1-2 tsp. Vitamin “E” oil
a tin, jar or small tub of some sort
OPT. 1 TBSP. Beet powder
Melt the beeswax and oil together until it looks clear. ( stir continuously)  Add the peppermint oil and E oil. Stir well. For a rose color, add the Beet powder BEFORE the The peppermint oil and E oil. Then pour into tins.  If you do not like the consistency of the chap stick, you can play with the beeswax, adding more or not putting as much in. It all depends on the consistency you want. I did not put beet powder in the one shown above. Have fun making it! It works really well.
