We haven't addressed lip balm for a long time!  And that's precisely how long Mike's Bullet Proof Lip Balm has lasted, a long time!  My hubby is a funny guy, like most men he poo poo's essential oils in public but then he'll turn the table on me and ask for them in a totally nonchalant manner.  Men are strange. Obviously, my astuteness is lacking because I never noticed that Mike was packing this tin in his pocket EVERYDAY for the last year and a half.  This very tin hailed from an old Lotion Bar post in early 2013 and looks like it too.  Unbeknownst to me my husband stole the blog prop and has been happily keeping his lips soft and cold sore free ever since! Two days ago, he presented me with the empty, battered repurposed tin you see above and announced he was out of the "bullet proof" lip stuff.  What the heck?  My practical hubby then proceeded to request a refill in the original, worn out mini Altoid tin of course.

In case you were wondering why (I did!) Mike referred to his lip balm as bullet proof...

He said it cured on coming cold sores in a flash, softened his Wyoming sunkissed parched lips, healed various scrapes and burns as well as a horse's flesh wound nicely (elk hunt).  Ok, I was unaware of all this but I'm not surprised this lip balm did all of that. I've said before and I'll say it again, your salves, balms and blends are only as effective as the purity of all the ingredients.  Always, always invest in the purest of essential oils, coconut oil, beeswax and any other addition that you can find.  I will also add that Frankincense is a MAJOR player in the Bullet Proof Lip Balm for it's renowned healing abilities, don't scrimp here.  Peppermint gives that feeling of freshness, it tingles, tastes good, freshens breath and calms digestion. Peppermint is a "refrigerant" it has a cooling effect which acts as a pain reliever for headaches, sore muscles or sensitive gums.  Good stuff!

      Enjoy your Bullet Proof Lip Balm, it's fun to make!  Share with friends and don't forget the men in your life, this small gesture just might convince your guy that your zest to live a cleaner, healthier life pays off in a big way.

      Can I make this without the shea butter? How? Naturally, I want to make it NOW.
      I have made Jillee’s petroleum free jelly, http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2012/04/make-your-own-petroleum-free-jelly.html – so I have beeswax pastilles, containers and EOs on hand.
      I am beguiled by the bullet proof name and I want to make a batch with my newly acquired Spark frankincense EO :)
      Thank you!

      Well, having never omitted the shea butter I would try the recipe as is just without the shea. That’s plenty of beeswax and should keep the balm stable.
