Sugared Pomegranate Lip Polish

Remember when I used to have lips drier than a desert and flakier than a croissant? Well, not anymore, folks! I've also quit my old habit of throwing $22 at fancy department stores for a measly 0.6 ounces of lip polish. I mean, what's next? A gold-plated lip balm? 

Now, like the thrifty beauty queen I am, I whip up my own Sugared Pomegranate Lip Polish for less than a dollar per batch. Yes, you heard that right – no need to adjust your glasses, Grandma!

And let's talk about my secret weapon – Organic Freeze-Dried Pomegranate Powder. Now, I know it sounds like something from a Sci-Fi movie, but trust me, it's legit! This Persian superfood works its magic not just in my morning smoothies, but also in my lip polish. It's packed with antioxidants, vitamin C, and polyphenols, which are just fancy words for "stuff that's really good for you".

So get ready to add a touch of natural "magic" to your lips, all while keeping them as smooth as a baby's bottom. Here's to hoping you and your friends enjoy making and using this beauty recipe as much as I do! And remember, don't let chapped lips ruin your day. Green Blessings!

Sugared Pomegranate Lip Polish
1/2 teaspoon Beeswax 
2 teaspoons of Sweet Almond Oil
1 teaspoon Shea Butter
1 1/4 teaspoon Freeze-Dried Pomegranate Powder
2 teaspoons Cane Sugar
40 drops Vitamin E Oil

Place the Beeswax, Sweet Almond Oil and Shea Butter into a small heat-safe glass and place in a pot of simmering water until the wax and oil has melted together.  Remove from the heat.

Add in the Vitamin E Oil.

Add in the pomegranate powder.

Add in the cane sugar.

Transfer the warm mixture to a small container of your choice. You can occasionally stir the mixture to evenly distribute the sugar while it cools and hardens.

Make a cute little label and attach it to the jar.  This is a picture of the back label I made using a cute little "handmade" rubber stamp. 

TO USE THE LIP POLISH: Gently massage over lips for a few minutes.  Leave on for 5 minutes and then gently rinse off with warm water.  Your lips will be super supple and smooth!!  Enjoy!
