Swimmer's Water Resistant Lip Balm

Fresh-Picked Beauty's Water Resistant Lip Balm
As soon as school is out, my family and I head over the mountains to Lake Chelan in Washington State.  We love the outdoors and we spend a good deal of time swimming in the pristine lake.  My lips tend to lose their moisture and often times become super dry and chapped.  Most of the lip balms I make are moisturizing and healing, however they are not super water resistant.  I like to use a heavier and thicker lip balm when my lips are exposed to water.  I have a special recipe for you that uses super-rich carrier oils and pure lanolin.  Apply this water resistant lip balm before swimming and your lips will stay moisturized and protected. 

*****If you don't want to make this yourself, I am selling a limited quantity (ONLY 8 TUBES AVAILABLE) at my Etsy ShopClick HERE to order.  They are only $5.00 per tube and it is a first-come basis. They will go quick so hurry if you want one!!!*************

Place the beeswax and the carnauba wax into a small glass or metal container and place the container into a simmering water bath. Allow to fully melt.  Add in the carrier oils and lanolin.
