Make your own lip balm for cold sores


1 oz. Emu Oil
1 oz. Almond Oil
1 oz. Avocado Oil
1/2 oz. Shaved Beeswax or Beeswax Pellets
1/4 oz. Aloe Vera Gel
6 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
2 Drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
3 Drops Lime Essential Oil

Mix the almond, avocado, emu oil and beeswax together in a microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for a couple of minutes or until the mixture is completely melted.
(Bowl may also be heated in a pan of water on a stovetop).
Stir the mixture often until the wax is melted.
Add the aloe Vera gel.
Remove from heat and stir in the essential oils.
Stir again and set aside to cool completely.
When cool, transfer into small portable plastic containers or tins.
I generally find my ingredients at our local health food store but if you cannot find them near you, I'm sure you can find them on eBay.
