Maybe I’m biased but I’m convinced that everyone needs a jar of this stuff on hand at all times! I keep this salve by my bed to heal dry hands and chapped lips while I sleep. It’s only 3 ingredients and just a matter of melting and mixing 🙂

Coconut oil is a fantastic moisturizer. It will repair cracked and flaky skin immediately. It is also said to have antimicrobial properties, so this salve is great for eczema or other skin ailments.

Pure beeswax makes this salve the perfect consistency for rubbing onto lips and skin and it adds a subtle honey scent. Not only that, but it also helps protect your skin and lips by creating a protective barrier layer. Say bye bye to chapped lips! Before I made this, I constantly had dry lips. Especially lately, I seem to be breathing through my mouth more at night because I’m pregnant. I was waking up to awful cracked lips! This salve is an absolute lifesaver!

The vitamin E oil will heal your skin, making this perfect for applying to scars too 🙂

To give your lips the ultimate treatment, start with this 2-Ingredient Lip Scrub and then follow up with the salve. Your lips will thank you 😉

Use any jar you want, as long as it can hold 100ml or more. I used a recycled salt jar 🙂 You could also use a baby food jar, they generally hold 4oz or 118ml.
